EVENT: Second Annual Virginia Wine & Cheese Tasting to Fight MS

Here at Virginia Pour House, I’m all about supporting charity events and helping others in need to the fullest extent I can. After attending a blind sparking tasting at Early Mountain Vineyards (my second year attending), I spoke with Allan over at CellarBlog about his work with some other Virginia wineries to hold on an event supporting the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. I told him I would spread the word and I am, after all, a man of my word. The Second Annual Virginia Wine & Cheese Tasting to Fight MS is a great event (and very inexpensive given the enormity of the cause). I strongly urge all of you, the readers, to put May 5th on your calendars and attend this charity event. For online ticket purchasing, there will be a pre-registration online, but you can also purchase tickets at the door for no additional cost. The details are listed below, so be sure to attend or visit the CellarBlog for more details on this great cause!

From the CellarBlog:

The event is May 5th from1:00 to 3:00 and is being held at the Syrah Restaurant at the Reston Sheraton.

Tickets are $15. The ticket entitles you to a tasting of two wines each from 7 (and counting) wineries plus a sampling of different types of cheese. All money from ticket sales and auction items will benefit the DC Chapter of the National MS Society

In addition there will be a silent auction, with great items donated by local merchants.

Participating wineries include:
Tarara
Loudoun Valley
8 Chains North
North Gate
Notaviva Vineyards
Fabbioli Cellars
Doukenie Winery

This is a great event and last year we raised over $7000 to fight MS, this year we are hoping for even more success!

Out of Town: A Day Exploring Temecula’s Wine Country

Last year, I finally took advantage of the opportunity to visit Temecula’s Wine Country. With iPods loaded with crazy throwback tunes, playlists roaring and near perfect weather, my friends and I hit the open road on our way through the hills to Temecula. What was I expecting upon arriving? To be honest, I had no idea. I had been to Stone Brewing Company the previous year so the scenery I was looking for was similar to that. Desert hillsides lined with sparse greenery, palm trees and a lot of rocky soil. As we approached the "Welcome to Temecula" sign, we drove past gorgeous housing communities and neighborhoods, which had me scratching my head. Okay... so, where is wine country? [...]
