Founded in Daegu in 2009, the Korea Wine Club is a non-profit organization designed for wine lovers, wine enthusiasts, and fun people that occasionally like to dabble in the odd glass of wine. Or, for some, as Thomas Jefferson articulated, “Good wine is a necessity of life for me.”
Last month, the Korea Wine Club presented its inaugural Busan Wine Club party at Table Talk in KSU. For W22,000, over 125 attendees had a smashing time mingling among a diverse collective from those simply wine-curious types to bonafide oenophiles celebrating, networking, enjoying five bottomless pours (all night long) of intriguing wines from Italy, France, South Africa, and Chile that were as stimulating as the conversation.
This December 31st, the BWC’s sequel is offering something a bit more refined. This special event will be held at the tasty and tasteful Namaste Indian restaurant in Haeundae. Like all Wine Club events, they will be offering a handful of well-chosen wines of distinction until one gratifyingly gets one’s fill. In addition, a buffet of curry, rice, and naan will be provided by Namaste. Looking for something different this year, for W35,000 advance/ W45,000 door, savor 2014/ tantalize 2015 with some exciting vino and vittles with the Busan Wine Club.
