• Interstate wine tasting, via Skype

01 Nov

ROCHESTER, NY — Chapters of Women for WineSense in New York and Texas plan a taste-off event that will introduce people from both states to each other’s wines.

The event will be held via the Skype video conferencing process for PCs on Tuesday, November 9.

Texas has about 120 wineries, New York State nearly 300. That has been piquing the curiosity of WineSense chapters in Rochester and Dallas, who decided to avail themselves of technology for a groundbreaking event.

Sixty people from each chapter will gather at either the Staybridge Suites Conference Center in Rochester and the Milestone Culinary Institute in Dallas from which they will video-conference their programs simultaneously.

The event will pair regional dishes with a wine from both the Finger Lakes wine region and the state of Texas. Attendees will get the background on the award-winning wines and the regions where they are produced.

Further details and instructions are available online.
