*** Curry-Dive and Gewürtztraminer Tasting -- Thurs June 17, 7:30pm ***

nja | Jun 11, 2004 07:18 PM

Hello Chowhounds!

I have long believed that Gewürtztraminer is the best wine match with Indian food. Frequent attendees of the Curry Dives have likely grown tired of hearing me repeat that claim. So next week I seek to prove my assertion by hosting a Curry Dive and Gewürtztraminer Tasting. All are welcomed to attend.

An East Bay (Oakland/Berkeley) Indian Restaurant

Thursday, June 17th 7:30pm

- Approximately $30 per person for food, tax, corkage, and tip.
- Each attendee must provide at least one bottle of Gewürztraminer to share with the table. Wines will be reviewed by me ahead of time to ensure we have a wide variety of regions and styles represented.
- Each person must bring their own wine glasses.

What to do:
Space is extremely limited. If you would to attend, please email me at to reserve a spot or to be put on the waiting list.
