June 3, 2009 -- California Stand Off Wine Tasting
Don't be standoffish...Our Wednesday Wine Tasting theme for June is called a Stand Off Wine Tasting. A Stand Off tasting is when you taste the same varietal of wine from different regions. This type of tasting allows you to compare and contrast varietals from different areas of a wine producing region, state, country, or from around the world. We're starting close to home with a California Stand Off Tasting. For example, you'll taste a Chardonnay from Monterey, one from Sonoma, and one from Mendocino. You'll taste a Merlot from Napa, one from Santa Barbara, and one from the Central Coast.
As always, this event is a great way to sample wines, socialize, and have a great time. Our tastings aren't "stuffy" or "snobbish" in any way. You will enjoy yourself whether you are a wine novice or a wine expert.
Guest Pourers will be Georgene and Vidal Falcon, proprietors of The Grice-Fearing Bed & Breakfast.
Cost is $15 per person and includes light appetizers, samplings from six different wines, tasting notes, and a fun evening. RSVP Requested (252-335-1163).
