SWGGA Meeting

SWGGA Meeting

Just a reminder that we will be having a SWGGA General Meeting by Zoom this evening at 7:00 PM. The invitation is below.

Program: John Gilman, Proprietor of New West Wine Co, will talk about his wines, his approach to wine selection, and how he got “into” wine in the first place. This will be a gentle interview by myself, taking place in John’s shop, with the usual Q&A afterwards. The wine shop is located in the Holbrooke Hotel, but access is from Main Street in Grass Valley.
We hope to see you then.

SWGGA October Meeting

SWGGA October Meeting

Wine tasting at Ponderosa Hall!  That’s the big idea for our October meeting. We will explore the world of low-cost wine. Dare I say cheap? They may surprise you. You’ll be the judge of six wines, and it will be a blind tasting. They’ll be commercial wines so that you can say what you’re really thinking – you won’t hurt anybody’s feelings. We’ll see if we can arrive at some sort of consensus when the dust settles. Bring two glasses each, as we will taste in pairs: A versus B, and so forth.  

SWGGA Picnic Cancelled

SWGGA Picnic Cancelled

Our annual SWGGA Potluck and Barbecue Picnic originally scheduled at the home of members Al and Linda Schafer on Sunday, August 29th, has been cancelled by the SWGGA Board of Directors. Everyone is disappointed with this difficult decision, but the health and well being of our members has to come first.
