Wines and Steins

 Fostering home wine and beer making and the art of tastings

Monthly Membership Meeting - March 1, 2019

  • American Legion Hall - Templeton

Congratulations to our Wine Game Night winners at February’s Meeting!

Johnna DeBellis took first place with the highest number of correct responses to 30 questions in the Wine Quiz.  Eight people correctly identified one of the three varietals in a  blind tasting.  Mary Andrews was selected as the winner by a drawing.  Mike Ferree calculated the number of corks in a container with a mathematical formula, but Mike Victorino came closer to the proper number with his educated guess.

…and speaking of blind tastings, you can test your taste buds at our

March 1 meeting


We will have tables set up for these varietals:  Viognier, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Syrah, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Here's how it works:  

  Select the varietal you are interested in tasting (link below).
  Bring a bottle of that wine to the meeting. *
  We'll have people at the meeting to disguise each bottle, then they will be placed at a table where you will join others to taste and evaluate each wine. 
  Be ready to pick your favorite and explain why it is superior to the others at the table. There are lots of surprised looks when the label is revealed – sometimes the lowest cost bottle is preferred over the higher-end bottles.      

* If a couple want to sit at the same table to taste the same varietal bring only one bottle of wine.  

There will be no potluck dinner at this meeting - instead please bring a hearty appetizer and perhaps a bottle of wine to share.

We’ll meet at the American Legion Hall, starting at 6 PM.  Click here for the meeting Address, Agenda,  and What to Bring.

Thanks in advance to our hosts Mike and Cat Victorino and co-hosts Patricia Watters and Richard Lashbrook.

Guests are welcome!
