Here is the list of wines I will taste with a retail value from Wired for Wine. You can expect to pay in this price range. Download the list below.
You can order all the wines from Wired for Wine through my site (please use a google chrome browser) or find them locally in your neighborhood wine sellers to join me November 5th when signing up for this event. The total cost of the wines are collectively ~$150 (essentially on average $25 per bottle), Plus free shipping is also offered on six bottles in the US from Wired for Wine. So, the wines are relatively reasonable when shared across a group or even for a date night, plus you’ll have plenty left over and we always discuss options for Sunday brunch too.
Don't let the volume of wine discourage a small group - you do not need all six wines to participate or even the exact wines, you can find a similar wine (ask your local wine store – you have the list). Or some participants order all six and and love to have the notes and decide to open some bottles during the event and save others for different occassions since you will know how to pair them well.
So what are you waiting for? Sign up and reserve your spot (remember spots can be shared per household just like the wine) at just $40 per access As the date approaches everyone signed up will receive and email with the presentation on the wines, a list of prepared tastings to have on hand to sample with the wines, and other important details for the zoom call. I’ll also remind you of little things to make sure you put a little luxury on your trip to Italy with me through wine.
See you November 5th.
