The first of what I hope to be a monthly event, will take place in Fallon & Byrne, Exchequer Street, Dublin 2 on April 15th.
How will these montly wine tasting evenings work?
- We may switch between venues every month, suggestions most welcome
- Every month may (or may not) have a theme, again suggestions welcome
- We’ll open a couple of bottles and talk about wine and far more important stuff like the weather, girls, house prices and Web 2.0.
- It’s not about Sour Grapes, but rather the people who attend
Why organise wine tasting?
I like wine and others do too, why not meet up, taste it, talk shit about it?
In addition, many wine shops run wine tasting evenings – but you only get to taste what they want you to taste (and flog) so it’s somewhat limited.
If there’s a group of us, i.e. people power, we’ll be able to taste some nicer wines and get some discounts.
How do I sign up for a wine tasting evening?
Just show up, but I’d appreciate a comment below, just to get a sense of numbers and to book a tableau or two.
I’ll be sponsoring a thoroughly decent bottle. If there’s enough interest, Fallon & Byrne may even throw in a bottle and/or some discounts – I’ll give them a ring.
