Wine Tasting Event in May

No it isn’t a spelling mistake! It is the newly founded American Women’s Wine Club special interest group. Our last meeting was the California Wine Festival in Kødbyen. We were eight tasters, enjoying the large variety of CA wines available to sample and purchase at reduced prices for the festival. There was also grill food and many declared the potato salad the best they ever tasted. Great wines, food and sunshine, what more could you wish for...

We decided to share some of our favorite wine picks:
Rabbit Ridge Winery was a favorite choice for many of their wines on offer, avg price 80 kr.
Black Stallion’s  Chardonnay, 265 kr.  Liberty School’s Chardonnay.  Sincere Red, Napa Pinot Noir, which is a 6 star wine at 150 kr.

Informal wine tasting of selective Irma’s wines will be at the AWC June 1st Mumbai Murmurs reception.

The next AWWC event is on Wednesday, June 21 at 16:00 – 20:00 where American Wine will be pouring 16 -20 sparkling wines and the famous Charles Smith, from Washington State will be there. I have had the pleasure of tasting these wines and can highly recommend them.  It will be hosted by Husted Vin, in Kødbyen, Kbh V.  The cost will be 250 kr. which includes grill food.

Space is limited; as they are reducing the numbers of attendees.  So you need to RSVP and pay to AWC’s bank account without delay if you want to attend. RSVP to awcbazaar@gmail.com including your name and a mobile tel. number.
