Just a quick head's up, in case you haven't noticed it already!
On my black menu bar underneath my blog banner, I have added a link to Cork Poppers posts. For those new to the Gypsy, Cork Poppers is the wine group I happily attend every couple of months.We taste a variety of wines from all over the world and eat well, too! And the table decorations aren't so bad either!
In the Cork Popper posts you'll find our regular cast of characters (and some really are characters!). We aren't wine experts -- we just want to learn a little more about wine and enjoy tasting and finding new favorites. We taste six or seven wines each session -- usually with a regional theme but occasionally it will be something like "Wines for Thanksgiving" or "Wine for a Summer Night."
I decided to put the page up, partly because I was having trouble finding my own posts and I wanted to refer back to them when heading to the store! I thought maybe it would help others new to the Gypsy or who, like me, just wanted to remember something from long ago
Posts are listed by category (French, German, Italian, etc.) with links to the original post. Each post includes a photo of the wine bottle and the price at the time of the post. Bear in mind that a great 2010 vintage from one winery, for example, might not be as great in 2014! And it may be more expensive as economies fluctuate.
But they can give you an idea of what our wacky group thinks and if you're ever short of wine ideas, it's a spot to start!
Check it out if you enjoy wine! And cheers!
