THE GRAPE EXPECTATIONS
The Grape Expectations (formerly known as the Red & Whites) meets once a month to share and rate
wines from around the world. Connecting via Zoom and in small groups at members homes;
alternating hosts select the theme, the wines and provide food matches for the evening. The cost is
$20 per person for each meeting. Like bambi’s in a grape forest, we are a resilient group of wine
enthusiasts, the pandemic may have slowed us down, but it has not deterred us from our important
research. The Grape Expectations membership is currently at capacity, with a short waiting list.

NEW WINE CLUB?
Our three NW Bay Probus Wine-Tasting Clubs have all reached capacity. We meet in members’ homes so space is limited. The three clubs have each developed their own schemes and themes and the new one will too. We have tasted many, many wines (including champagne!), have matched those wines with delicious foods, and have even taken wine tours together. This is your opportunity to join new friends to further your knowledge and enjoyment of wines. An initial meeting will be held for those who are interested. Click the link below:
