Taking the Snobbery Out of Wine Tasting - SOLD OUT

Join us at First Colony Winery on Wednesday, May 25th at 6 pm for an intimate primer on wine tasting, and tasteful wine snobbery. Our Assistant Winemaker, Gavin, will be on hand pouring a selection of First Colony wines past, present, and yet-to-be-bottled. He will explain the fundamentals of evaluating fine wines on the basis of appearance, aromatics, acid-tannin structure, flavor characteristics, and common wine flaws. Most importantly, he'll arm you with a wine vocabulary so obtuse and pedantic as to make a Parisian sommelier blanch. And there will be snacks!

Tickets are $20 for Wine Club members, and $25 to the general public. Space is limited, reservations required. Please call First Colony at (434) 979-7105 to reserve your space.
