What we're about

What's a Blind Tasting?

We are an "interactive" group of fun Chicas and wine "lovers" to taste and sample a variety of wines for an affordabl price .

Each month a member volunteers to hold a "tasting" at her home. The grape of the month is pre-selected, i.e., Merlot, Cab, Pinot, etc, that each guest will purchase and bring plus an appetizer to share. As your organizer, I will also impart my knowledge of each wine we taste.

VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING "NO SHOWS"

Because of all the time and effort that each host spends preparing their home for our tastings, we have a strict "NO SHOW" policy. Therefore, those members who RSVP and then fail to show up, will be subject to being removed from the group. ,
