We didn’t taste them all, but we tried…

200 wines  – & a few beers – at one event, all for the tasting. Now that’s my idea of a great afternoon! Wine Expo 2012 was held last Sunday at Harford Community College & several of us from the WBJC staff (Jonathan Palevsky, Kati Harrison, & myself) were in attendance, as was Mr. Neal, er, I mean my husband, Jim Knost. Around 500 people attended & sampled the wares of 35 vendors. We tasted quite a few of the beverages on offer, although not too many, as we were set to attend friends’ Oscars-viewing party back in the city that evening & needed not only to be able to drive safely, but to save room for still more wine! Everyone seemed to be having as much fun as we were & Wine World owner Elizabeth LaBruto, a great friend of WBJC & one of the event sponsors, was very pleased with the turnout. Here are some pics that we took that day, including Elizabeth (in white) with members of the WBJC staff:

    Mr. Knost took a nice picture of us, I think! It was fun tasting but also watching people of varied levels of experience. Wine newbies, aficionados and those in between mixed and mingled.
