American Wine SocietySeptember 6, 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 September 23rd. The theme for this meeting will be "Exploring Unique Wine Varietals." This tasting will feature seven premium wines that are made from unique grape varietals such as Mencia and Txakolina.

August's meeting, which featured eight boxed wines from California, Argentina, and New Zealand were well received, said Barwikowski, Chapter chair. "The August tastings demonstrated what many wine snoots feared most, that quality wines can be purchased in a box. Attendees did note however, that the quality of the red wines was superior to those of the white wines. This event was again attended by a large group with 40 members and guests in attendance. The Chapter is also planning tastings featuring Spanish wines and budget based French 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 September 23rd 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. This event will be limited to 40 members and guests. 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, and cheese being served.

All those planning to attend this event are asked to RSVP, by 9/19/12 via e-mail to OceanIsleAWS@gmail.com.
