Meetup: BYOB - Your Favorite South American Wines!

Announcing our first official meetup of the year! 
The polls are in, and one of the definite favorites was a BYOB of a certain type (region, grape type, or price).  So, I thought we could do a BYOB of South American Wines.

Bring a bottle of your favorite wine from anywhere in South America.  I would suggest $10-20 dollar range, but bring whatever you would like to share with everyone.  Perhaps you found a gem that is too good to keep private!  I'm sure there will be a lot of good Argentinean Malbecs in the mix, but don't limit yourself to just that one varietal.  Perhaps you have a Chilean Merlot from Rapel Valley, an Uruguayan Tannat, or a Cabernet Sauvignon from Maipo.  And don't think you need to bring reds only.  There are good Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay regions in both Argentina and Chile.

So, you have lots of choices, the joy of this type of meetup is finding things you never would have thought to try yourself.  Hopefully we will come away from this finding some new wines to enjoy.

This event is at the Nose Dive tasting room, so space is limited.  There is a second meetup happening at the end of the month that will be larger and will be a broader BYOB event, so don't be discouraged if you don't get into this one, you'll only have to wait two weeks longer!

The $15 charge is to cover the costs of the room and the hors d'oeuvres as usual.  Remember, this is a tasting, not a drinking.  The snacks are to give us some food in our stomachs, as this could be up to 20 wines we taste.  Do not be afraid to dump and spit!

    Had a great time with everyone. I was very surprised and joyed by the lack of Malbecs. We had a good variety of wines, and I got a lot of feedback from everyone regarding future meetups, so thank you all for coming out.

    Lots of fun and educational. Thought it was great that there were different grape varieties besides the well known Malbec of South American. And Mark is always the knowledgeable host and this always adds to our meet-ups!

    Good afternoon!
    This is the first meeting i'll attend since i arrived from Italy in Greenville a month ago, i'm looking forward to taste some good wines from South America and have a chat with other wine lover fellows!
    I'll bring a Pinot Noir from Argentina that i like very much.
    Unfortunately yesterday i had a problem with my car; i would be glad if there is someone who could give me a ride or share a taxi to my home in Woodruff Road after the meeting.
    See you this evening!

      Yes, Cindy is going to cover his ride home, and if she can't I'm available as well.

      I was asking about if the new person needed the ride to the Nosedive. Thought maybe I could help save the taxi fare by providing a ride to downtown. That was what I was what I was inquiring about. Just trying to help out.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
