Wine tastings: LocalWineEvents.com
Now that summer is almost over, we need to start thinking about indoor events. What type of event is common in the city and in the ‘burbs? Wine tastings!
If you’ve been wondering how I’ve found out about free wine tastings, here is my secret: LocalWineEvents.com.
Visit the website, choose your state (or country), and then the city. Voila, you have a listing of wine events in that area. Now, beware that most events are NOT free; some are only a few dollars while others cost more than $100 per person. (We only list the free or cheap Chicago-area events on the Thriftista calendar.)
This is also good if you are travelling — since it lists places from all over the US, Canada, UK, and other international events, check it out before you hit the road.
This site also lists beer tastings and mixing classes, so it is useful to a wide variety of people.
Plan to attend The Annapolis Food and Wine Festival on November 6 and 7, 2010. This is a “must-do” event for all in the Annapolis-DC-Northern Virginia-Baltimore area!
Enjoy food and wine pairings; gourmet chef cooking demos; and wine tasting flights – all add up to a fun filled weekend. http://www.annapolisfoodandwinefestival.com or call Jim at 1-410-263-4012.
