September 21st Seminar
- Jackalope Grill
- 4:00-6:00 (Arrive 15 min. early.)
On Monday, September 21, Women Tasting Wine will explore wines from Southern France, presented by Tim Rippa of Petit Monde Wine Merchant. With its mild sunny days and its moderating marine influence, Southern France, colloquially known as "le Midi", is very hospitable to the growing of wine grapes. This vast region produces nearly three times that of Bordeaux, and the Languedoc-Roussillon alone accounts for about a third of all French wine made.
We will showcase a diverse range of styles and profiles of wines directly imported from the area. The majority if not all of the wines will come from organically farmed vineyards from regions including Provence, Languedoc, Rhône Valley, and Madiran. All of these wineries are owned and operated by individual families who focus on their farming and the integrity of their finished wines.
We will meet on Monday, September 21, from 4:00-6:00 at Jackalope Grill, 750 Lava Road. The cost is $45
To facilitate making your reservation for the September 21 WTW Seminar, we will be accepting credit cards as well as cash or checks (made out to “Women Tasting Wine.”) You can drop off your check at Bend Wine Cellar Thursday or Saturday from 2:00-5:00. (Stop by Saturday and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting.) You can also call Diane (388-7564) with your credit card information. As the menu is a fixed one and not a la carte, please let us know at the time of registration if you have any food allergies. We need to have our final numbers in on the Wednesday before the event for the purpose of ordering the food, so payment needs to be received by Tuesday, September 15.
Remember, reservations are on a first come, first served basis and your payment is your reservation. Since we have to have our “head count” in by Wednesday morning, there will be no refunds for cancellations after 9:00 AM Wednesday, September 16, or for no-shows on the day of the seminar.
We hope to see you in September and at future monthly Women Tasting Wine Seminars!
