The last Vintages release of October is featuring wines of Bordeaux. This area not only produces very expensive wines, but also wines that provide incredible value. The plan is to taste some of the high end wines as well as searching out some of the highly recommended wines that punch above their price point. In addition, we will have a discussion of ways to find good values from the region by examining different years, producers and locations.
We encourage you to register early as all members signed up by Saturday, October 22, 2016, will be invited to suggest a few of their choices from the release. We will consider the requests as we make the final selection, particularly looking at popular items based on multiple responses along with any intriguing thematic suggestions.
The VPR is an opportunity to “try before you buy” a number of wines to be released by Vintages on the following Saturday. Taste some selected, expensive, highly reputed wines that might not cross your palate otherwise and also have the chance to discover wines offering exceptional price/quality ratios and affordable lesser-known premium quality products that are well-made bargains. The tasting will be lead by Guild President Bill Ellis, a frequent visitor to the region.
