wine time

For anyone that is going to be in Champaign this summer, I'm thinking of hosting a weekly wine tasting at the BFH. Nothing spectacular or fancy, just a bottle of wine or two and some friends, maybe some appetizers if I have time. Despite the quantity of wine that I drink, I don't really know much about the stuff. I was hoping a weekly tasting would allow us college students to educate ourselves on something other than shakespeare or DSP. We'd probably start off by acquanting ourselves with the traditional wine varieties, ie cabernet sauvignon, merlot, pinot grigio, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, etc... and then move on to some lesser known grape varieties. I've run the idea past a couple of my associates and they all loved the idea. There was even talk about a weekly beer tasting at BFH! HELL YEAH! Anywho, everybody is invited and I'm gonna try and keep my blog updated with wine news in case anyone is interested :)
