February 15 Seminar
"Wines of New Zealand"
- Jackalope Grill
- 4:00-6:00 (Arrive 15 min. early.)
New Zealand is a land like no other, and its Wine is an experience like no other. New Zealand wine is distinctive for its purity, vibrancy and intensity. The long ripening period - a result of cool temperatures - allows flavor development while retaining fresh acidity, a balance for which New Zealand wines are renowned. There are a number of distinct major winegrowing regions spread throughout New Zealand, with the majority on the East coast of the Islands in the rain shadow of the mountains. Within these diverse regions, sub-regional characteristics are beginning to show through and wines are now being distinguished as being not just from a wine region, but from a sub-region and a place.
The special combination of soil, climate and water, the innovative pioneering spirit and the commitment to quality all come together to deliver pure, intense and diverse experiences. In every glass of New Zealand Wine is a world of pure discovery.
On Monday, February 15, Women Tasting Wine will feature Wines of New Zealand, presented by Chris Berning of The Estates Group.
We will meet from 4:00-6:00 at Jackalope Grill, 750 Lava Road, and the cost is $45.
To facilitate making your reservation for the February 15 WTW Seminar, we will be accepting credit cards as well as cash or checks (made out to “Women Tasting Wine"). You can drop off your check at Bend Wine Cellar Thursday or Saturday from 2:00-5:00. (Stop by Saturday and enjoy a complimentary wine tasting.) You can also call Diane (388-7564) with your credit card information. As the menu is a fixed one and not a la carte, please let us know at the time of registration if you have any food allergies. We need to have our final numbers in on the Wednesday before the event for the purpose of ordering the food, so payment needs to be received by Tuesday, February 9. Please note the cut-off date!
Remember, reservations are on a first come, first served basis and your payment is your reservation. Since we have to have our “head count” in by Wednesday morning, there will be no refunds for cancellations after 9:00 AM Wednesday, February 10, or for no-shows on the day of the seminar.
We hope to see you in February and at future monthly Women Tasting Wine Seminars!
