Spring Wine Tasting at Corral Liquors PDF Print E-mail
Written by Bob Truetken   
Monday, 16 March 2009

One of our members sent this to me to publish.† Sounds like a great event.

From Warren Williams:

For many years we have been attending the semi-annual wine tastings put on by Corral Liquors in Granite City, Il
They bring in their distributors and these distributors serve 150 or more wines. There is no pressure to buy anything. It is just a great chance to try a wide variety of wines. If anyone choses to buy, the prices are very good because, Corral Liquors doesn't have to put the wine on their shelf with the typical markup.
The best advice is to attend with a focus on particular wines. Kathleen & I divide up our shopping list and limit ourselves to what we taste. We find many wines we rate as very good and have value prices.
The club may be interested in this.
