Australia has been making great Shiraz; New Zealand has been making stellar Sauvignon Blancs.
And they make other wonderful wines also. Personally, I've found some delicious Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre wines in the Barossa Valley.
Instructions: bring a bottle of wine and an appetizer.
OR bring a dish (we encourage this, because we don't need 50 bottles of wine).
OR bring $20.
Please RSVP with what you will bring for an appetizer.
The dish allows us to appreciate the wine more. Those who bring $20 help me ensure we have a variety of wines to contrast to our normal fare. I front the $20 and pool the amount to purchase bottles most individuals might not buy except for special occasions.
When you bring your wine, the organizers will organize, uncork and bag the wines into groups. Then people can taste the wines at their leisure. Yes, it is a blind tasting.
The speaker will make a brief introduction in the beginning, and then toward the end people can talk about the wines. We then take the wines out of the bags.
No charge for event, but there is a donation basket for the cleanup. I might get four bottles of prosecco as an apertif. If you'd like a glass, I'd welcome the opportunity to share the cost. Please take the poll so I can get an estimate.
You will reward the organizers if you RSVP with the winery/grape variety, the appetizer and/or meal and/or $20.
