OK sounds very good Brian. As for a topic ... I always wanted to do an open forum ... to hear everyone's most burning questions ... anything goes even if all the questions are unrelated ... because I could speak in depth on a hundred topics ...

for the last question, you ask the members a question: What do they want for the second session ... Food & Wine, Burgundy, Chenin Blanc, a taste along, Southern Hemisphere ... let them choose the 2nd session topic by plurality ... the first session is no topic.

How many members do you have?

Currently I am a wine consultant. I am also WSET Advanced Certified. I'm an International Bordeaux Educator and a Spanish Wine Educator and an active member of the Wine Judges of Canada. But you don't have to put all that ...

It all sounds very good ... I am sure you will have a lot of interest ... at some point you will want a tasting group ... you have to taste ... (a private room at a restaurant, perhaps or at a restaurant before they open) ... everyone brings a bottle or chips in money ... of course everyone is required to spit ... that is how it is done ... tasting is different than drinking ... you could have a day trip to Michigan wineries, which are good but not widely distributed ... I'd like to learn more about them myself ...

How old are the "members" ... is that a problem? ... In NYS, college students are allowed to taste wine in college at age 18 - possibly even 17 ... has to be a regular supervised college run classes ...

Angella Aiello, a recent college grad runs a fantastic wine club in Toronto ( for thousands of 20-somethings - well there is no age limit, but they are mostly young ... she has lots of great ideas, makes money & and has lots of fans ... someday you could do some of the things she does ...

Keep me posted on the Skype event dates ... I have to learn how to do it ...

Email is good Brian ... let me know if you do not have my email ... how old are you and how did you get interested in wine already? ...

Can you have SWS sub group that are all over 21? There must be enough JRs & SRs & grad students to have a sub group that tastes ... like SWS JV & SWS Varsity squards! They start in the JV group and then in a couple of years they will be primed & educated to advance to the Varsity Society before they graduate ... how about that?

That explains it ... I, too, originally fell in love with wine while working in restaurants around that age ... keep me in the loop ...


PS: I've worked every restaurant position, from back of the house to front ...The second best job in a restaurant is bartender ... the best is sommelier, if they have one ... If not, offer to create one!
