Cabernet Sauvignon Blind Wine Tasting – Aug 28 @ 5:30

We’re doing a blind tasting of various Cabernet Sauvignons to help recognize the true character of the grape as well as the more subtle influences of the terroir from which each wine originates

With blind tasting we’ll remove any prejudice we may have for any given region and allow the wine to sing its song on our palate. We definitely will sample wines from a couple of obvious areas, like Napa and a few lesser known areas also. There will be sensory triggers to help identify various subtleties in the wine and assist both the experienced and novice wine connoisseur.

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. Please call 828-414-9111 (toll free at 866-713-9437 for our out of town guests)

    As a frequent holder of blind wine tasting events, I hope you are using bagged wine’s environmental friendly blind wine tasting kit. They are usable and are the best I have found. I believe amazon sells them.

      We are actually using the bags pictured above. They are made from cloth and we do reuse them so as to keep our landfill waste down.

    A good story

    GK Chesterton: “The poets have been mysteriously silent on the subject of cheese.”

    Voila: http://www.tastingtoeternity.com. This book is a poetic view of 30 of the best loved French cheeses with an additional two odes to cheese. Recipes, wine pairing, three short stories and an educational section complete the book.

    From a hectic life on Wall Street to the peace and glories of the French countryside lead me to be the co-founder of http://www.fromages.com. Ten years later with the words of Pierre Androuet hammering on my brain:

    “Cheese is the soul of the soil. It is the purest and most romantic link between humans and the earth.”

    I took pen and paper; many reams later with the midnight oil burning Tasting to Eternity was born and self published.

    I believe cheese and wine lovers should be told about this publication.
