A Wineberserker Public Service Announcement
The 10th annual Virtual Tasting Series (VTS) is ready to go. The first week for 2021 kicks off the week before Thanksgiving and runs through the New Year giving those time to post a tasting note into the thread. Each week is hosted by a fellow Wineberserker who decides the theme, format, and the charity they’d like to support.
Matching Donations: if you’d like to co-host the current week by matching the donations then just post into that week’s thread “I’m matching” and any terms and conditions you’d like to add. A number of people have requested this and it’s a great idea so have look below and pick a week you’d be interested in matching.

I’ll do all the heavy lifting, you just sit back and enjoy the fun and support for your charity.
First time hosting? Take a look at the compendium of past events for ideas. Or get creative and come up with something completely different.
