A verdict on the GiraMondo events?

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?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
