Strange wines, newer friends – from the wine virgin

Hey wine fans! Last friday’s event was Strange Wines, Newer Friends. This was probably one of the most enjoyable events we have had. The concept of the evening was to taste wines made from strange or unusual grapes and regions of the world. When I think of wines, I think of regions of the world such as South America, California, France, etc. I was very surprised to learn of some of the locations of the wines we were sampling – Greece, Hungary, South Africa, etc.

I enjoyed nearly all of these wines and found each one to be unique, which was the idea. All of them had tastes like I have never had in wines before – although I am still new to wines. As usual, I learned a lot from the people attending. It was also interesting to see that some of the attendees did not seem to know a lot about wine. It was a really good experience to learn about some unusual wines with people who were also new to wine tasting.

As the week goes on, I’m going to discuss what I thought about each wine and what I smelled and tasted. Please visit the blog later this week because some of these wines were absolutely amazing! It’s unfortunate that these wines are perceived as strange, because these are wines that everybody should have the opportunity to try.

Great Wines That Won’t Break The Budget Fri Feb 5, 5:30 pm

Anyone should be able to find a great bottle for $50 or $100 – but how do you go about finding really good wines when you want something for everyday.  Are there certain countries or regions to look for?  Certain types of grapes?

The wines we’re tasting tonight have been carefully selected to showcase excellently drinking wines from all over, wines that will stand up to the higher priced bottles, but at an average price of only $10-15.

Most importantly, we will enjoy great wine with the company of great friends.

Advanced reservations are always suggested – $15 advance purchase or $20 at the door on a space available basis. $9 for students. Please call 828-414-9111 (toll free at 866-713-9437 for our out of town guests)
