I mentioned an idea I had at the last NYC tasting about the possibility of having combined tasting with all the eastern woot groups invited (or anyone else from the west coast who'd like to fly in and join us!)
Everyone at the tasting was really enthused by this idea especially with the idea of it being held on a beautiful, 82 foot, 1920's yacht that would sail around Manhattan for 2 hours.
I was thinking sometime in July and if we can confirm 40 participants it would be $50 per person. (The boat can accommodate 48 but it would be more comfortable with 40).
I got the company to waive the per bottle corkage fee and the above price includes the rental cost of the yacht along with all gratuities & taxes.
We would allowed to bring light snacks/picnic foods aboard.
We could limit the tasting to 10 wines with multiple bottles of the same wines.
Here's the info for the yacht:
This sounds awesome! It depends on the date, as July can get hectic, but I would love to join in, as would my husband.
Be the change you want to see in the world

I'm IN! But lets pick a date quick because July is going to be hectic for me and I want to block this on my calendar ASAP

I thought Audrey Landers had a twin sister?
Anyway...I have updated the first post. Please speak up if you want to be moved to the confirmed list.
We need to hash out wines.
Also, I might need help coordinating this since I'll have my hands full in about a month or so.
For a theme, since we're blending the various east coast w.w groups, how about setting the tasting around blends?
Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Coro Mendocino, Conundrum, TyTanium, Titus Lot 1, Chocolate Block, etc.
Nothing labelled or traditionally a single varietal wine.
Could be fun. Blends can be the winemaker's top expression. I'd pop a Monte Vide Eu or two if we go with it.
