Beautiful Barolos, Piedmont Pleasures of the Noble Nebbiolo - BYOB or Just Taste

Come taste in the pleasant chill of the underground tasting room at Portland Wine Storage. Come and cool down!

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.

Meat and Cheese plates provided.

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.

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

    Is it alright if I bring something to munch on? Perhaps some meatballs in marinara, or a pasta dish that keeps nicely in the slow cooker. Let me know!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
