#24 Go to a Wine Tasting

While I like wine, I’m not a wine connoisseur. I don’t know how to pair wines with food and picking a bottle to bring as a hostess gift to a dinner party still warrant a panicked phone call to my expert. Even places like Total Wine bring on flop sweats and nervous tics. That’s why a wine tasting had to be on my 30×30 list.

I chose the New Vista Wine Walk. I figure have some wine, donate to charity, and do both in the open air atmosphere ofTown Square. It was an interesting experience. A lot of fun and a lot of wine. I had a blast hanging out with friends and learning just a little bit more about this thing called wine.
