Winnekta Heights Winos Are Back; Neighborhood Wine Tasting Set for June 2

Join us for a neighborhood wine tasting hosted by Candace and Steve Bossay on Saturday, June 2.  The Bossays now live at 322 S. Rosemont now.  The evening begins at 7 pm for a brief meet and greet, then the official tasting starts promptly at 7:30.

Please rsvp in the forum if you plan on attending and if you know what varietal of wine you will be bringing, post that as well. Remember, space is limited. The wine tasting is best with 24 guests, although 1 or 2 more may squeeze in. So, sign up early, as the tastings often become “fully subscribed”. Here’s how it works. Each couple, or pair of neighbors who have teamed up, brings a bottle of wine and a bite to eat that complements the wine. As the night progresses, you will introduce yourselves, your wine and your food and we eat and drink one wine and one food item at a time until we are all full and happy! It is perfectly acceptable to come alone with your wine and food, more wine for the rest of us.

What type of wine? Anything works. Winos range from aficionados to novice wine drinkers. There is no snobbery. Bring something special or something you just found at the store. While we all enjoy tasting the nice stuff, we also appreciate finding new inexpensive and accessible wines. On any given night, there is a wide range of wines, including whites, reds, sparkling wines, and dessert wines.

What type of food? Again, whatever you like! While some people take the opportunity to flex their kitchen skills, it is perfectly fine to bring something store bought or simply prepared at home. Don’t let the cooking keep you away. Just have fun with it. Some tips: Bring enough for about 24 tastes. If your food requires a utensil, plate or toothpick to serve, bring what you need (don’t count on the host having enough utensils or plates). Also, don’t count on the host for any special equipment. You should be able to warm your dish in the oven or microwave, but because of the number of dishes, do not plan to cook your dish at the host’s home.

If you have any questions you can email b.a.roy@sbcglobal.net for more information or call Barbara directly at 214.942.4043. We hope to see you all on the 2nd!
