Cheap & Cheerful

Sponsored by The Lakeview Community Association.  A fun/informative/casual event.  This was my first time attending as a guest of a very good girlfriend but certainly will not be my last!
The theme for the evening was "Cheap & Cheerful".  We each brought 6 wine glasses and were eager to begin.
We started off with a Spanish Cava, sparkling wine which seemed to put everyone in a happy mood. Food was also paired with each variety of wine.
Our Guest Speaker for the evening was James Kent  who was eager to share his knowledge. 
 Our selection for the evening included two whites (Sauvignon Blanc & Chardonnay) a Rose and three reds (Seleccion; Syrah-Grenache;Shiraz).  We were encouraged to take our time, enjoy and discuss what we thought about each wine.  We were not told any prices.
Everyone certainly had different opinions and it was fun to see and hear what others thought and why/why not they liked certain wines.
At the end of the evening all wines were rated and prices given. 
There was an opportunity to order or all wines are available at "ZYN" 17 ave SE.
A very nice evening, great food and wine with the opportunity to share with other wine lovers.
Thank you Lakeview Community Association and looking forward to the next wine event.
