Two of the most important grapes in the world.

Grenache and Garnacha: Spicy. Berry-flavored. Pungent. Chateauneuf du pape and Prioriat.

Syrah and Shiraz: Blackberry and pepper. Grown in the northern Rhone; Australia and South Africa.

Sometimes they're even blended with Mourvedre, also called Mataro.

We'll compare and see if you can guess.

What do you do? Well the sparkling wine and the cleanup is $5. but plan on bringing a $15-$25 wine and an appetizer. There will be a stove for you to cook. Our chef, John Watkins, couldn't be her this time.

You can ask me to purchase an appetizer and I will do so for $10, which means prosciutto, olives, figs and really awesome cheese.

Share a bottle with a friend and pay more.

OR spend $30 on food instead.

Please RSVP telling me what you are bringing. You should expect to spend at least $30, but if you'd prefer, I can do the purchasing for you. If you want me to buy your contribution to the wine and appetizers, please tell me by tomorrow at 3pm.

I look forward to seeing you.
