Description

Join us at our next Metropolis Wine Club at our new home!

ReVitalize STL is excited to announce that we have moved to a new home! Last month we moved our headquarters into the new south city co-working space NexCore! So join us as we open our house to you and we celebrate our new space. Plus you get to check out NexCore and all it has to offer.

Location Notes:

Inspired by the idea that co-working means more than just sharing space, Nexcore is a community-driven center for entrepreneurial collaboration. With an encouraging team environment, professional business coaching services, and a roster of invaluable amenities, Nexcore helps small businesses and freelancers fulfill their dreams.

At Nexcore, community members can share energy and ideas, form new connections, and gain access to business resources that make co-working as exciting and advantageous as possible.

Wine Program for the evening:

Italy has Prosecco, Spain has Cava and, of course, France would never let you forget about its Champagne. But the United States knows how to sparkle, too! What better way to celebrate our new home than with sparkling wine. So this month we are designing our evening around sparkling wine made in the USA.

Sparkling wine is a wine with significant levels of carbon dioxide in it, making it fizzy. The best known example of a sparkling wine is champagne, which is exclusively produced in the Champagne region of France. Usually sparkling wine is white or rosé, but there are examples of red sparkling wines out there. The sweetness of sparkling wine can range from very dry "brut" styles to sweeter "doux" varieties (from the French words for 'raw' and 'sweet', respectively).

So grab a bottle of your favorite sparkling wine made in the USA and join us as we toast to our new home.

If unable to bring wine, please bring food to taste and pair with the wine to enhance the program.

Wine suggestions:

Any sparkling wine made in the USA.

Food suggestions:

Sparkling wines and food are a fantastic pairing. And yet, you do not have to spend a fortune on your wine to discover a great pairing. Many sparkling wines are friendly for any budget and you will be surprised how a little spritz livens up many foods. In general, most sparkling wine pairings can follow the suggestions for Champagne. Consider giving some of these pairings a try if you are bringing food for the evening:

  • Triple cream (Brie-style) cheese or sweet bread and mascarpone cheese

  • Butter cream sauce or even buttered popcorn

  • Shrimp and shellfish, smoked salmon, caviar, fried calamari, and oysters

  • Salami, veggies, stuffed mushrooms, egg dishes, foie gras

  • Fruit-based desserts such as tarts, crepes, and any butttered or honeyed dessert

  • Shortbread cookies are a really fun (and surprising) pairing combo because the acidity in wine cuts through the rich butter of the cookie.

Note: We plan to open only wines that fit into the program. Any wines that are outside of the recommendation will be used for future tastings, classes or events.

Volunteers:

We could use several volunteers to check people in, set up, clean up, and pour wine. It's a great way to meet everyone at the event. If you would like one of these opportunities, and can get there at 5:30 pm, contact us at wineclub@rvstl.org ASAP.

Parking:

Parking at NexCore is on street and is very plentiful plus it is free!

Wine Club Rules:

  1. Please reserve a ticket that identifies if you will be bringing a bottle of wine or a plate of food to share.

  2. You may only sign up for yourself and one guest max. Other friends need to sign up separately. You will be asked to give you and your guest's first and last name and e-mail addresses on the sign-up page.

  3. We prefer finger foods, but if your food needs need utensils or platters, bring them. Please do not bring "bagged" snacks such as pretzels or potato chips without bringing a vessel to put them in.

  5. Please bring wine pre-chilled and ready to drink.

  6. 21 years old and older only.
