Recap on the Past

The Woman Who WhINE have been busy these last few months. Instead of visiting wineries we have opted to stay home during the winter weather and have instead enjoyed two wine tasting luncheons. They have been a great success, and a wonderful learning experience for all.

Our first luncheon in December was hosted by C.C. at her lovely home in Richland WA. Since Carol is a recent transplant from California and is a big chardonnay fan, we decided to do a chardonnay blind tasting. Everyone brought an undisclosed bottle of chardonnay.

Surprise, surprise, we had a three way tie for First Place. We voted using three pennies each to place in front of our favorite wines. As we sipped along and tasted the chardonnay's some of us took notes and then we voted. Quite simple, but oh so revealing especially when cost of our top three contenders was made known.
