It’s hot as Hades here at the Wine Club this week, so I would suggest we meet in the west dining room, the one with the terrace out to the grape arbor and pool – that way if anyone wants a dip in the pool they can just wander out through one of the three sets of French doors. Have a seat around the table; help yourself to the grapes, baguettes, and cheese.
This week our sommelier is . . . . :: drum roll :: . . . Swallowed My Cellphone! SmC, you’ll have to barf that cellphone back up to make room for the tasty wine you’ll be trying and recommending.
Just to remind any lurkers or newbies, SmC as sommelier has a week to pick a wine and post it (hopefully one that is pretty widely obtainable) and then starting next Thursday we all will chime in to praise or damn the selection. Wine club is open to everyone, provided you are legal to drink or willing to lie about that if asked. We welcome new members at any time.
Last week’s thread is here. Thanks to John Mace for putting that thread up while I was out of town.
