    Does anyone know if there is a “groupe d'amoureux du vin” , or grupo or club de aficionados de vino in Santo Domingo or Santiago?

    The major wine stores, such as El Catador or Cava Alta, usually held wine tasting tours and interesting things about wine. They have a huge selection to choose from with wine from around the world. Many brands you haven’t even heard from. I think wine is still a developing industry, so they run the gamut from the basics to everything else in teaching people how to drink that.

    There is one El Catador store on Tiradentes (on the same block that is the huge blue office building) and another one on the Brean Peña St (very near avenida Churchill). Cava Alta is on Augustin Lara St with the many date palms in front. I don’t know how anyone can miss that store since it’s the nicest building on that street.

    There are other places in the city too.

    There is one winery in the whole country (I think its the only winery in the Caribbean) and is near Palmar de Ocoa in Peravia province. They too held wine tasting tours, checking out their winery, and have a very nice visitor center.

    Yes thanks very much.
    What I really mean is clubs, like we have here in Europe where they buy collectively, a friend of mine is a wine-dealer and direct importer with stunning french wines. That’s why I ask.

    I have a group of upper-echalon pals here, we do tasting parties of Gallo mixed with Brugal blanco, also stunning.

    The DR vineyard..... is the oldest in the Caribbean, started by the Spaniards

    When you buy there, you get a piece of the vineyard , and wine!,

    They get two yields a year thanks to the weather

    So I’ve been told..... by the fellow selling land/lots
