Partake in the pleasures of the Piedmont. The Noble Nebbiolo grape beautifully becomes Barolo and Babaresco. Not to mention the bewitching Barbera and delightful Dolcetto wines.
At this meetup we will explore the pleasing wines of the Piedmont. I will bring a Barolo and a Barbaresco. Please feel free to bring any Piedmont wine from Barolos to Barbarescos to Dolcettos to Barberas.
Let's imbibe in the illustrious Italian wines of the Piedmont.
$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.

Great Value event, the last 4 times, 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, Last week the winner took home $95.
We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.
Think you know Nebbiolo? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.
