STUDY GROUPS 2019-2020

Bacchae

At our November 11 meeting, we met at Myra Jones’ house and tasted a New York wine from the Finger Lakes (a Gruner Veltliner from the Konstantin D Frank and Sons winery) and a Lehigh Valley wine (Cabernet Sauvignon from Clover Hill Vineyards and Winery). Gruner Veltliner is a wine we haven’t evaluated very often, so we were delighted to find this. It was delicious! The cabernet came highly recommended by a Fine Wines and Spirits Store employee and we enjoyed that one, too. We rounded out our meeting with a scrumptious light dinner and dessert provided by Myra and co-hostess JoAnn Kelly. There is no December meeting. Our next meeting is on January 13 at 7:00 PM on Zoom. Rita Bergstrom will serve as hostess with Amy Fields as co-hostess. Rita arranged to have a guest sommelier lead our tasting and evaluation.

This year we are focusing on wines from PA and NY.
