Ocean Isle Beach Chapter Meeting January 20, 2013

American Wine SocietyJanuary 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."

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 January 20th starting at 4:00 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, and cheese being served.
