The national Taster’s Guild organization is now part of the American Wine Society!
One of the benefits of the AWS’s acceptance of Tasters Guild members into the fold, is the ability to share with all American Wine Society members digital copies of the Tasters Guild Journal. The summer issue has features about old vine zinfandel and regular installments such as “Ask the Winemaker.”
