I love attending these tastings! What better way to taste through a bunch of wine in a few hours among many other great wine lovers. Whether you’re looking for a big bold and velvety red wine for holiday dinner or a lovely fresh white wine for a starter, even sparkling wines make their showing now. You’re sure to find some gems at a few of these! Please report back to tell me what you tasted that moved you to purchase.
