Our gathering is just two days off, and it sounds really great.
The cost will be somewhere around $20-24 depending on what we open and how many people come.
Remember we will need snacks, and the closer they fit the theme, the better.
There are a few logistical notes:
We will be using our new room, which is nice but we have never actually had 16-18 people in it, so bear that in mind. Something could go wrong. We have a large countertop for the snacks and a sink. The kitchen upstairs is also available for food prep.
Parking at our place has often been a challenge, and the snow restricts it further. Please work together to make the best of it. If the upper pad is full, you can park on the driveway. There is a wider, common driveway next door that several people can use, too, particularly if you need to leave early. We have had people park on the street, too, with no problem as long as traffic can get by.
Wine Enthusiasts who meet once per month to taste wine by sharing the costs and educating each other about grapes, regions, styles, food pairings, etc. Our goal is to taste better wines than the mass marketed type.
We have several American Wine Society Certified Wine Judges, a Certified Sommelier, and many wine enthusiasts.
This is a wine snob free zone. All wine people are welcome.
