Tasting of Barolo and Barbaresco
Along with Brunello di Montalcino made from the Sangiovese grape, the Barolo and Barbaresco wines made from the Nebbiolo grape stand at the very pinnacle of the Italian wine DOCG pyramid. They are never cheap (and many are overpriced); but when these wines are well made and have at least eight to ten years of bottle age, they can be a religious experience to drink. The wonderful 2007 vintage for example, is still in its infancy; however, a hint of what is to come may be experienced now. The area was blessed in having four recent back-to-back vintages, and for older back-to-back vintages producing excellent wine - 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999 - so we should have many wines on the market to choose from!

What we're about

Whether you're knowledgeable or just wanting to learn, the common denominator is a desire to have fun while learning, sharing and attending tasting dinners at some of the best local restaurants, seminars, learning about wine making, and sometimes taking trips to further-away wineries.

Our Meetups are social, entertaining, educational and are always specifically structured for the enjoyment of the featured wines, paired with specially selected dishes; as well as for the comfort of all who attend. We focus primarily on negotiating a fixed price for members to enjoy an unforgettable wine experience. Most of our events will be conducted as blind tastings, and will be structured so as to allow members to compare great wines on a particular theme.

Will the events be cheap? Most likely not; however we strive to provide an unparalleled value, all things considered. We're hoping this will be the most fantastic wine club in the Palm Beaches! We are not affiliated with any retail store or wholesale wine business - and just want to be an advocate for the enrichment of our members.

Cheers, and In Vino Veritas!
