Saturday April 8
Meet and greet begins at 7 p.m. and the official tasting starts promptly at 7:30 p.m.
Hosted by Jennifer Galloway
Only six spots left! Reserve yours today by emailing Jack.P.Hagler@iCloud.com.
April’s tasting will be “A Taste From Your Happy Place.” Bring a wine that reminds you of a great place you visited or a time in your life. Feel free to bring a memorabilia to show-and-tell with your wine and food pairing. Perhaps dress in the attire of your happy place. “Place” could mean location or state-of-mind — whatever made/makes you happy. This tasting’s theme is open to wide interpretation, but please no wine from your under-age drinking days.
Here’s how it works: each individual, couple or pair of neighbors brings a bottle of wine and a bite to eat that complements their wine. As the night progresses, everyone will introduce themselves, their wine and their food. We’ll eat and drink one wine and one food item at a time until we’re all full and happy!
What type of wine? Winos range from novice to aficionado wine drinkers. There is absolutely no snobbery. Bring something special or something you simply found at the store. On any given night, there’s a wide range of wines including whites, reds, sparkling wines and dessert wines.
What type of food? Whatever you like. While some people take the opportunity to flex their kitchen skills, it’s perfectly fine to bring something simply-prepared or even store-bought. Don’t let the cooking keep you away. Just have fun with it!
Here are some tips:
* Bring enough food for at least 24 tastes
* If your food requires a utensil, plate or toothpick to serve, you must bring these items
* You can warm your dish in the oven or microwave, but do not plan to cook your dish at the host’s home
Space is limited to 24 people, so be sure to sign up early by emailing Jack Hagler at Jack.P.Hagler@iCloud.com with the name(s) and email address(es) of who will be attending. If you know what varietal of wine you will be bringing, include that in your email.
Residents of Winnetka Heights Historic District and their guest are given first priority. Non-WHHD residents will be placed on a wait list and accommodated if space allows.
If you have any questions, email Jack at Jack.P.Hagler@iCloud.com or call him directly at 817.946.8609. We look forward to seeing you on April 8!
Thank you Jennifer for hosting!
