Wines You Can’t Afford . . . To Miss – ITALY

This event is not going to get you those wines for free, but it will give you an opportunity to try a lot more of those wines that you may consider to be outside your normal budget.

This tasting is for Italian wines only.

Price of admittance for this tasting is a dish to share and a bottle of Italian wine with a retail value of OVER $50.00.

To help ensure that each person receives a sufficient taste of each wine, we have had to limit participation in this event.

We will nose and taste the wines, profiling the experience of each wine and taking notes.

Let’s REALLY look for something special to bring to this tasting. It can be a bottle that you’ve cellared for a while and you wish to share with other oenophiles, or one that you’ve always wanted to buy, but just can’t make yourself do it unless it’s a “special occasion.”

So bring that special bottle of Italian wine and a dish to share and be prepared to enjoy a memorable tasting experience!

NOTE: If you are bringing a guest, please bring two bottles of wine and two dishes to share.

    This I think can be considered one of the best WYCA events. Thank you Roger for hosting this series of very educational and socially engaging events.

    We always enjoy this event. We love to try new wines and there is always a nice crowd. Each time we go we've learned to appreciate different wines and meet great people.
