I live in southern part New Jersey close to Philadelphia. I am looking to either meet people and talk to other people in this area to study, do group tastings, and be able to help each other out when it comes to taking the exams. I am about to take my level 1 exam this week. I think it would be great to create a little team to help each other when it comes to taking the exams and being able to do group tasting to really learn about everything together. Plus, it is always fun to get to know new people that all have the same interest and live in a close area.
I know studying can be stressful but fun, so it can always be great to have a friend to help give moral support and help.
If you like this idea and are interested please leave your e-mail. If it seems like a lot of people like this I can create a Slack or GroupMe so everyone can talk to each other.
I live in Manayunk, which is on the opposite side of Philly, but would love to be a part of this group! email@example.com
Hi Alexandra and RyanI host a tasting and study group in Philadelphia at Del Frisco's (15th and Chestnut) on Saturday's from 1-3pm. The group is focused on our staff and other local wine people that are sitting for their certified or just getting started with their CMS Journey.My email is firstname.lastname@example.org, and my cell is 302 507 1063 if you would like to join. I can send you all the details if you would like. There is a large community of Philadelphia somms at all levels, and you are right, moral support and motivation are key. Hope to connect soonScott
Awesome! I just sent you an e-mail
I just passed my intro CMS this week, but would love to keep developing my tasting to go onto my certified! if this ends up being a group I am very interested :)
Alexandra - I just saw Scott's reply and have tasted with his group in the past and just shot him a text to reconnect. Let me know if all worked out as I am back to study mode as well and need a to re-group.
Congratulations! I have been distracted for a little while, sorry. I don't know if you are still interested in doing group tastings but I would love to!
Once again sorry for my such delayed respose. If interested my number is 609-605-6176
