Hey guys. Basically I've been making a conscious effort to learn more about wine and taste as much as possible. I have somewhat of an ulterior motive - I'm going to need a palate in the future when cooking. I enjoy wine more and more but I find it hard to converse with people in real life about the subject. The question is, Is there any way to find local wine clubs and/or wine classes? I've looked around on search engines but haven't come up with much. It would just be nice to be able to compare notes and or share wine with other enthusiasts.
Oh by the way I live on Long Island, NY
