Wine Tasting

Samedi 23 Novembre 15h
chez Catherine Zahm

We ask you to bring a bottle of wine and / or a snack (cheese, grape, or appetizers). It would be great to have bottles of different prices, different varieties and from different countries. We will pack the bottle to hide the label and we will apply it a number. Participants will try to find the variety, country of origin, and give their opinion on the quality of the wine (1 á 10), and the price they would pay for that bottle. It will be interesting to know what our palate decide without using the label of the bottle.

So that we can organize this event, please RSVP before November 20 to Catherine or Pascale (see bulletin).
If you are interested in car-pooling, either as passenger or driver, please also tell Pascale.
