Gang of Pour is a close-knit group of friends based in the Metropolitan Detroit area, California, Ohio, Virginia and the wilds of Canada. We gather to enjoy fine wine whenever we can, but don’t call us connoisseurs. Rather, we like to think of ourselves simply as explorers who seek out new wines from around the world.
We have been active and online since 1997. Besides holding tastings of our own, we also report upon larger events, such as ZAP, Hospice du Rhone, The Family Winemakers and more. We review wines, interview winemakers and comment on just about anything else that catches our attention, wine related or otherwise.
We feel that fine wine is best enjoyed and evaluated when we can sip a glass or two leisurely over a period of time, without hurry, in order to more fully appreciate its charms, and to observe how it changes and develops in the glass. We prefer to sacrifice quantity of selections sampled, in favor of quality of the tasting experience itself.
That said, the best way to really discover what Gang of Pour is all about is to peruse the blogs and archives of our various contributors, so read on, McDuff!
