ODV is a local group of wine lovers dedicated to “demystifying the art of wine appreciation and discrediting its pretentious stereotype.” The group’s name is a play on the obscure brandy Eau de Vie (New York Times wine critic Eric Asimov has compared eau die vie’s popularity in America to that of bouzouki music) and members gather once a month to taste different wines in an unpretentious setting without all the normal hoopla that accompanies wine tastings.

ODV’s monthly party is from 6-8 tonight at Martini Corner bar The Drop.

The best part is you don’t have to be a member of ODV to attend. Actually, that’s not true. By attending, you become a member of ODV. In typical unpretentious fashion, there’s no cost or signing-up for the group.

Attendance does cost something — $25 to be exact. For that price you get to taste the champagne Lunetta Prosecco, an Argentinian malbec, Navarro Correas Malbec and a cabernet by Californian winery The Show. There will also be food.Owen Morris
