Port & Dessert Wine Tasting (February 2011)

On Saturday, February 19, 2011, Lorynn & Greg hosted a Port & Dessert Wine Tasting.  They provided the drinks and snacks with a small donation from the 16 attendees.

The overall favorite was:
California Orange Muscat Wine – $9.99 – With the sweet, heady perfume of orange blossom and stone fruit, it’s hard to understand why this is such an obscure variety.  There are less than 200 acres of Orange Muscat throughout California.  The French call it La Fleur d’Orange – the orange blossom – it’s also grown in Italy and Australia and for obvious reasons – who can resist such a gorgeous fragrance and soft, fruity flavors?  Pairs well with Fresh Fruit.

Thanks again to Lorynn & Greg for hosting!

Bourbon Tasting (August 2010)

On Saturday, August 14, 2010, Justin & Ann (thanks again) who moved here from Kentucky hosted a Bourbon Tasting!

They provided the drinks and snacks, each with a bourbon theme or twist, with a small donation from each attendee.  Those who did not care for bourbon brought along their own beverage of choice, but still socialized and had a wonderful time!  Over 20 people in attendance.

Thanks again to Justin & Ann for hosting!

Wine Social (May 2010)

For the fourth event, attendees brought wines that were made in Texas!

On Saturday, May 1, 2010, Mark & Karen hosted the Texas Style Wine & Socializing event.  10 couples in attendance broke into two groups each tasting the red and white wines before rating them solely on taste.

The winners went home with a nice party gift from the hosts (great job)!

Thanks again to Mark & Karen for hosting!

Beer Tasting (September 2009)

On Saturday, September 19, 2009, Srikala & Vijay put a new twist on our third event — beer tasting!  First, we blind tasted four domestic beers (and were pleasantly surprised by our “guesses”) and then we just enjoyed a variety of beers the hosts had picked up.

The best turn out yet we had over 25 people! Hope you can join us at a future event.

Thanks again to Srikala & Vijay for hosting!  Great job guys!
