    Wine Club continues to be held via ZOOM on the 3rd Thursday of the month at 4 p.m. during terms so that friends from around the country can join us for the fun. Register for this club if you want to be notified with reminders and notes about the wine tastings each month. Join every monthly session or just join one, the participants in this group are laid back and always willing to raise a glass in good cheer. Before each monthly online meeting, you will receive a list of wines that will be tasted so you can purchase and have them on hand for the Club's online tasting. 

    Thursday, Mar 16 – (Zoom) Tuscans and Super Tuscans. What do we mean when we talk about Tuscan wines? How are they made? What makes something a super Tuscan?

    Thursday, April 20 – (At Bond Street Wines) Trends in wine: organic, biodynamic and sustainable wines, unexpected origins, orange wine. Jeff House will teach us about environmentally friendly practices and what effect they have on the wines, and address some of the trends that he has identified in wine-landia.

    (Attention – the 2nd Thursday of May) Thursday, May 11 – (Zoom) The other side of the mountain. All wine is not produced in an AVA or an Appelation d’Origine Contrôlée, or a Denominazione di Origine Controllata but there are wines that are grown either literally right next door to these more valued regions. We propose to taste a few wines that are grown “on the other side of the mountain” or “right next door” to these star regions to appreciate quality, difference, and similarity in taste and price.
