Introduction

Hi, I am Audrey.

What kind of wines do you like ? Be as specific as possible...

My faves are from the Friuli region in northern Italy -- red: Refosco, white: Tocai (now called Friulano after a bitter EU dispute). However, I really have an appreciation for most types of wine. I like to enjoy a quality dry Rose/Rosato on a hot afternoon, I like Prosecco or Cava, I enjoy a nice Pinot Noir, and have a preference for oaky Chardonnays, but have had some nice unoaked as well. I tend to lean towards crisp, citrusy whites and complex reds with hints of currant, cherries, and/or chocolate. I'm still learning what I like, and refining my tastes.

What kind of wine tastings and events would you like to see planned for this group?

I would enjoy getting to know some of the Texas wines...and I enjoy a diverse tasting that helps me discern specific attributes.

Why did you choose to join this group instead of one of the other wine groups on Meetup?

Describe a wine tasting that was memorable.

When I was stationed in Italy, my friends and I went to a winery where the owners were so welcoming, they invited us into their home and provided meats, cheeses, breads...it was awesome. The camaraderie and fellowship was amazing.

Introduction

After serving in the military, I attended graduate school and eventually landed in Dallas working in the financial services industry.
