Wine Tasting Party

Our first wine party in Taipei! There is a wine store that features montly parties that include food and wine tasting. We had been wanting to go but missed it the last month as we weren't in town together yet. Marked on the calendar and when the day rolled around, almost forgot again! LOL.
We took a cab over and got there shortly after it started. There were a few expats there and it finally started to get more packed later on. The food was basically nibbles/finger food which was good since there was an awful lot of wine available. Unlike wine pairing parties in the US, you poured your own wine here!!! OMG! We did pretty small pours so we could try more wines. There were a few that we just downright did not like, but for the most part, we liked most everything we tried.
As the night wore on, we talked to a few of the regulars and found some really nice people! A few guys from the US and a couple local gals. Everyone was really nice and kind in offering suggestions for stuff to do and things to see here. Gonna try to recruit a few of them to the TravBuddy meet up on the 25th when James is in town! :D
