It’s probably not too difficult to know what this event is about, and these tastings have been popular in the past because they are social as well as educational. You will experience new wines and meet new wine appreciating friends—a perfect combination! Board members will choose a wine to present to you, offering it for your enjoyment and naming its grapes, describing its attributes and telling you a little more than just “where it comes from!” What that means is that the choices will be really good, having been assessed by more than one and often several knowledgeable folks and all this while keeping an eye on the budget.
These wines are being selected by our Board members, most of whom have a long history of enjoying, tasting, studying, and presenting wines – so it will be a relaxed atmosphere accompanied with fresh bread, fruit and cheese during the event. This is a fine event for guests and newcomers to the world of wine, so feel free to invite your friends and family to attend. We will list the eight chosen wines in the next issue of the Newsletter, but you shouldn’t wait until then to guarantee a seat or two (or 3!!) The tasting will take place at 7:00 pm on Friday, November 8, 2019 at the Hilton Harrisburg. Park in the garage and be sure to get your discounted parking as an added bonus.
