Wanted: Winies and Foodophiles in Northampton

I wonder, is there any interest in the Northampton/Pioneer Valley area in starting a wine tasting group? I'd love to join one already in existence, or else get one started with some fellow wine enthusiasts.

  1. I'd be interested. Never been in one before. How many active members needed to give it a go? How often do groups meet? What's the format?

      I haven't formally been in a group myself- but I imagine a group of three plus, meeting about once a month or every few weeks to share bottles and some grub. We could negotiate how to format the meetings - but I think it would be fun to drink regionally. Have a night with several bottles from the Loire, for example, or a tasting of a few bottles from the same producer. I'm pretty open to suggestions, just looking for an excuse to drink and talk wine with other interested folks in any way. Do you have any ideas?
