9/29 First Vine tasting at Washington Wine and Cheese

First Vine has been invited to participate in a tasting on Tuesday, September 29 by Washington Wine and Cheese.  It has been around for 40 years, and it’s the oldest continuing wine-tasting organization of its kind in the entire U.S.  Who knew?  They meet weekly more or less during the school year.  Each week has a different theme, with a short talk introducing the wines, and then it’s on to the tasting — five wines to try, some cheeses to sample, lots of opportunity for discussion.  I’ll be talking about our Southern Rhône producers and will present five wines all made within a 10 km radius of one another, but still different in character.

The group meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:45 at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church at 4700 Whitehaven Pky NW, between Foxhall Road and Macarthur Blvd.  There’s an admission fee of $20 or $25 dollars, depending on the wines and cheeses being offered that week.  There are usually anywhere from 60 to 80 people there, many of them regulars, and a good time is definitely had by all.  So come by and check it out — hope to see you there!
