GUSTO Tasting Group | Monthly Theme Tasting- Texas vs. The World (Syrah)

Wednesday, August 1, 2012, from 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Austin, Texas

A111 Lavaca Street
Austin, TX 78701

This tasting group is open to ANYONE who wants to join a community of like minded people who have a passion for learning and seeking out new things in terms of food & drink.

This is intended to be a monthly themed tasting where every month we will have the opportunity to focus on a topic that the meetup group decides on as well as the opportunity to bring in guest and celebrity hosts. Themed tastings are not limited to just wine; so no topic is really off limits in terms food and drink. Your input on themes is greatly appreciated.

As with the blind tasting group, the idea with a themed tasting is to bring people together; both professionals and enthusiasts alike to create a sense of community and to learn about things we love and are passionate about.
