Season is upon us!
Mood Wine starts again Thursday, October 9, 2014
The Loft, Uptown Design District
We begin Mood Wine's third season with red wine club: three fine reds each paired with one of Patrick's gourmet bites.
Mood Wine features hard-to-find artisanal wines and a social gathering for wine lovers. Moodies gather four times per year to socialize with other wine lovers, taste the club wines, and take their wine home with them.
Like any wine club, credit cards are charged for club wine about ten days before release.
Then, members and their friends attend a private club gathering featuring reception wine and social time, followed by a focused tasting of the three club wines, each paired with one of Patrick's gourmet bites.
Because he is a WSET-trained wine educator, Moodies trust Patrick to find great wine priced below other wines of similar quality. Because of his long experience as a gourmet chef, Moodies know the wine will be paired with something innovative and sumptuous, rather than with a triangle of cheese on a cracker.
The $20 fee for the club gathering includes reception wine, nibbles, gourmet bites, and tastes of the club wine. Patrick's partner Jake, a designer and photographer, captures each event for all of us to relive on social media. In the world of wine, such an experience is truly rare.
If you love wine, and especially if you want to expand your knowledge of wine, this club is a no-brainer.
Club members unable to attend gatherings may pick up their wine at their convenience, or have it shipped.
During the 2014-2015 season the Palm Springs red and white clubs will gather four times each. We are also starting Mood Reserve, a special red club featuring six wines per release and a more intimate, more focused tasting. In addition, our San Diego red club will gather four times.
