I can play it, but the main question is "WHERE?"?

 

Thanks for reviving this topic, @JessicaDowd. If you go back to the first page, you'll see that it's supposed to be your own local wine shop, wherever that is. Pick a bottle at random, blindly if you can so safely. Show us what it is, and those who want to participate will get the same wine. Compare notes. We didn't really have much luck with the game because of uneven availability of the same wine.

 

The current pandemic adds another complication: I think the whole "get someone to spin you around in the store" idea is untenable while maintaining social distancing. Maye there's a virtual way to do a random choice. Anyone?

 

I had forgotten that this was how I discovered inexpensive but good Malbecs. :)

Aha! Thanks for reviving this thread, Jessica and Nancy.

Wine tasting is, and should be, a very social endeavor. (Pandemics suck.) And yet, eGullet is the perfect solution to a sucky problem!

You've just given me an idea! I think we should have bi-weekly varietal tastings. New thread to come ...
