The Second City Food, Wine + Social Club Inaugural Event

I'm lucky enough (through blogger connections) to be part of the new and exclusive Second City Food, Wine + Social Club. Last night was our inaugural event and the main focus was wine tasting. We learned how to correctly swirl and smell wine before tasting and different aromas for red and white wines.We also talked about the different regions wines come from. It was a fancy event and I feel like I can talk wine better now. I'll impress you next time we go out to eat!

The wines that we tasted included:
NV De Bartoli "Family Selection" from Brut, Australia (Chardonnay)
2010 Domaine de Reuilly "Les Pierres Plates" from Reuilly, France (Sauvignon Blanc)
2010 Le Terrazze Rosso Conero from Marche, Italy (Montepulciano)
2010 Massaya "Silver Selection" from Bekka Valley, Lebanon (Cinsault/Grenache/Mouvedre)

There's Lindsay from The Garden Apartment! We both agreed that the Massaya red wine from Bekka Valley was our favorite. I'm going to have to try more Lebanese wines!

Wine, wine, and more wine! (There was also food, I promise.)
