What started your interest in wine?

I worked in a liquor store when I was 18 (in the 70's you could drink wine and beer legally at 18). The prices of good french and California wines were reasonable with the employee discount.

What is your favorite wine region or country?

It's hard to choose - I love Italian Reds but then I discoverd the Chilean Reds like Malbecs. For now I'll say the Russian River Valley.

What are your favorite white and red varietals?

Montepulciano, Malbec, big buttery Chardonnays, Sauvignon Blanc

What's the best bottle you've tasted lately?

I have the worst memory for names but it was a chilean malbec that I bought at Stew's.

What do you hope to gain from being a member of this group?

I'd like to try a wider variety of wines and understand more about the flavors so that I can describe what I do and don't like about particular wines.

Introduction

I saw this wine group at Cranberry Park for the Improv night and it seemed like a great way to meet people and learn more about wine. I love wine, but I only know enough to pick a good italian or a nice Chardonnay - I need to expand my horizons.

What Jan is saying about this Meetup Group

The Fairfield County Wine Meetup is a great group of fun and interesting people.
