The Glenmassan Wine Club
Wine can be enjoyed intelligently by anyone, and without having years of training or an expert palate. At Glenmassan Wine Club meetings topics such as labels, varietals, and technical terms are all demystified in the most pleasurable and least intimidating environment - your own home. Wines featured are those recommended by other members, travelers, and regional wine professionals, not mass market products that a retailer or wholesale distributor wants to move of the shelf that month. With a focus on cold climate, local and regional production, a different Minnesota wine or winery is featured each month.
Confidence with wine begins by feeling comfortable discussing it but
don’t expect things to get too serious—no lengthy lectures and no harsh
criticism of one taster's opinion. Home and amateur wine makers receive equal respect and consideration.
The wine club meets once a month and is hosted by a different club member or other casual venue. Please feel free to contact us for details. firstname.lastname@example.org
