Friday, December 26, 2014 announces 42-wine Sine Qua Non tasting

I recently wrote "Orlando is Boonesville when it comes to wine events, so residents who want great wine experiences are on their own." Well (Full disclosure: I buy wines from these guys) has just rubbed egg all over my face by announcing what they describe as "arguably the greatest domestic wine event ever" -- a tasting of 42 Sine Qua Non (SQN) wines, to be held at Luma in Winter Park on January 31, 2015.

This is a breathtaking undertaking given the number of wines, the elevated esteem of this estate, the prices that the wines command at auction, and the relative stature of the company putting on the event. As Adam ( co-proprietor ) describes it, he and his dad were some of the earliest members on the SQN list (If your kid were born today, he/she would be in college before you would make it onto the list) and have doggedly taken their allocations through the years, thus making this event possible.

The lineup of wines to be tasted is shown in the table below. The whites will be served in a "meet and greet" setting while the reds will be tasted in flights based on year of production. I am rubbing my hands together rather vigorously right now.
