So looks like you guys & ladies had a good time lots of yummy food also . So how does this work do you all bring a bottle of wine or does the host take care of that ? Do you sample store bought and homemade wines or both ? Ok I have dozen more questions but won't ask them all now lol . Need to get my lunch ready before the hockey game comes on .

Today we all brought French wines (store bought). This is the 1st time we brought "retail" wines. All the rest of times we bring our own wines and wines we need feedback on BEFORE we bottle.

Tom mentioned that there was a guest at his meeting, so I confess I was lurking around. Tom caught me with a glass to my lips and I'm not even embarrassed. When I got there, I really did not know what to expect. I found some nice people who really knew wine. I didn't know you had to be a real wine expert just to make it. I'm out of my league. A bottle of my wine was critiqued by experts who really know their stuff. Not only was it wine educational, but a good time was had by all.
Thanks for the invite Tom. :b

Thanks "Lurker"
But, you don't have to be a wine expert to make good wine. WE all (me) started with a kit. What you saw was how we all grew by being members of a wine club. We have all "grades" of wine makers from new to advanced. WE tend to Grow in our wine making just by talking to members and getting critiques from others.
Hope to see more of you and SWMBO in the future.
Kinda like here ASK and you will be making better wine in no time.
