Hello from the new Co-Organizer

Hello dear members,

I want to take the chance to introduce myself to you all and to tell you about what we, Sarah, her team and me, want to organize along the year.

First of all, my name is Sonja John, I'm in Singapore approximately one year and I'm a passionate wine drinker. So, who wonders that I was immediately convinced to take over some responsibilities in this group?

I'm german and I grew up close to most of the german wine regions. During my studies I lived in France, where I used the time to taste me through their wines. Here in Singapore I discovered the wide range of the so called new world wines - fabulous! And I must say wine is a never ending story....

Along this year we are planning to do some wine dinners to show especially how to find the right wine for the very spicy asian cuisine.

Also we like to do focused tasting to bring you closer to the specifics of certain wine regions or even to teach you to sniff out the characteristics of certain grapes, like Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc or Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.

A big fun are always blind tastings. The true tasting where you just can score the content of your glass and nothing else. That is on the schedule as well.

We also discussed to start a project for cooking with wine. We would like to organize some cooking classes where you are cooking the dinner together with a chef de cuisine and the other participants. On the menue would be something like Coq au Vin or a Bouillabaisse.
So please let me know, what you think about this idea and what you would like to cook. Thank you.

The next meet up will be at January 30 at the Soma Bar. Please have a look at the meetup schedule for details.

Hope to see you soon at one of the meetups!

Sonja
