Insects & Wine launch party – preview!

The first of three rounds of insects at our launch party, before our guests arrived

Last night, we held a launch party for Insects&Wine. We had LOTS of insects and wine for people to taste and pair with each other. We’re going to post next weekend with all the details, and with some contributions from our guests describing the tastes, and which pairings they liked best.

For now, here’s our event in numbers:

  • 12 wines (5 white, 3 red, 2 orange, and 1 each of rosé and sparkling)
  • 7 insects (from 4 different continents & 5 different countries)
  • 9 tasters (from 7 different countries!)
  • 1 locally available insect that surprised everyone with how tasty it was
  • 10+ memorable quotes and moments, some of which probably shouldn’t be shared publicly…

So we think we’re getting off to a pretty good start 🙂

Thank you to everyone who was involved! And for those reading this who weren’t involved but would like to be:
