The goal of this group is to present wine tastings in a manner that allows its members to meet regularly to enjoy fellowship, pot luck dinners and most importantly taste wines from around the world, with learning opportunities for everyone from newbies to oenophiles. Each member will be encouraged (but not required) to host a "meetup." At each event, we will either select the wine varietal and wine region for the next meetup or the host-volunteers for the next event will choose the wine varietal/region for the event.
Members who choose to attend these meetings will then make a dish and bring a single bottle of wine that meets the criteria set by that meeting's host. A double blind wine tasting and meal then follows. No one will know who brought the wines being poured until the tasting and voting is complete and then all will be revealed.
The most important thing here is that we all love wine and have a great time. "Learning" will take care of itself! If you love meeting new people, cooking and eating great food and either love wine or just want to learn more about it, this group is for you! Cheers!!!
