A Night of Wine Tasting in the Caribbean

Enjoying a night of wine tasting with my husband and some local island friends at Mahogany Grille on St. Thomas

In sticking with the drink theme that appears to be happening this week, my husband and I attended a wine event with friends on St. Thomas. We sampled a sparkling wine, a couple of white wines, and a couple of reds.

After sampling each one we were asked to describe what we tasted, the aromas we sensed and the mouth feel.

Tasting the same wine from 2 different glasses…amazing to be able to taste and smell the difference!!

For me, one of the most fascinating parts of the tasting was in trying the same wine (in this case a Stag’s Leap “Artemis”) in two different glasses: one in Riedel crystal, the other just a plain glass goblet. I was so surprised to taste and smell the difference it made to drink out of a particular type and shape of glass!! By the way, I preferred the Riedel…

It was a fun evening! Here are a few more photos of one of our last nights on the island.
