Busy wine tasting weekend on the North Shore.

Hey North Shore Boston. This weekend has some important tastings coming up on Saturday for those of you not up for the big Boston Wine Festival.

The Vineyard is having a large tasting featuring 52 wines. I’ve had a look at the list and see some nice Merlots if you are ready to shake the bad juju from Sideways. The Vineyard is in North Andover and their tastings are a great time. Read more about The Vineyard in an earlier post.

Read the reveiw on this wine purchased from the Beverly Wind and Beer Co.For those of you that live within a good Tee Off from Beverly, drop by the Beverly Wine and Beer, Co. This is a wine shop with a great selecton. Taster B and I pop into this wine shop and never leave without something under our arms. A few of the wines we have reviewed are from this shop including the Sonoma Creek Cabernet Sauvignon 2005.

Saturday's flight will be:
1. 2005 Cambria Chardonnay Katherine's Vineyard; Santa Maria Valley, California ($22.99)
2. 2006 La Crema Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast; Sonoma, California ($27.99)
3. 2004 Bodegas Alto Almanzora "Este" Tinto; Almeria, Spain ($9.99)
4. 2006 Tormaresca Neprica; Puglia, Italy ($12.99)
These wines will be discounted 10% during the tasting.
Get onto their email list if you are into tasting/pairing dinners.

Check out A Passionate Foodie for another tasting in Sagas scheduled next weekend at Ourglass Wine Company. Wine, Blues and pleanty of friends.

New to tasting?
If you are new to wine tastings, have a look at Getting the Most from your Tasting Trip. I talk to many people who drink wine but are afraid to go to a wine shop or a tasting. If you are feeling intimidated, I understand, but don’t be. Everyone there will be willing to help you have a great experience. Tastings are fun, you learn a lot and meet great people.

Be sure to check the wine shops' web sites for details.

The Saugus tasting next weekend should be lots of fun. I have about 20-30 people going with me to the tasting. Most of us will have name badges reading "North Shore Winers."
