Old World Wine Festival at Finewine.com in Gaithersburg, Maryland

 

One of our Kentlands neighbors invited us to attend the Old Wine Festival at Finewine.com in Gaithersburg on Saturday afternoon. Chef Dolores and I sampled 17 wines from four wine importers and distributors. Our favorite of the afternoon was the Terre D'Aleramo Barbara Del Monferrato 2016, a Sulin Estate wine from Italy.

Hi Roy... after tasting 17 wines, I don't know how you could remember which was your favorite!

At a wine tasting like this, they provide a list with a description of each wine and we take notes on the one we prefer. It is a good idea to have lunch before an afternoon tasting event.

Wow, Roy, 17 wines.  I would easily lose track of the differences and might even get a little tipsy.

I'm smiling because you sampled 17 wines, and were able to post this blog with no typos at 3:00 am.  It must have been a heckuva event!

Good morning Roy. You really got my attention with that 17 number! It would require a big lunch and a lot of notes for me to pick a favorite! Glad you enjoyed it!

That event is right up my alley, you and Dolores must have been a little tipsy after having 17 samples.

Roy, that sounds right up my alley, and will have to check out this wine after I get moved.

Hi Roy... no doubt, eating a bit before all that wine tasting is a very good idea. But I was also thinking that at some point the palate stops distinguishing between the various wines.

Love Italian wines and the new breed of what they call Super Tuscans which are marvelous blends.

Roy,

Hats off to Dolores and you, when we lived in Napa, we would go wine tasting every afternoon.  The best we could do was 3 wineries, and that was with spitting out the wines, eating crackers in between and drinking water.  17 wines and we would have to call a cab...LOL A
