We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – the best way to learn about wine is to try it! Every Saturday, from 2 to 5, we offer you the chance to taste, ask questions and learn about wine in a friendly and comfortable setting. We are not wine geeks, we are wine lovers and we love to share our enthusiasm and knowledge with you. Cork dorks please stay at home!
For Saturday’s tasting this week, the theme is “Going Down South”. We’ll be sampling out a nice assortment of wines from the southern hemisphere. From Australia to South Africa to South America, you’ll find that all of these regions provide ideal growing conditions for the vine and result in friendly, fruit packed wines for anyone.
