Thursday Virtual Happy Hour: A Champagne Toast

Location visible to members

NOTE: We return to Thursdays this week.

This week we continue our exploration of French wine in the region east of Paris: Champagne. There are four kinds of Champagne that you may enjoy. Non Vintage is composed by blending different cuvees from various vineyards and vintages. Vintage is created from a single vintage. Blanc de Noirs is made from varying proportions of Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. Blanc de Blancs is made only from white grapes, usually from Chardonnay, but could also contain Arbane, Pinot Blanc, and Petit Meslier grapes.

We have a choice of videos to watch, which include:

1. https://youtu.be/um10vnGXxw4 - The Wines of Champagne - GuildSomm (10:26)

2. https://youtu.be/IvPi0b9pAJc - How Should We Be Tasting Champagne? - Wine Folly (7:26)

4. https://youtu.be/MiD29-Mmzxg - How to Saber Champagne (With a Spoon) - Wine Folly (1:41)

Let us know what you’re drinking and eating, and, if possible, the varietal and the region. And, as always, tell us what’s going on in your life - what's happening with you, how you're feeling about things, updates, successes, challenges - as much or as little as you’re willing to disclose. We are in this together and we want you to share. And - thank goodness - we have wine!

Sante’!

Thursday Virtual Happy Hour: Burgundy

Location visible to members

This week we continue our exploration of French wine in the region of Burgundy. Here there are only two grape varieties to be found: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Any Gamay that was originally planted here was ripped out and moved southward to the region of Beaujolais. Chardonnay can be enjoyed in a crisp unoaked style from Chablis, a rich, highly oaked style from Cote de Beaune, or a middle style from Maconnais. Pinot Noir comes from Cote de Nuits (also known as the Cote d’Or).

We have a choice of videos to watch, which include:

1. - https://youtu.be/CNQsaRL5v1g - The Wines of Burgundy - GuildSomm (21:35)

2. https://youtu.be/w4sHH5tZyy4 - Burgundy - The Unknown Winecaster (12:04)

Let us know what you’re drinking and eating, and, if possible, the varietal and the region. And, as always, tell us what’s going on in your life - what's happening with you, how you're feeling about things, updates, successes, challenges - as much or as little as you’re willing to disclose. We are in this together and we want you to share. And - thank goodness - we have wine!

It's Back! The Annual Holiday Wine Group Party at Linda's

Westwing Mountain

Yes, we are BACK! Join us at our annual holiday party! The ugly hat contest is just part of the fun!

Here's what all is going on:
- We'll be celebrating the holidays for sure, by sharing good cheer, noshing, singing karaoke (or not!), sitting by the fire outside, or relaxing in the wine room.
- This is a pot luck, so bring a holiday dish AND beverage of your choice.
- Want to participate in the ugly hat contest? It's really simple. Wear or bring one! We'll have a contest and award for the most beautiful, the most "holiday", the most unique, and craziest/funniest.
- Participating in the ornament exchange is easy. Just bring an ornament of your choice, wrapped in a gift box or bag, so we can't see it, and we'll do a little exchanging. The most unique or crazy ornaments usually provide the most entertainment.

Mostly, this is a chance to enjoy each other, to welcome new members, to celebrate the friendships we've built and, of course.... to enjoy our WINE!
