Wine tastings are fun. And the tasting held at Vinaigrette last evening for 30 members and guests of Slow Food Santa Fe was no exception.  Sommelier Greg O'Byrne  chose the  wines with Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations in mind. And as we swirled our glasses;  whiffed each wine; and madly guessed at the hidden perfume - rosemary? raspberry? butterscotch? grass?  - Greg guided us through the tasting with charm, wit and wonderful information.

The swirl- releasing the subtle perfume of the wine.
The whiff...
