Grand Wine Tasting 2

Our second wine tasting event was at the Ourglass Wine Co. There were over 80 wines available for tasting, plus about 10 beers. They also had cheese, crackers, sausage and bread to help cleanse your palate in between the tastings. There was a quite diverse selection of wines, many from small boutique wineries all over the world. There were whites, reds, roses and sparkling wines. This was another great opportunity to try many different wines.

Here is a list of the wines that I especially recommend from the tasting.
