Taste Tuscany - Brunello di Montalcino to Super Tuscans - BYOB or Just Taste

From the storied ancient traditions of Tuscany comes the world's pinnacle of Sangiovese - Brunello di Montalcino. Add to that, a new striding colossus has emerged from under the Tuscan sun, the Super-Tuscan. Usually it's Sangiovese blended with Cabernet and/or Merlot and/or Syrah to give a new yet sublime take on Tuscan wine.

Come taste the treasures of Tuscany. BYOB or Just show up to taste.

$5 if you bring a bottle $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Meat and Cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 4, everyone got their fill, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50.

Think you know Tuscany? Bring a bottle and let's find out.

Come taste Tuscan Treasure.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

Note the venue change to Cellar 55 in Vancouver

We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.

    Love that we'll be meeting up in the 'couv for this one. If Michelle gives the thumbs up, I'd be happy to bring an appetizer to pair with all of the big Tuscan wines.
