ELVVAWS May 2018 Meeting: Wines of Region 1

Our next meeting is set for WEDNESDAY May 9, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.at Veil Pavilion at the Silverton (3333 Blue Diamond Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89139​). ​We will be enjoying the wines of Region 1!
The Winkler Scale, or as it is sometimes called, The Fonzarelli scale (since he was lovingly portrayed by Henry Winkler), is a number assigned to a wine-growing region to tell exactly how warm or cool it is. The scale runs from 1 to 5, and can be said to advise those interested in growing grapes, on the correct grapes to grow. Since Region 1 is so cold, very few grapes can ripen. But, some of the most amazing wines in the world are grown in these regions including Champagne, Chablis, Tokaji, German Riesling, and a even Santa Maria Pinot Noir.  We are going to dive deep on what makes Region 1 so important, and taste what bonds them together and what separates them as well.
 
Join us for a special evening with Master Sommelier Will Costello as we take a deep look at why these wines are so amazing. Will is one of only 233 Master Sommeliers in the world and resides in Mountain’s Edge.
 
Tasting fee for members is $12 per person and $20 per couple.  Non-member fee is $16 per person.  CASH ONLY!  Please also bring your own wine glasses.  Please bring an appetizer and wine to share with the group.
