Our Recent Meeting:

May Notes

Twelve of us met at Jonah’s Seafood House in E. Peoria last Saturday night. The restaurant was very accommodating and gave us a table in a nook, which felt like a private room. We tasted wines from Tennessee. The buzz was that they tended toward the sweet side. This was just a small sampling of the wines available in the Nashville area.  Thanks to all who participated!

Upcoming Events:
July - Sherry & Naldo will host July 8.  Theme is a "Wines of Sardinia".
August - MaryAnn & JL will host.  Theme will be Syrah
September -  Bob & Lisa
October -  Renee & Mark

The chapter will generally meet the second Saturday of each month unless otherwise agreed to. 
Please bring 3 - 6 wine glasses per person for the tasting (so you can compare the wines)
