Syracuse Wine Meetup Message Board › Wine Tasting Ediquate
Thank you everyone for an enthusiastic response to the French Wine/Food Paring Party. A friendly reminder for those who are new and have never attended one of these events.
We will be doing a blind tasting of a select number from the wines you bring. The informal judging will begin promptly at 7:30PM. The 3 winners receive a full bottle of your choice from Lakeland Winery (excluding the new and popular Pomegranate Zinfandel). You can come late, but please have your wines and food there for our enjoyment.
When you arrive, please write your wine's name and your name on the sign in sheet. Also, fill out a name tag for a pleasant accessory, and reminder for others who don't know you.
Lakeland Winery has a "wine tasting permit", not an "on-premise tasting permit". The difference is the quantity in your glass. Please be respectful and allow us to pour your wines during the wine tasting-judging. Afterward, if you pour your own wine, allow yourself the privilege of:
1. Leaving some for others. A good amount is 1/3 glass, or about 3 ounces.
2. Not dumping much when you realize you don't like the wine. Wine snobs hate this faux pas.
3. Remembering this is a wine tasting event...not happy hour.
4. Driving home safely. This is a prerequisite to your future attendance.
I'm really looking forward to this fun filled, happy event. Hope you are too.
Joie de Vivre
