Portuguese Wine Tasting Next Week

You might not be able to afford a trip to Portugal to drink the wines, but if you are in LA there is a way for you to taste them in beautiful Marina del Ray! (photo of Portuguese vineyards from InteleTravel)

Next Monday (November 12, 2008) Vini Portugal will be hosting a Portuguese wine tasting at the Ritz-Carlton. More than 150 Portuguese wines (both table wines and ports) will be poured in luxurious surrounds, and what's even better is that ticket proceeds will benefit spcaLA, the organization that's been helping animals for 130 years. The ticket price is unbelievably affordable at just $25. Contact spcaLA for tickets, or buy them at the door. The doors open to the public at 5:30 and they'll keep pouring until 7:30.

I'll be there, and hope to see you there, too. Great wine, a great cause, and a great opportunity to explore the wonderful wines of this region.

This same tasting will be held in Boston on 11/20/07. It will cost the same and all of the proceeds will go to our local MSPCA. I am hoping to attend so it will be interesting to compare notes later.

That will be fun! I look forward to comparing notes, Richard.

Damn... I have been thinking about exploring some of the better (dry) Portuguese wines recently. I'd love to bring out the girls to the Ritz!

But I have two midterms on Tuesday. Dr.debs, what should I do?

Napthalene, I say to study with all your might over the weekend, then practice zen archery Monday afternoon and go to the tasting. Then dinner, an early night to bed, and a quick review of notes the next morning. That works better for me than cramming the night before! See, GWU$20 has free study tips, too.
