Problem is probably twofold:

1. We need a Bonnie!
2. We are all so far apart, and I don't know about the others, but our economy is so damn bad down here...not sure how committed some can be.

That's a guess. Doing anything right now is a stretch. I'm not going into savings and/or retirement funds to drive half way across the state to drink wine.

That being said...if someone throws a party, I'll probably be there!

You know what they say, be careful what you wish for, you may get it. Bahwm is thinking about trying to host a tasting at our niece's condo in Fort Lauderdale.

Ha! Figures

That is about 4-5 hours from us, and would require a stay over...not unreasonable. What time of year is she thinking?

Still nothing much but a pipe dream at this point, but if it happens, probably during Winter break, 2/18 to 2/25. Don't be making any travel plans.

Heck with that...cheaper to fly into TIA...rent an earth car, and the 4 of us drive to Ft. L.

Good times, baby. Good times.

Okay all you FL wooters !

I live in Seminole which is in the Tampa Bay area

Maybe we can get together some place on the west coast like Tampa, St. Pete or even Bradenton, Sarasota area.

I know a really good place to eat near the airport in Sarasota.

Looks like we'll be getting a winter place in Naples again this year so something should be possible down here.

I just talked to swmbo and she said it would be fine for us to host something at our place in Tampa. I know that it will be too far for some of you, but I would just like to see if there would be any interest for something in the spring.

Hello mommadeb1
I have purchased many wine woots and my total purchases at woot are over 110 at this point.

I am simply interested in wine and learning more from others and meeting from time to time to enjoy a good glass of wine.

My wife thinks sangria is good wine

So I would like to share quality wine with others that can appreciate the good stuff

Thanks for the reply momadeb1

What's wrong with your Florida folks?!
Last summer 30 or so of us paid big bucks to go to Sonoma/Napa a Magical History Tour to expand our knowledge and do some guided tastings. Here you have the host of that commenting three different times

he's open to attending a gathering!

If he were coming to somewhere in the LA area, 2~3 hour drive for me, I'd be all over that opportunity as likely would be any other attendees of the tours, it just doesn't get much better. rpm is a living book and meeting and talking with him for me was a life changing event, at least as far as enjoying wine goes...

[shakes head]

Get off you duffs, make some time for this, pull out your best bottles and get this organized!

Seriously! Bahwm and I are driving 4 hours to Ohio next month for a dinner with Scott and Jana Harvey and a growing bunch of wooters. Some nice aged Cabs after dinner, then spending the night. Worth it.

It might be time for us to finally pick out a date and get the ball rolling. I was thinking of a Friday or Saturday night in late July or early August.
