Yeah vine sampling does sound kinda dodgy xD,

Still would love to try this out as I love wine you'd need an epic size cheese board as well i'm afraid!

I have a friend who has recently conducted fieldwork in Borneo. Perhaps I can convince him to bring some vines from the rain forests there?  ;D

Jokes aside, though, I will definitely try to make it to this event. Who am I to turn down alcohol? *lol* But do we have a connoisseur (no, not a lush  :P ) with the necessary knowledge who can introduce the wines for us?

Uncle Kage has agreed to do talk about the white vine.

But we'd still need an expert on red vine.

(Btw. What would be the proper English term for "Weinverkostung?"

I said:

 ;) ;D j/k that sounds awesome. Don't know who could do the red wines though. And about your German word, I have no idea O.o Google translate simply says wine tasting, is that what you're after?

Please, people... it's WINE. With a "w" :) I know it's confusing, because wine is made from grapes, which grow on vines in a vineyard. So ethymologically, the two words have a certain common ancestry. But today, "wine" is the beverage, and "vine" is a certain type of plant :)

Haha sorry, I couldn't resist. I'll shut up now and stop derailing the thread.  ;D

Didn't you know small typos are the best way to attract more readers? ;3

Would be funny if, after all these typos, someone actually would show up with a piece of vine and say "Here, have a bite of this". ;D

Time flies ^^

I have talked with the winemaker and I think I will be able to bring about 25-30 bottles. He will also give me some flyers about the wine for people to read about.
I also have a ride now which allows me transport.

Now that the two main problems are solved

My remaining questions are:
Are there any other people interested in bringing wine for this?
We still need an expert for red wine. Does anyone know one?
How do I get this event approved? Is there some form to fill out for these kind of things?

Hello?

Nobody interested in this anymore? I am not gonna buy a ton of wine if I am not sure it will get used.
