The first VPR of the season will feature wines from four well known families of the wine world: Masi of Veneto; Colome of Argentina; Wente of California; and Perrin of the Rhone Valley. In addition to these wines there is a secondary feature of Rieslings plus the wines of the regular release. Come join us as we taste some of these wines as well as searching out some of the highly recommended wines that punch above their price point. In addition, we will try to fit in some other recommended wines from the release highlighting.
You can check out the release here.
We encourage you to register early as all members signed up by Saturday, September 22, 2018, 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 Director Rod Story.
