Like Wine? Like meeting new people? You'll love this event... This is a joint meetup with the award winning Tastour. To see who else is coming along or for more foodie events visit http://www.meetup.com/tastour There's usually around 50 people at this event, and the format is hosted every month.
This month's theme is: GUESS THE GRAPE
After over 50 wine miniTASTINGs, we've had a few request for a stand up mixer style event, but at the same price as our miniTASTING... You will be served 6 different wines. The lable will be covered and you will be asked to guest the grape. You will be given clues and hints but most importantly you will be asked to work together in small teams to try to guess the answer.
ALL OF OUR EVENTS ARE DESIGNED TO ENCOURAGE SOCIALING. YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE ANY WINE KNOWLEDGE TO ATTEND - ONLY THAT YOU KNOW YOU LIKE WINE.
If you're coming alone for the first time, don't worry - I'll be there with a big welcoming smile and make sure are introduced to a fun group of people.
