ISES Atlanta Event

Last month I attended, "Senses of the Season", a membership event for ISES Atlanta. The event was held at Bold American's new venue Studio 887 at King Plow. Wine tasting stations from Winefellow were paired with food tasting stations from Bold American. This concept would be so much fun for a birthday party, shower or even a rehearsal dinner.If you've ever been to a wine tasting then you know that by the end of the night it can be hard to remember which wines you had and which ones you liked best. Winefellow has solved this problem by using capture technology. Each guest receives a badge that has a bar code that contains their name and e-mail address. When you taste a wine you rate it from 1 to 10. Then the server scans your badge and enters in your rating. After the party, the company emails you the list of wines you tasted and what you rated each wine. They also tell you where to locally find the wines you liked. The decor was perfect for a fall wine tasting. Something as simple as grapes made such a visual impact with the roses and beautiful linens.
The venue, a turn-of-the century renovated warehouse, had great rustic charm with exposed brick walls and remnants of the original warehouseI'm still learning how to use my camera - here is my attempt to show how the room looked with all the candlelight. I seriously need to take an amateur photography class!
