There are many fun things we get to do as members of the Wine Outlet family, and one of them is community events. Recently I had the pleasure of joining Gray Mosby of Salvetto Wines as we worked an event for the McLean Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club. Not even the thunderstorms could hold us back from an awesome night as Gray poured wines from all over the United States while I poured wines from Moldova, New Zealand, France, and Spain. With a line-up like that it’s hard not to enjoy your job. Some of the crowd favorites were the Mokoroa NZ Sauvignon Blanc, Roots Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, and Liquid Geography Mencia Rose from Spain. If any of these sound interesting, we regularly carry them at the shop.
The jazz combo was quite good, and when they weren’t jamming you could hear all the laughter from the kids playing out in the pool. There was also delicious food, but the best part by far were the guests. Inquisitive, friendly, not to mention thirsty, itwas like a killer block party that included a first class wine tasting.They also found some cool wines and an even cooler place to buy them. Wine tasting events are great for community groups such as this one, work parties or fun team building events, fundraisers, and lots of other groups as well. If this sounds interesting get in touch with us and maybe you’ll be a the next party!
