Hingham Wine Merchant Holiday Wine Show Event Details

Monday, November 3, 2008

The Hingham Wine Merchant's 7th Annual Holiday Wine Show is slated for this coming Saturday, November 8th from 6:30PM-10:00PM. This event is open to existing Wine Merchant clients only; RSVP and pre-payment is required. That being the case, I'm posting this notice here as a service to attendees who may have misplaced their E-mail with event details.

I attended this show for this first time last year and I really liked the concept. You get to taste up to 200 wines with all important varietals represented and unlike a tasting event like the Boston Wine Expo, you can actually buy all of the wines you taste and even better- at special event pricing. Pair the Wine Merchant's high standards for the wines they carry with their gourmet sensibilities and you've got a great night out! The store typically has event-purchased wines packaged and ready for pick-up a week or so later which makes this a really convenient way to stock up on wines for the holiday season.

The event is at a new venue which promises to be less crowded than last year and the previous two-session format has been replaced with one session. I think this is a good call- last year we attended the later session and found that 1st session hangers-on couldn't bare to leave which made for a very crowded session especially early on.

If you're planning on attending the event, please leave a comment below and I'll look forward to seeing you there. If you're a Wellesley Wine Press lurker and you happen to see me there and say "Hey- you're that guy from the wine blog!" I will be truly humbled.

I'll follow-up after the show with a review.
