Our next tasting will also be a group effort.

Everyone is welcome to bring in one or more wines. The only requirement is that the wine, it's origin, the grapes it's made from, the terroir or even the vintage is "exotic". The exact definition of this is left up to you. So this is your chance to finally taste those oddities that have been lying around in the cellar for a while.. Maybe the bottle of Hárslevelű, the white with years of skincontact or the special Vin des Glaciers you smuggled out of the private tasting you had in Switzerland. And what about that special bottle of underwater aged wine or the one from one of the few wineries in Nevada, Libanon or Ireland? By now, you probably got the idea!

This meetup will take place on Saturday April 12 at 6pm. There will be some food prior to and during the tasting, so no need to eat in advance! It will be hosted by Roel in his place in Berlicum (near 's-Hertogenbosch).

Planning to attend? Then show your interest and RSVP!

The winelist will be coordinated by Roel. If you have one or more wines to bring, please let me know. But don't tell me what you're bringing! That takes away the fun of blind tasting. Just let me know the cost of the bottle(s) and what category it's (they're) in:

- bubbly
- Crisp, fresh white
- Medium to full bodied white
- Light red
- Medium to full bodied red
- Sweet or fortified

I'll try to coordinate everything so that we have about a good lineup of around 12 wines and everything is within budget.

Finally, the small-print about finances:

We share the cost of the wines that we taste. To provide the organizer(s) with a clear budget, we have decided to start asking for payment in advance. If you Rsvp'd and paid, but decide not to come, someone on the waiting list can take your place and your share will be refunded. If your payment is not received within a week of your Rsvp, your spot will be offered to the first person on the waiting list. So please, arrange for the payment immediately after your Rsvp.
