A Taste for Life 2007
WineCommune is pleased to
announce our seventh annual “A Taste for Life” on
Now in its seventh year, 'A Taste For Life' has always been a great success. To commemorate this milestone, we have decided that it’s time to change it up a bit with an informal, end of year affair. We will still be faithful to our coveted wines, but our hearts will stray from the format.
One thing we will not compromise is the caliber of wines we will be drinking. In keeping with our mission of “the most coveted wines” this must be a B.Y.O.B. of a higher caliber. No cooking sherry or Grandpa Sven’s Beet Wine. We are asking for first growths, grand crus and cults du monde. In prior ‘Taste’ events, your table served 8 world class wines. This year, you will sample 50. So, please honor the tradition by bringing your best.
We hope to see you on December 1st to help us scratch the itch and celebrate
seven years with ‘Taste’. We expect the seats to fill up rather quickly, so reserve yours as soon as you can.

How it Began
In 2001, founding WineCommune members Shaun and Julie Bishop began ‘A Taste for Life’ to bring their members together to honor a shared love of fine wine in a unique format: verticals and medleys of the world’s top-rated wines at different “themed” tables, each poured and guided by a sommelier. After seven years and counting, ‘Taste’ ranks among the most exclusive wine tasting benefits anywhere attracting some of the most sophisticated pallets from around the globe. This year will be no different in that respect.

“Legendary Bottles” at ‘Taste’
The 50 seat dining room is softly illuminated with light from polished brass lamps which dances off an extensive collection of crystal decanters and a large floral bouquet greeting guests as they enter.
Co-owners Giancarlo Paterlini and Suzette Gresham-Tognetti work together to provide an unparallel Italian dining experience. Acquerello has received countless awards, including a Michelin star in the first-ever 2007 Bay Area guide.
WineCommune is the proud founder and sponsor of this extraordinary wine tasting benefit. Since 1999, WineCommune has provided an on-line network that connects wine buyers and wine sellers, both private and retail via the Internet, enabling a global community a means of buying and selling fine wines quickly and efficiently. Founded by Michael Stajer, WineCommune is now the largest wine auction-retail site on the Internet. In six years, WineCommune has helped raise nearly one million dollars for Bay Area charities with “A Taste for Life”.
