Contrasts of the New World

  • Feb 22, 2014 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our next tasting will be a group effort, organized by Mai, Denise and Roel.

Our different backgrounds and characters show themselves in the wines we select. In several flights, we will, each time, compare three wines with similar properties, but always from three distinct 'new world' wine growing regions: South Africa (selected by Roel), Australia (selected by Mai) and the United States (selected by Denise).

This meetup will take place on Saturday February 22nd.

It will be hosted by Denise and Bill in their place in Nijmegen. Planning to attend? Then show your interest and RSVP!

We share the cost of the wines that we taste. To provide the organizer(s) with a clear budget, we have decided to start asking for payment in advance. If you Rsvp'd and paid, but decide not to come, someone on the waiting list can take your place and your share will be refunded. If your payment is not received within a week of your Rsvp, your spot will be offered to the first person on the waiting list. So please, arrange for the payment immediately after your Rsvp.

    We've got a great group together, with an extension to 10 people at the last minute. That will give us that little bit of extra budget to start off and finish with something special! The line-up of SA wines looks good and I'm sure the CA and AU lineup will be just as great! See you all tomorrow, 8pm at Denise and Bill's place.

    Hi Clorina, I've just aent you a reply. I'm in South Africa right now, so there was a slight delay in reading and replying. But it's no prob to just do a bank transfer. I see that you've already changed your rsvp into no, but if you still want to join us: you're welcome!
