The Ocean Isle Beach Chapter will hold its next wine tasting event for area wine lovers and their guests on January 22nd. The theme for this meeting will be "A Taste of the Yadkin Valley." This tasting will include seven wines from six North Carolina wineries located in the Yadkin Valley.

"December's meeting which featured sparkling wines and champagnes was a big hit with all members and guests in attendance," said Barwikowski, Chapter chair. "A large part of our meetings are devoted to wine education, and those in attendance learned about how champagnes and sparkling wines are made, the many laws and regulations that govern their production, and what grape varieties are typically used. Our January meeting will focus on wine from our state, specifically those from the Yadkin Valley. The Chapter is also planning a wine dinner in March, and will feature wines from Brushy Mountain a NC winery in a future meeting. The Chapter will also again this year participate in the American Wine Society's National Tasting Project on Pinot Noir. Everyone is welcome to attend chapter meetings."
