Due to the nature of this tasting (bottle size, seating & holiday considerations), attendance is limited to 20 participants.
As you'll note, we've increased the limit due to overwhelming interest. To this effect, we're suggesting that everyone try to bring two 375's or one 750ml bottle of their selection. If you are only able to bring one 375 of the bottle of your choosing that's OK too. We'll make due.
Some wooters have already expressed interest in this tasting and have been put on the list.
If you are not on the list and would like to attend please sign up for the waiting list.
If someone drops out of the tasting their seat will be offered to the next wooter based on time/date stamp of their post expressing interest in attending.
