I recently moved to Miami Beach and looking to form a blind tasting group.
I have 5+ years of experience working with a Napa Valley winery, and last year I passed the Intro MCS.
Participated in root stock selection, vineyard management and winemaking in Mendoza, Argentina. Produced a gold medal winning wine from our first harvest.
I am planning to take the Certified MCS by the end of this year.
Let me know if you are interested. Once we get a committed group of at least 4 we can decide on the day and time.
I am interested. I work in a restaurant and I don’t have a fixed schedule but I think we can come up for a schedule that work for everyone interested.
Thank you for your interest! Let's wait till we get at least 2 more who will join us. Also, I'm looking for a space to meet, any suggestions please let me know.
we should all join together
So far we have Patricia, Fidel and Jose.
Who else is interested?
I have a very possible location in Miami Beach. More later...
Cool. Check the link i posted. Its another guy in miami also taking the certified.
i will not be available in january but will be starting in february. Also i work at night.
i am interested, i also work night time and I’m usually off tuesdays and Wednesday’s. I’m friends with Jose and we both live in north bay village.
Would Wednesdays at 11:00 am work for all of you?
We can start on February 5th.
I am taking the CMS Certified in April in Tampa and would be interested as well. I just happen to run into this but do not look at this forum too much. You think we can exchange emails and just start an email chat. If that is OK, my email is email@example.com,
Hello Fidel, Jose, Alex and Ray,
Urbanica The Euclid Hotel ( 426 Euclid Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139) are very kind to let us use a private large table with chairs, and will provide the glasses for our first blind tasting on Wednesday, February 5th at 11 am
Please, confirm who can commit to attend. They are not charging for the space, but if you can stay for lunch at their restaurant Orilla Bar and Grill (no obligation) it would be nice.
After your confirmations, let's decide on the bottles to blind taste. Thank you.
Its ok with me.
Count me in
So far Jose, Fidel and Ray have confirmed.
Is Alex joining us?
Bring a bottle, single varietal, less than $20. Bring it covered for the blind tasting.
We may also bring a CMS deductive Tasting journal, and/or study material and blind tasting forms.
Let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day!
