As most of you know by now, our meetups are geared for those who want to socialize while exploring new wines from boutique producers.  If you would rather just mingle where wine provides a pretext for a singles mixer,  then sign up for one of the meetups that go to high overhead wine bars where you can nurse one glass for the evening or try a flight of three limited pours for $15.

We have winnowed down the original 24 unique proprietary blends chosen at random that were rated and ranked at our two previous proprietary blend galtherings  You are invited to evaluate this smaller group of finalists to pick the best of the best   The various participating wineries are eagerly awaiting the findings of of our citizen judges.

The wines will be evaluated accompanied with reasonably priced no host Japanese food (no charge for the wine).  In this photo above, members are rating Bordeaux style California releases at Tempura House back in 2010 (Meryl Schreibstein found a winner)
