Tonight’s wine tasting at WGBH: A real community effort

WGBH members, guests from the public, and especially local wine shops are all pitching in to make tonight’s wine tasting a big success.

The theme is a friendly showdown between the Old World and the New World. Every 15 minutes we’ll taste a wine from either place — Old World Sauvignon Blanc first, then New World Sauvignon Blanc. Old World Riesling first, then New World Riesling. Ditto for Pinot Noir and Syrah — Old World first, then New World.

Then, at 9 p.m., guests of the tasting are invited to attend the live jazz concert in Fraser Recording Studio. It’s quite a night out with WGBH!

A big thank-you goes to the following wine shops and wine professionals for contributing to tonight’s event:

Federal Wine & Spirits

Henry’s Wine Cellar

Tomasso Trattoria and Panzano Provviste
