Fifth Wednesday Tasting: Wainwright Tile & Stone and Aussie Wine!

We’ve got something special coming up for you this Wednesday! It’s rare when February has a fifth Wednesday…it has to happen in a leap year, of course, and we’re fortunate enough to have one this year and can bring to you a special tasting, something we haven’t done in a long time.

For this month’s fifth Wednesday, we’re taking you to Australia (figuratively, of course), and tasting some of wines from a couple of Oz’s top producers. We’ll be pouring a couple of whites, then diving headlong into reds; the lineup includes wines from renowned producers Mollydooker (a sought-after producer of fabulous reds) and Penfolds, (maker of one of the world’s greatest wines, The Grange.) We will not be tasting The Grange, obviously; I didn’t think we could stomach a tasting fee of $50 per person for a tasting portion. Having said that, if you get the chance to try some, do it. Audrey and I went to a Penfolds dinner at Keswick where they served some a couple of years ago and were blown away!

The Whiskey Jar will be providing light appetizers, and we’ll be spotlighting the business of one of our members, Wayne Murphy of Wainwright Tile & Stone, who has graciously offered his store to host this tasting.

So, to recap:

  1. Knockout wines from stellar Australia producers, including one that has been among Wine Spectator’s top 10 wines in recent multiple vintages;
  2. Hors d’oeuvres from The Whiskey Jar; and
  3. A new venue and the chance to explore a local business owned and operated by one of our members. (Wainwright Tile & Stone, 711 Preston Avenue)

All for the modest charge of $20 per person.

Please RSVP as soon you can, so we can confirm that we have enough wine to go around.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    Hi John we will have midweek and Friday night evnets now and then, for instance last night some of us met up at Anchor Brewing for a meet and greet that SFHG members were invited to. Make sure you’re on the mailing list to find out what we’re up to and join up via the paypal link on the Join the SFHG page if you want invites to everything (many evnets are limited to members by virtue of their smaller size).
