As you may know by now, Christan resigned as the organizer of this group. As one of the new organizers, I would like to say hello and give you a sense of the type of events we will be organizing in the near future (starting in September.)
This group will no longer conduct "speed-dating" events. The objective of this group is consistent with the other groups we're involved with ),namely:
(1) Explore the wonderful world of fine wine, and
(2) meet exciting and friendly people. We do so by organizing wine-tasting events that feature world-class wines (rated 90+). The events are educational and social. They include seminars pertinent to a specific subject & wine-theme, where as many as 12 top rated wines (90+) are tasted (we also went crazy once with an event featuring 21 different wines , which we appropriately dubbed the "Mother of All Wine Tastings" ... who knows, we may do it again).
Our most recent Wine Tasting & Social Mingling event took place on July 23rd at the new Foley Art Gallery. We tasted, sipped & drank 12 top-rated (90+) wines from around the world, munched on delectable cheeses, and mingled with other friendly and approachable wine-loving crowd such as yourself. The environment of our events is highly conducive to socializing and meeting people. Guaranteed!!!
The bottom line is that you'll meet incredibly interesting and friendly people as you sip incredibly delicious wines you'll probably never on your own (especially 12 wines rated 90+ all lined up - right?
So don't miss our next event!!!
