Backyard White Wine Tasting

With the arrival of hot summer days comes a craving for lighter, refreshing wines. Whites take on this duty effortlessly: They're crisp, chilled, and often have lower alcohol levels than reds, keeping you relaxed, revitalized, and less dehydrated.

Please bring a bottle of white wine from of one of the following category's. Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Gewurtztraminer or Semillon. We will be tasting, rating and then choosing the best summer wine.

If your wine has a great food pairing, please bring that also, if not and you don't want to stress, bring any appetizer to share with others.

If you want to swim afterwards or enjoy the hot tub, bring your suit and towel.

    A wonderful time! Thanks to all who made it possible....I'd like to thank the academy for voting for my wine .... do I still owe anyone bribe money? If so I've got some cute little liquor bottles and a wonderful cigar box with a bow, but don't even ask for the leopard-print shoe wine-stopper! It's all mine! What wonderful prize! Now I'm wondering when the next tasting is so I can put together a pair... - Gini

      It helps if I actually read.... the website calls the wine Mistura Blanco, but I'm not sure of the year...my bet is that it was the 2012 they still have available.

      Thanks Gini! I loved your winning wine. My favorite white is a nice creamy Chardonnay, and this wine reminded me so much of one. Slightly sweet on the front, creamy throughout the rest of the way...... Lovely!

    Wonderful time! Thanks Cindy & Carole (and Chris). Pool time sipping on good white wine, John 'enticing' Rose to get into the pool, all good fun. Who knew rice was so good for drying out iPhones....

    Forgive me but I got stuck with a flat tire and I'm not going to make it. I feel terrible and hope someone on the waiting list who lives close can still be called?

      Barb, I am thinking a drink for the Party Queen and the Poobah should be in order :)

    Sorry but this weather is too hot for me. I kept hoping the weather people were wrong but I guess it will be a scorcher. Have a glass of white for me!

    1 · July 11, 2014

    • Cindy

      It's going to be a hot one!

      July 11, 2014

    • Mara

      That's why I cancelled as well. Way too hot for me.

      July 12, 2014

  • Gini

    I've not tried the grape thing but it sounds like a great trick for today's weather. I've made freshrolls (salad roll) and peanut sauce and plan on bringing a Sauvignon Blanc. Hopefully there will be a few others to pit it against. See you soon... Can't wait for the AC!

    July 12, 2014

  • Barb G.

    I've got my wine and I'm freezing a big bunch of green seedless grapes too. I love using them when it's warm out - they are perfect ice cubes without diluting your wine!
    LOL

    i am so excited... picked up some wine today... the secret easy grab favorite of mine.. and i hope all yours too.. i plan to bring 2 or 3 bottles so all can try..

  • Ronda

    How do you get on the wait list?

    July 11, 2014

  • Gretchen S.

    I am so bummed! Allen and I thought there was no way we would get off the wait list, so we made plans to go hiking. There's no guarantee we will get back in time, so will free up the spots for others.

    July 11, 2014

  • Ray

    Aw man, same here! If there are any openings let me know too!

    1 · July 11, 2014

  • Ronda

    I just signed up for this group, if any opening become available for this event I'd love to join. Not sure how this works, newbie :)

    I woke up with a scratchy throat this morning and am having breathing difficulties. It might just be allergies from something in the Park yesterday but I thought I should open up a spot just in case I am coming down with something. I didn't want to leave it to the last minute to cancel.

    So sorry Cindy and Jerry. I was really looking forward to spending some time with you. We appreciate all the times you open your home to us. Thank you.

    See you next time!

    July 11, 2014

    • Cindy

      Going to miss you Gail. My allergies are bothering me too.

      1 · July 11, 2014

  • Cindy

    It's going to be HOT, 92 in fact! I'll have plenty of cold water to keep us hydrated. Remember your suit if you want to swim. My house is air conditioned if we need to go inside.

    June 17, 2014

      Last we spoke, we were keeping it on the smaller side this time.

      June 17, 2014
