    Two thumbs up for the survey confirmation response, bitches.

    Just a suggestion from a retired wine professional. (I used to be a wine buyer for a chain of wine stores, attended enough wine festivals to make anyone comatose, former chapter Director of "Les Amis du Vin", Regional President of Bacchus Wine Club.) The best tastings have very little food involved. Food is used as more of a palate cleanser and tummy filler to keep from getting sick and/or too inebriated. Things like mild cheeses, crackers, breads, fruit and light appetizers are all I would recommend. Keep the selection to 10 or less and let the ones in charge do the selecting. Unless it is a "varietal" tasting (one where only one grape variety is tasted) I suggest that you taste a variety of wines both red and white. Then you should start with dry whites and move to reds with any sweet or desert wines last. Figure on pouring 6 to 8 glasses per bottle, that comes out to 3.25-4.3 fl oz per wine per person. that gives everyone enough to taste and enjoy if they like it but not a waste for those who don't. So if you have 10 wines @ 4.3 oz each and everyone potentially consuming all they are served totals 43 oz (that is just a little short of 2 bottles per person) @ an average of 12% alcohol by volume over the course of 3 hours figures to a drunk factor of about .12 blood alcohol!

    Just food for thought, Larry

    The schedule isn't set in stone. I may be shuffling a few things after I let the initial wave of feedback shake out. I can see 4 or 5 events shuffling which might leave wine tasting on Saturday night after dinner.

    @Tushon Sorry I didn't get back to you last night. Let's see how I can help.

    John's winery has 9 labels that they sell wine under. Their estate label (incase your area uses different terms, they own the grapes, they grow the grapes and they bottle at the same location) has the following wines; Riesling, Late Harvest Resling, Iced wine, Unoaked Chard, Barrel Fermented Chard, Sauv Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Sangiovese, Cab-Merlot, Merlot, Cabernet, Syrah, and a port.

    In addition the non-estate labels have a Petit Verdot a couple different red blends and white blends.
