Eve Bushman, Eve’s Wine 101 What do you want from your local wine bar? An educational class? Entertainment? Winemaker tastings? With so many wine bars competing, and looking for new ideas every month, it’d be simpler if YOU JUST TOLD ME what you like:
And maybe the occasional wine education class?
ALL CORKED UP (Wine store and bar): Well, this week alone we have a Sonoma wine tasting tonight, a Chicago Style Prime Rib night tomorrow and great live music Friday and Saturday with a FREE member wine tasting party on the 25th!
I want to learn all I can about wine. When they have information and tastings, sometimes with food, its all the better!
If I could suggest one… New world Vs old world, the major differences between the two and how it affects the final product. This is a great topic to understand from both sides.
For me I’m at a conundrum. I want it all, I’ll go to it all. But…instead of running all over the charts here, do we ever identify in advance what we want and then go find it? Like a Holiday list, or even, a grocery list? Why do we just go for what’s offered? Dr Stephen Covey made a fortune writing the Seven Habits of Highly Successful people. They PLAN their life. Write DOWN their goals. See the END RESULT of what they are working for.
Unless you’re strictly in it for the entertainment of course…(John R. are you reading this?)
I do like a little education with my wine. I’d like a sommelier, or near sommelier, in attendance so that I can actually learn something at a tasting. I try and choose events that I will gain something from. Not just drinking wine, but learning about the wine, the winemaker, the foods paired. Are you getting my drift?
They will remember my name, that’s a given I think.
