While flipping through the Upcoming! events I noticed a few wine tastings done by an organization called GiraMondo wine adventures. A lot of wine is lost on me – I’m more a hops & barley man if you get my drift – but I do love me the bubbly. So their “Wines of Summer: Champagne and Other Bubbles” strikes my fancy.
Now normally I’m the cheap one, but my darling girlfriend balked at the just-under $60 a ticket price. I think it’s potentially reasonable – how cheaply could you buy eight bottles of champagne to sample normally? Never having attended one of their events, though, for all I know it’ll be a mouthful of eight different kinds of $7 Cava from Trader Joes.
So, have any of our readers gone to one of their events? Are they well run and do they seem to have a good assortment to sample?
