Branch 8

Make Friends for Life

Wine Enthusiasts

Activity Chairman:  Jack Waddell,  chairman: assistant chairman TBD

Meeting Dates and Times:  Second Wednesday of  ODD numbered months at 6 pm..

Meeting Location: Rotating at member homes

Activity Description:  Blind tasting event for wines in the $12 – 20 range. The expectation is that attendance will primarily be couples, although singles are heartily welcomed. Each member will take his turn as a host. In this  group in order to insure an appropriate range of price selections and to avoid possible duplication , the host will select the varietal to be tasted and  purchase the wine  to be reimbursed by members  at the time of the tasting. The Host will also make a brief presentation about the varietal  he has chosen  (see Wikipedia)  Each couple  or single attending  other than the host will  bring their own wine glass  and a substantial appetizer (more so than chips and dip) as this will be in  lieu of dinner . In  all other respects the format will  be  the same as   Winefinders 1-3 .   Host will provide  a modest dessert and coffee.

We will need a minimum of  10 participants to begin and have a goal of 12-16.

Members of other wine finders or cellar fillers groups are  welcome to attend. If a large number of members are interested we will  have a substitution roster.

Attend more than twice  and you must   expect to be a Host.   If there is sufficient interest the first meeting  will be held at the home of Jack Waddell in February 2015

Activity Costs: between $12 – 20  per couple depending on the mix of wines selected by the host + your cost of appetizer

Participation:  Branch members, spouses/significant others and applicants for membership.

Other:  For more details  or to sign up, stop by our table  at the January luncheon or give a call (935 932 5664)   or email  (jwaddell@astound.net  to Jack Waddell
