She's not a huge wine person, so she's worried she'll feel out of place, so we just have to make sure she isn't persecuted because she isn't as big a wine nerd as the rest of us! llo... So yeah, it'll be me +1 now.
Tell her not to worry. Think of this as more of a summer bbq with some wine tasting in between. Also I wanted to mention to everyone- Please 1 bottle per person/couple. We're already up to about 12 people and I think 8 to 10 bottles is perfect.

I'll make burgers if you guys supply the meat, onions, spices, (and cheap red wine to keep them juicy).
Also, I may be +1 if that's ok with you.
If not, I could leave the KRPS01R at home ;) ... j/k.
Awesome. Theme is: wine that goes great with bbq? Zin, PS, Rose, Gewurztraminer(think spicy), etc.
We'll be happy to supply whatever you need, I love onion burgers! I'll also make a couple other things. Maybe just hot dogs and some chicken.
And feel free to bring someone. That way you'll have some company for your drive too.
Glad this is finally coming together, now we can start thinking about wines.
I'll post an updated attendee list later. I'm in NJ right now, stopped by the winelibrary and found myself a case of random wine not on their website. Also tasted the Vayniac Cab barrel sample. It was already really good and it still has a year to go and this isn't even the final blend. It looks like it will be well worth $38.
