WINE TASTING JULY 24
Tickets are still available for our upcoming wine tasting on Saturday July 24th. For vaccinated people only it will be at a private home in Ocean View. The presenter, Paul Cudone is both a friend of RD38, and a semi-retired wine consultant with over 40 years of experience in the industry.
This tasting will explore today’s most prominent grape varieties - Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, and Chardonnay. Paul will cover how to evaluate a wine for its overall quality through taste and smell. He’ll also cover how to appropriately use terms to describe wines, such as floral, fruity, full-bodied, medium-bodied, elegance, finesse, nutty, and bold.
A total of 10 tickets will be sold, each at $50. They must be purchased through Eventbrite at this link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/157781176747. Expect this to be both a fun and informative event. There will be snacks and dessert, and a door prize (a Bottle of Felsina 2007 Vin Santo Del Chianti Classico -a 94+ points wine with an estimated Retail Value $45- $50).
