Spring Fling Taste and Play-Next week

If you were following in January, you may already be familiar with the idea behind “Taste and Play.”  Basically, it is an excuse for my Austin SAHM friends and I to get together and try a new wine.  We taste, talk, and take notes on the wines.  Those that choose to, comment on the wines on the blog.  We invite you to join us wherever you are in a “virtual tasting.”  Next week, we will have the Spring Fling Tasting. I have selected the following wines.

2010 McPherson Viognier, TX  ($12-14)

2010 Acquagiusta Rosato, Italy ($15)

2011 Castillo Perelada Garnatxa Blanca, Spain ($12)

If you are not able to find them in a store near you, choose something similar. You can share your finds with us as well. Our tasting party will be Wednesday, but get your friends together whenever you have a chance and let us know what you thought.  Reviews will be posted shortly after our tasting.

Wine lover. Oenophile. Wanna-be-sommelier. Mom. Mommy. MA-MAAAAA!!!!!! Grocery shopper, budding nutritionist, dish scrubber, meat cutter. My love of wine started in my mid-twenties. I have no formal training, just a decent palatte and a desire to learn. And I am pretty good in the kitchen. The more I learn, the greater the desire to educate myself through articles, blogs, travel, and surrounding myself with others who like to discuss wine. When things calm down (what's that?) in my life, I may choose a formal education in the arena, but for now, I will taste, share, and taste some more. My descriptors may or may not be "correct." My pairings may wow, surprise, or may not "work." But, the best learning is through trial and error, right? Especially when the "trial" means drinking more wine. So, if you are up for a little wisdom about wine, and a lot of wine-induced wisdom, come along for the ride
