Well the holiday season is upon us, with trees, lights, holiday music and dramatically increased traffic all around. We here at the Wine Guild are getting in the spirit as well, and are pleased to announce our that our last tasting of the year on Wednesday, December 15th will be a special celebration in honor of the year past and hopefully good things to come.
The focus of this tasting will be wines from the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy. As you may know, Board member Kevin Sidders spent Thanksgiving week touring this region tasting wines from many of the best producers that Barolo and Barbaresco have to offer. He will be taking us through a guided tour of the highlights from his trip, and we’ll be sampling some of the top selections available here in Virginia at a variety of price points.
In light of this being a Special Tasting and Celebration, we’re going to host the event at one of our favorite locations — l’etoile Restaurant. We have reserved a couple of their upstairs dining rooms for the event, and there will be light hors d’ourves to accompany the wines. We will need to charge a modest $15 per person for the event to help defray our costs, but we think it will be well worth the great food, lovely environment and warm hospitality.
We will also be making this our holiday Cheese event and will have a wide selection of cheese for you to taste and pick up for your holiday gatherings.
This is going to be a great evening learning about, discussing and drinking some exciting wines while celebrating the holiday season, so we really hope you can join us. And please feel free to pass this invitation along to other friends who might be interested in the Wine Guild — this would be a great event to show them what we’re all about and how much fun the Wine Guild of Charlottesville can be for those who’ve discovered us…
