Ocean Isle Beach Chapter of American Wine Society Announces Tasting Theme For August Meeting

Ocean Isle Beach Chapter Meeting August 26, 2012

American Wine SocietyAugust 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 OceanIsleAWS@gmail.com.
