Ocean Isle Beach Chapter of American Wine Society Announces Participation in National Tasting Project For September Meeting

September 6, 2011 - Ocean Isle Beach, NC - Today the Ocean Isle Beach Chapter of the American Wine Society announced the theme for its next scheduled meeting. "We are very excited to announce that our local chapter will be participating in the 2011 National Tasting Project: "Merlot- The Wine that Gets No Respect."

The National Tasting Project is an opportunity for American Wine Society Chapters across the United States to sample the same group of wines and compare their scores to other AWS chapters. Project organizers work very hard to select wines that represent the theme while being available to AWS Chapters nationwide.

The event will be a blind tasting with wines from France, Australia, California, and Washington” said Barwikowski, Chapter Chair. "This is an excellent way to learn about Merlot; its origins, history and popular growing regions. Everyone is welcome."

Chapter meetings are hosted by Silver Coast Winery at their facility located at 668 Barbeque Rd. Ocean Isle Beach, NC 28469. The meeting will be held on September 18th starting at 4:30 PM. The cost of the tasting will be $10, and we encourage all 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 and cheese being served.

All those planning to attend this National Tasting Project event are asked to RSVP, by 9/16 via e-mail to OceanIsleAWS@gmail.com.
