Welcome to the Belleair Bluffs Vino Lovers Wine Tasting Group! We are so glad you are here. This is a group for "couples" between the ages of 40-65. All wine tasting events will be for "couples only".
Some people might think of a wine-tasting group as a snooty bunch of cork dorks, discussing terroir and hints of brambles. While wine snobbery is plenty good for jokes, our Wine club brings people together instead of setting them apart.
Our Belleair Bluffs Vino Lovers group is for anyone in the area. You do not have to live in Belleair. We would like to create a casual, entertaining and hands-on approach to learning enough about wine to be confident in making selections. We will explore all types of wine and learn about them.
Our goal for this meet up is to provide a fun atmosphere to share wine tastings with other couples.
Here is how it will work. We will set the date and pick the varietal (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Grigio, etc.) Each couple that comes will bring a bottle of the varietal picked. When you arrive, we will promptly take your bottle from you and bag it, so even you will not know which bottle is yours. It will be fun to see if you figure that out! Everyone will taste all of the bottles brought (roughly 5-7 different bottles of the same varietal). Each couple will score each tasting, then at the end we will tally up what the placings are. That's it!
Right now, we are going to meet once a month. However, we may add more gatherings in the future.
The Belleair Bluffs Vino Lovers is strictly for tasting wine. If your spouse does not like wine, this is not the group for you. Also, we will not be serving dinner/food. Please eat before you come. These gatherings will be for tastings only (we will serve a cleansing palate snack such as crackers).
We plan to host the wine tastings in Belleair Bluffs and we will be limiting the number of couples. While the group may have many people, the wine tasting events will be a set number of couples. RSVPing will be very important.
We'd like to specify that the group is for "couples only" . Even if you want to attend an event , but your spouse is unavailable we are sorry - but you won't be able to attend as a single.
