What we're about

Westchester Wine Enthusiasts is an amateur wine tasting association that endeavors to create a fun and educational environment absent of wine snobbery and collectors' one-upmanship. Although we have sommeliers, distributors, and vendors participate, we do so simply for the love of wine.

As Michael Broadbent once said, "To some, tasting is work, tasting is learning; tasting adds immeasurably to understanding, and understanding to deeper enjoyment."

Skeptical of hype, appreciative of the craft, and mindful of our palate, we hope you will join us at our next event.

The dues allow me to do a few things: purchase occasional special bottles for the group; allow the group to have access to other organizations that require dues; purchase name tags and other supplies. It will allow you to participate at least once without purchasing a bottle.

Bordeaux and Bordeaux Blends tasting

St. Bartholomew's Church

$10.00

Tonights theme begins with French Wines from Bordeaux. You will learn to read a French Label and some basics in tasting. You bring a bottle of wine + a modest appetizer. In order of preference: 2009, 2005, 2010, 2000, 2015, 2016, 2014. You may also offer Clarets, Bordeaux Blends from the Southwest of France or any place else in the world. Blends should be Cabernet / Merlot / Cab Franc. If you have, however, a illustrious single grape Cab, Merlot, or even Malbec, you'd like to compare we won't say "NO." We say "yes." RSVP what wine you are bringing and from what year. Other years are acceptable from France, but let's strive for the above. The Appetizer: these can be olives, cheese, and crackers, pate, or cold cuts. We encourage you to combine forces. It is better to get a single bottle at $25 plus some prosciutto with a friend rather than two $15 dollar bottles. First Timers, $5 for the glass. Suggested donation for the space, and a sparkler, is $10. If you don't want to worry about a thing, bring $25. I'll buy the wine and some pizza for the group. This has sometimes led to us trying wines that may cost more than $100 in a wine store, and we get some very good pizza. See you in February.

California Red Dreaming

St. Bartholomew's Church

$10.00

California Red Dreaming. Cabernet, Merlot, Zinfandel, etc. Napa, Sonoma. Oh why not just do the West Coast. Let's compare Washington, Oregon and California. Find an unusual grape if you'd like. From California. Or Washington or Oregon. You bring a bottle of wine + a modest appetizer. The Appetizer: these can be olives, cheese, and crackers, pate, or cold cuts.
