His professional credentials are quite impressive. Proctor is a member of numerous organizations, including the Guild of Sommeliers, the Chaine des Rotisseurs, and the American Sommelier Association. Recently, in March 2013 Proctor was named Winemaking Ambassador at Penfolds Wine of Australia. Join us Thursday for a special night ,experience the history of Penfolds and taste some of the famous wines.
From its humble beginnings in the mid-19th century, crafting fortified wine from a few cuttings brought from France, Penfolds has since become a leader in fine Australian winemaking, known the world over for its rich and complex Penfolds Grange.

    Weiland's Gourmet Market on Indianola (north of Oakland Park) has informal wine tastings on the weekends (Fri, Sat, Sun?). Usually 4 wines are offered focused on some theme (roses, fortified, etc.) for $3 for all four (or .75) for individual. They also have other food/wine evening events on an irregular basis. They don't advertise on their web site, so you just have to show up and see what's pouring. A nice way to casually sample good quality wines.

    Why is every meet-up at the Andersons? Wouldn't it be a good idea to do this at different locations?

      Hi Rick: Ryan is correct. Any of our 657 members can post information about wine venues or tasting events. As the Meetup organizer I would love to have more folks involved posting events. As soon as 3 folks RSVP for any suggested event, it is posted out to the entire group. Right now, this new event is on our calendar: http://www.meetup.com...­ best regards,
