While trying to track down some upcoming wine events/tastings in this area, I quickly learned that there doesn’t seem to be any sort of centralized listing. At least not one that I could locate. I did find one half-hearted attempt that hasn’t been updated since late 2002.
So, I’ll take it upon myself to try and give such a regularly-updated listing a weekly home here. I’m hoping this attempt will be, at the bare minimum, less half-hearted than the one above.
Here is a modest start, beginning with a one-time only personal offering.
10 Feb – As a birthday present (!) to myself, I’ll be opening about 50 wines or so, and would be happy to share. No, I won’t list the location here, but will gladly pass along info to up to a dozen or so folks who get in touch. 20:00 in Ljubljana.
