About the Event

Description

AWS Monterey Chapter is participating for the second time in the American Wine Society National Tasting Project. This national project happens once a year and helps AWS members from multiple chapters learn about and taste the same wines, comparing their opinions using the AWS Wine Evaluation format. The AWS Monterey Chapter Wine Evaluations will then be sent to AWS National who will correlate the data of other AWS chapters and Certified Wine Judges. The results will be presented at the National Conference in October 2023.
