May 5, 2010 -- April Showers Bring May Flowers Wine Tasting

April showers bring May flowers, according to the happy spring poem. It certainly is the case with our wine tasting theme this month! We will be featuring floral-themed wines at our May 5th tasting (a Cinco de Mayo theme would have been way too predictable, don't you think?). Wines in our selection all have a floral label of some sort. We will taste two wines from the Chilean Killer Bee winery (Sauvignon Blanc and Malbec); two from the California Summerland portfolio of wines (Chardonnay and Vintners Select Pinot Noir); and German Bloom Gewurtztraminer and Red Petals Blend.
Our appetizer menu includes a raspberry/cheese spread with crackers, tomato and olive bruschetta, baked pimento cheese with pecans, mini hammy sandwiches with brown sugar and mustard sauce, and pulled pork with strawberry BBQ sauce.
A flower will be presented to every attendee while they last (while the flowers last, not the attendees). Tasting from 6-7:30 pm; RSVP please (so we know how much food to prep); $15 per person (includes wine, appetizers, printed tasting notes). 252-335-1163, http://www.citywine.blogspot.com/
