Wines Of The World: Helping Autism

Posted: Updated:
One group in the valley trying to raise money by raising a wine glass. The Red River Valley Aspergers-Autism Network is holding a wines of the world event Friday night.

From 6pm-9pm wine, a silent auction and door prizes will all be enjoyed while toasting to raising money for Autism. Tickets for the event are $25 that includes the wine, a sandwich and a raffle ticket. 

The Red River Valley Aspergers-Autism Network helps educate and support those with Autism.

Johnson Brothers selected 8 wines for the event. Laura Botten,the Fine Wine Manager for Johnson Brothers, says for the best wine experience use your five senses.

1. Sight. Look at a wine and take notice of the color, if it has a brick color that could mean the wine is past it's prime.

2. Smell. Slightly swirl the wine in your glass to allow the alcohol to breath, then smell it. Put your nose deep into the glass to take in all the smells. If the wine is tired (past it's prime) it will smell like a wet newspaper, wet dog or old basement. Those smells mean the bottle was corked, and not because of the distiller but may of had a defect.

3. Taste. Sip a bit of wine into your mouth and hold it in. Let the wine make it's way from the frond to the back of your mouth, and include both sides. Wine experts say this allows your entire palate to taste the wine. 

4. Touch. Feel what the wine leaves behind. What kind of taste and texture does it leave on your tongue.

5. Hear. Enjoy the sounds of fun with friends, and the clink of glasses as you cheers.

All those experiences can be used at the Wines of the World event Friday night.
