A great opportunity to try a variety of wines, Old World and New World. The Gewurztraminer white in the blind tasting was superb, as was the Viognier. A really fun day filled with new ideas and wine facts.
And so to next weekend when Hubby and I present the Grande Finale in our 100 Wine Challenge - cheers !!
