Vintages Pre-Release Tasting—New World Groundbreakers and Portugal—Have your Say!

Thursday, September 25, 2014 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
Vendange Institute 440 Albert Street, Suite C108

Our first Vintages Pre-Release (VPR) tasting of the new season features both new world groundbreakers and wines from Portugal. Join Guild Director Rod Story in exploring some of the wines from this release. Portuguese wines provide exceptional value and are very food friendly. It will be interesting to see what wines will be in the release. The plan is to have approximately four Portuguese wines, four new world groundbreakers and another four or so from the rest of the release.

We encourage you to register early as all members signed up by Saturday, September 20, 2014, 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.
