We have been talking about this for a long, long time. My house is finally ready for company again, so let's do it a my house!
I am not sure how to work attendance when we have 30 already signed up before the meet-up is even announced, but we'll figure it out.
What I want to do is have about 10 to 12 wine lovers, each bringing their wine in a plain brown bag, and two or three identical glasses for tasting. Each attendee would let me know what wine they are bringing (to avoid duplications and to also have diversity). Rather than having all of one varietal, we will have four or so varietals, with at least two of each that we can blind taste side by side. And whites and reds are acceptable.
But to ease or limit the choice a bit: Central Coast current release wines, $20 to $30 retail price range (if the wine is regularly $22 and you got it for $11, that fits in the range).
With the large number of varietals grown in the area, please let me know ASAP what you want to bring, as the last to respond will need to bring a wine to match-up against an early responder.
I will make a main course (thinking a stew right now). I will need some sides/salads, breads and desserts.
