Tasting Wine with the Newcomers

 Published on: Tuesday, April 19, 2011

This past Friday, I was invited to do a wine tasting with the Newcomer’s Club of St. John’s. The event was in support of funding for Ronald McDonald House in Newfoundland. I just wanted to take this opportunity to thanks the Newcomer’s Club for inviting me to part of their event. I think we tasted some quality wines, tasted some great food and it appears that overall, the event was a success. Thanks to everyone who participated as well as those who donated some excellent prizes. Finally, to Carol Masuda who put the whole thing together; Great Job Carol! Lets do it again next year. And by the way, based on what was purchased afterwards, it appears the wine of the night was Tesch Deep Blue!

For those who were in attendance, here is a review of the wines we tasted:

– Cuvee Catharine Sparkling Wine – Canada (Niagara Region)
– Tesch Unplugged Riesling – Germany (Nahe Region)
– E. Guigal Cote du Rhone Blanc – France (Rhone Valley)
– Walnut City Wineworks Pinot Gris – Oregon
– Hoopla Chardonnay – California, Napa Valley
