On the evening of January 31, 2014, coordinated by the Wine Library Associates of Sonoma County, the Atlantic Seaboard Wine Association (ASWA) presented a wine tasting in Healdsburg, California. The event was titled “Non-Vinifera Wines of the East” and featured Dave Barber, Vice President of ASWA. Mr. Barber began the evening by explaining the differences in the east between the geographical growing areas. After discussing the specific locations for some of the hybrids and native American varieties, he went on to focus on the wines he had selected for the presentation this evening.
Mr. Barber then led the forty-plus attendees through a tasting of six pre-poured wines selected to present typical attributes of their specific varietals.
After the formal presentation and discussion of the six wines, the attendees were then invited to graze on some specially prepared hors d’oeuvres and taste some twenty-four additional east coast wines opened for the evening.
