Late last year we took a poll asking what our members wanted for meetups. We have accomplished some of those, but a top request was a regional tasting. In this tasting we will explore the Piedmont region of Italy. There will be multiple example varietals. We hope that this will give our members a feel for how the region makes their wine. As you will learn, a cabernet sauvignon in France, California, and Argentina can all taste like completely different grapes if you don't know how to pick up the terroir.
This meet up will be held at the Community tap on August 27, 2013. We will have a charge of $20 pp for this event, and will be using the meet up payment system. We hope you join us for this event.
The wines we plan to taste from Grassroots are:
Ferrando Erbaluce di Caluso
Scarpetta Barbera del Monferrato
Cantina del Pino Dolcetto d'Alba
La Spinetta Moscato d'Asti
