May wine tasting!

  • May 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Let's learn some French!  I'll try to get some information on French wines and if you know any details about french wines, bring them to share.

 

What to bring:  A French wine.  It should be more than $8.  A yummy dish that is home made and tasty.  If you know french cuisine, even better.  Let's get into the mood of the event by dressing sophisticated. 

I would prefer guests to leave their shoes by the door so remember to wear some colorful socks.  I also have a dog that will be making her way around.  I look forward to a joyful event.

Address  and phone number will be sent 24 hours before the event.  Please be respectful and change your rsvp in a timely manner if things come up.

    Sandy! Thanks for yet another awesome wine tasting party at your house! So, so much fun! Thank you all for all the good times, good food, and friendship. With Wilson's frog legs, Juliann and David's French music, and Brian's "stinky" (I say aromatic) cheese, I thought I might have been in a Parisian apartment off the Champs-Elysées.
    Spanish wine theme next month? Paella?
    Oui, Sandy, merci beaucoup!

    Sandy, I'm coming straight from work. Is there something i can bring that i can pick up on my way? Or does anyone have a suggestion?

  • Wilson T.

    Not sure what wines people are bringing so I'll bring a white chenin Blanc and a red blend and choose one depending on what others bring ... and I managed to get some frogs legs :-)

    Salut, Sandy! How dressy would you like us to be for the wine tasting? A touch of glamour or 'business casual'?

    May 17, 2013

    • Sandy

      Dressy is nice, but be comfortable.

      May 17, 2013

    • Sam

      Ok, no tie!

    Hi S.O. Friends! Do we need more main course fare (e.g., meat for the grill) or should I bring petite French items like cornichons and pâté or cheese? Right now, it looks like we have salad, French cheese, quiche, possibly frogs legs, and a blueberry gallette.

    May 17, 2013

    • Sandy

      I think I'll do chicken of some sort

      May 17, 2013

    • Sam

      I'll bring a main dish. Was thinking coq au vin, but as you're doing chicken, I'll bring a nice French pork loin dish I like.

      Its a manual waitlist. The open spot went to whomever saw the open spot and grabbed it first. Automatic wait list puts people automatically on and then they don't show up. This way, the people that want to go are watching and you have to change your status.

    I think I'll bring my spinach and strawberry salad and a fresh white wine.

    I went to wine and more to find my wine. What an adventure to see all the different french wines listed according to where in France. I got Macon villages white burgundy wine.

    ‘J’apporterai deux chaises et une bouteille de vin rouge.’ ‘I’ll bring two chairs and a bottle of red wine.’ I’ve heard it’s a very good Côtes du Rhône. Anyone interested in some French tunes or French lessons? I have some French “greatest hits” on CD. (Does anyone have a CD boom box?)

    May 13, 2013

    • Sandy

      No chairs needed. Music would be nice. I have a CD player.

    • Sam

      Yes, it is indeed a nice Cote de Rhone. I will bring the wine cousin of your red Cote de Rhone!
