Explore Popular Reds

  • May 11, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Sonya & Mike's Home

Hi everyone!

Normally when I explore wine I go for the whites first.  I'm not sure if that's me getting them out of the way since I prefer reds, or if I subconsciously like whites more than I think I do.  Either way, this time I would like to drink some reds first instead.  It seems most of the feedback I heard at the last meetup indicated most of you prefer reds anyway... so let's do it.

Maybe "popular" isn't a good term here... and "re-explore" might be more appropriate since we've all likely had these varieties before... or potentially what I'm going for is "most common grapes."  The theme for this event will be to get together to taste and discuss Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinot Noir.  I'll supply a couple stereotypical styles of each, and I ask that you bring a $5 donation per person to pitch in so I don't go entirely broke.  This will be a tasting of 6 wines total.  We made it through 5 last time, but we socialized for a while before tasting.  So if we're diligent I don't see 6 being a problem, and that will give us plenty to talk about.

Please text or call me [masked]) to receive our exact address.  This is a private residence and neighborhood so we're only giving that information out to those attending.  This residence has two cats, so please keep that in mind when deciding to attend if you have allergies or simply don't like furry feline quadrupeds.

    I'm planning on bringing snack tonight.
    What's everyone else bringing, so we don't have doubles or triples of 1 snack?
    I am planning a hummus trio with pita and veggies.

    Hi Michael and Sonya, I have been sick with the crud for a week. I am changing my status to maybe. Sorry to be wishy washy. If you need to give my seat away no problem. j.

      No worries Jana. The "wait list" folks have been included and we still have a couple spots open. So we can leave your RSVP the way it is for now. If you're feeling better, then come on over!

      Take care, and we hope to see you Saturday in tip top shape.

    How can we get your gate code? We didn't have it last time but luckily we snuck in when someone was leaving.

      You can text me if you're a "texter", or call me if you're a "caller", or email me if you're an "emailer", or sneak in again if you're still a "ninja".

    For anyone that still needs my exact address or gate code, please shoot me a text, email, or phone call, whichever is most convenient for you, and I will give you that information directly. It's just not something we care to share through this system for privacy reasons; for ourselves and for our neighborhood.

    Thanks.
