Wine Samplers I 2016-2017
Co-Chairs: Suzanne Collins 583-3132
Nancy Brandt 404-7417
Meetings: 1st Friday, academic year, 5:00 to 7:00 pm Exceptions for holidays.
Open to new members: While this group has reached our maximum capacity of 20, we would be quite willing to mentor others who wish to begin a Wine Samplers III group. Contact a co-chair for information. Couples or singles are welcome.
Participation Fee: One bottle of the selected wine of the month plus an appetizer that complements the wine.
Wine Samplers taste and compare a different kind of wine or cider each month. Wines are blind tasted and scored, and then the results are shared. Each couple is expected to host each year, and singles host every other year. The group has a maximum of 20 people so all can easily fit in most homes. The hosting person/couple selects the type of wine to be served that month. Hosts also provide plates, napkins and water. Members bring a bottle of the selected wine, their own wine glasses and a food that complements the wine. They also share information about the particular wine they brought such as country/state of origin, grapes included, unique climate of the winery, price, etc.
