I'm already in a wine club that's totally similar! We meet once a month and over the last year have worked our way through most of the major varietals, alternating red one month with white the next. To make sure that we minimize the chances of duplicates and to really get a good idea of what's out there, we all sign up for a different country that is known for producing the varietal of the month. We also each research the wine we're bringing to compile some tasting notes (so we can learn what we're supposed to be tasting), and each have our notebook for taking additional notes. I'm totally intrigued about the blind tasting, though. Maybe I will suggest that for an upcoming wine club to see how our tasting skills are coming along. It's been fantastic for learning! I highly recommend it!!

yeah i just read a book about wine for beginners and partysugar is right about that one. ONLY french wines are marked Champagne if they are made from those. plenty of American winemakers name their bubblies Champagne even tho they are made from elsewhr.

Hey yummers, thanks for pointing out the bit about champagne. But I think calling it "french champagne" is actually a great idea for a beginning wine club. Not everyone realizes that true/real Champagne only comes from the Champagne region of France (the link party posted mentions that a bit). I think if you don't specify, you might have an event where everyone shows up with a bottle of Korbel!

There are a lot of American vintners who produce a sparkling wine that they refer to and market as champagne. For actual facts involving French champagne vs. "champagne" (aka sparkling wine produced outside of France) check out Bubbly 101.

Your phrase "french champagne" is totally incorrect. Champagne is only called Champagne if it is made in Champagne, France.
