Wine Cellar Fillers

December 2017 is a down month for the Cellar Fillers Wine Activity. The next meeting will be in January or February, 2018, with time and place TBD. New hosts for the meeting are always welcome. Anyone with room enough to have ten or more thirsty Sirs for lunch is qualified to be the next host. Call if you would like to take it on.

The activity is open to members, applicants, and guests and is a great way to introduce a guest to SIR. Spouses and SO’s are welcome at our other five wine activities, such as All About Wine, Wine Finders I, II, and III, or Bargain Wines.

We meet at 11:30 AM for a simple lunch of sandwiches and fixin’s, then taste five whites and five reds. Occasionally we throw in a few blush wines. Our price point is $7.00-ish, but if tempted by a pretty label we will go a little higher. The cost of the events is usually around $10.00, depending on the wines selected and how many members attend. A report on the wines evaluated will be sent to the CFWA members shortly after the meeting, and will be available on the Branch 8 website home page. It will list the wines, their rankings, price and source.
