Ocean Isle Beach Chapter of American
Wine Society Announces Tasting Theme For August Meeting
Beach Chapter Meeting August 26, 2012
14, 2012 - Ocean Isle Beach, NC - Today the
Ocean Isle Beach
Chapter of the American Wine Society
announced the theme for its next scheduled meeting and
wine tasting event.
The Ocean Isle Beach Chapter will hold its next wine
tasting event for area wine lovers and their guests on
August 26th. The theme for this meeting will be "Wine by
the Box." This tasting will feature seven premium wines
that come packaged in a box rather than a bottle. The
Chapter will also be celebrating its 1 year anniversary
at this event.
July's meeting, which featured pinot noir wines from six
wine regions around the world was part of the American
Wine Society's National Tasting Project, said
Barwikowski, Chapter chair. "The July tastings were done
blindly, and attendees rated each wine according to AWS'
20 point rating scale. This event was the largest held
to date by the Chapter with 44 members and guests in
attendance. Attendees also had an opportunity to meet
Mr. David Noll, the creator and executive producer of
the Food Network's #1 hit show, Chopped. The Chapter is
also planning tastings featuring wines made from unique
varietals, and Spanish wines at future meetings.
Everyone is welcome to attend chapter meetings."
Chapter meetings are held at the
Silver Coast Winery
located at 6680 Barbeque Rd. Ocean Isle Beach, NC 28469.
The meeting will be held on August 26th starting at 4:30
PM. The cost of the tasting will be $10 for AWS members.
The guest tasting fee is $15, $5 of which will be
refunded, if the guest joins the American Wine Society.
All guests are urged to bring their favorite wine glass
for this event. Prior to the tasting, the chapter will
hold a brief meet and greet social with wine, cheese,
and cake being served.
All those planning to attend this event are asked to
RSVP, by 8/23/12 via e-mail to
