Event description

Description

This year’s annual wine tasting is an exploration of wines of the world. We will taste and evaluate 3 examples of wine from 7 different countries, both white and red. We will look at the history of wine for each of these countries. We will also cover a favorite topic: How to select wine in stores and whether those wine critic’s point scores are really that valuable.

Finger foods and lunch will be provided. Tasting sheets and pens will also be provided so you can make your own notes. We will taste at least 21 wines in one ounce pours (in flights of three) in a sit-down format. The amount of wine served per person comes to more than 3/4 bottle, so be careful regarding your consumption. The wines will be unveiled after each flight, with prices, and where they were purchased. In addition, that information will be handed out at the conclusion of the tasting.

The concept, which never goes according to plan, is to arrive around 11 AM and start with a sparkling wine (maybe a Cava). There is parking for more than 100 cars on the grounds. We hope to have a few new cars displayed in the driveway circle (courtesy of Porsche Southpoint, Durham) and sparkling wine will be served at that location (weather permitting). You are welcome to view the cars and walk around the grounds. The formal tasting will start around 11:30 AM under a large tent.

You are strongly encouraged to stay around when the tasting is completed. At the end of the tasting we will have a raffle of baskets of special wine and goodies. Proceeds from the raffle will go to charity. There will also be water, lemonade, tea, and coffee to help with important rehydration.

Volunteers are needed to assist in the activities (over 30). They will not be excluded from the tasting.
