A Cult Wine Christmas

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Kristin's House

Deck the halls and don your best festive Holiday wear and bring a favorite (or new) cult wine!  At this event, attendees bring a cult wine priced over $30, (along with a dish to share) AND either a description of the winery, winemaker and/or tasting notes of the wine.  You will need to do your homework on this!

For those unfamiliar with the term, a "cult" wine is a wine that has one or more of the following characteristics: Low production, family owned, specialty winery (i.e. specializing in a specific wine style or blend), a classic wine or of legendary origin (i.e. Opus One, Screaming Eagle, a 1st Growth Bordeaux, Chateau Montelena...).  The wine could be made from any grape including little known grapes. Port, dessert wine and blends also may fall into this category.  Little known or less widely distributed wines are great candidates for this tasting and you may have found one of these wines at your last visit to wine country.

We will open each wine individually and discuss the wine from your notes. Please bring a dish to share and a bottle of wine for each person attending.  Should you need any ideas or assistance in choosing a wine, please let me know. Be creative and let's have a great Cult Christmas!
