For centuries wine has played a prominent role in the social and cultural experiences of people all over the world. Across cultures and customs, wine has marked the grandest of celebrations, and the most sublime, intimate moments. Wine makes a statement about how we live, our tastes, and our personality. In order to truly appreciate wine, one must consider more than just how the wine tastes. The Tacoma Wine Explorers is looking for people who have a passion for wine, whether they are new to wine or have a more experienced palate; this is not a group for “wine snobs.” But, if you’re interested in discovering wines from all over the world, expanding your sensory perceptions of wine, learning more about wine and food pairings, and of course, making new friends, then we look forward to meeting you at our next monthly meeting.
