Top Tasting Notes
Part of the fun of the Vinteloper Urban Winery Project has been the Tasting Menu cards. These simple pieces of cardboard are given to each person who pays for the tasting flight, lists the wines I have made previously that are available for tasting, a bit about me and how I make the wines & each person is encouraged to jot a few tasting notes about the wines.
There have been some very interesting responses over the first couple of weeks so I thought I would share a few here. Some of these folks (those with @ before their names) you will find on twitter - if you'd like to stir them up, I have no problem with it...
