Step aside, gentlemen, this event is for the ladies…
Science has proven that women have better palates than men, but sometimes in the midst of a group setting, women don’t have the opportunity to show that. It’s time to discover your wine palate in the company of other friendly female members. Whether you are a beginning taster just now recognizing your appreciation of Santa Barbara Pinots, or an seasoned wine enthusiast looking to add to your collection, come and take part in a fun, girls only evening, and let your palate take the lead!
Debby Allen, who is leading the tasting, was a key figure in Cencible, a women only wine group in Philadelphia, PA; (named for the grape as well as for its intended “sensible” meaning). Cencibel was dedicated to the appreciation of Fine Wine And Food in the company of other passionate women, and today Debby continues to foster friendships and wine appreciation through her group led tastings in Santa Barbara.
The evening will start with a Rosé toast and a dinner spread (suitable for all diets), and will follow with a blind tasting and open conversation of three highly-rated red wines. Through the evening we will discuss the defining factors behind three varietals or regions, using the textbook wine tasting criteria: see, swirl, smell, sip…. (And then sip some more).
