Bordeaux Bounty and Thanksgiving Wine

There’s much to be thankful for as we approach next week’s food-and-wine-centered holiday.

One reason for gratitude is the bubbling up of of several free (or almost free) Bordeaux tastings at two Tim’s Wine Market locations between now and Sunday. (The first one starts at 3pm today!) Check the Events Page for details.

The festive wine season continues apace in Orlando, both before and after Thanksgiving. Here are a few highlights for the coming week:

Orlando Wine Blog’s first-ever tasting is next week, along with lots more cool stuff!

This coming Thursday, I’ll host what I hope will be the first of many Orlando Wine Blog events – a unique opportunity to taste and learn about the wines of Missouri. That state played a major role in America’s early winemaking history and is home to the country’s first AVA. We’ll compare some of Missouri’s current wines with more familiar grapes and wine regions. I hope you’ll join me at Digress Wine for a geeky good time! (Seating is very limited, so get your tickets now.)

That tasting is in great company, coming during a very full week of exciting wine events around the region! Here are a few highlights.
