Fine Design Wine Tasting Tacoma
by Don and Peggy Doman
Cassandra Rebena of Swanky Tastings joined the Tacoma Executives Association in April of 2011. She has really become involved in the organization and in the Tacoma community. She entertains at special events with wine tasting of California Wines. Working with fellow Tacoma Exec member O'Sheas Catering, Swanky Tastings is part of the 2011 Grand Prize for the TACID (Tacoma Area Coalition of Individuals with Disabilites) annual fundraising breakfast special drawing at Hidden Treasures on the September 20th event. While O'Sheas Catering is donating a catered party for twenty, Cassandra will explain the pairings of wine that will accompany the selected dining options.
Recently, Cassandra wowed members of Tacoma Execs with samples of wine and recipes. Deborah Pittman, owner of A Fine Design, art framing studio in Tacoma hosted the event.
Cassandra brought six bottles of wine for everyone to sample. She explained the differences. There was a nice mixture of whites and reds.
Deborah provided glasses as well as chocolate and cheese to cleanse the pallet between tastes.
Everyone had their favorites and their not so favorites. Don Gustafson found one of the reds a bit more tasty than he was expecting.
Cassanda decanted one of the reds and displayed her wine aerator appliance.
Some tasters even had a chance to try the same wine with different glasses to experience the subtle distictions in taste.
During the tasting and afterwards guests were encouraged to take notes and ask questions.
The wine tasting event lasted just a little over an hour, but conversations continued for some time afterwards. There was enough wine to enjoy and plenty of laughter and good company.
