Wine Society Announces Tasting Theme For January
Beach Chapter Meeting January 20, 2013
8, 2013 - 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
January 20th. The theme for this meeting will be "Award
Winning Wines from Cantina Villa Gianna." This tasting
will feature 6 Italian wines from the Lazio region of
Italy. These wines are imported by Wines D'Italia, an
Ocean Isle Beach family business. Many of these wines
can be found at several local restaurants.
December's meeting, which featured seven budget French
wines, was phenomenal, said Barwikowski, Chapter chair.
"For the price point, these were very good wines. They
were all very well received by the group. Those in
attendance were also treated to 4 sparkling wines from
Franciacorta which helped to add to the merriment of
this event. This event also featured several food
pairings that were appropriate for the wines being
tasted. The Chapter has plans for future tastings which
will feature wines from another local Italian wine
importer, and from J. Lohr Vineyards. Everyone is
welcome to attend chapter meetings."

Silver Coast Winery
