    Biographical / Historical

    The Wine Society of Riverside was formed in 1983. The group hosted monthly wine tastings at various locations, using a scoring system created by University of California, Davis. The group also produced a newsletter titled Monthly Re-Taste for its members. As of 2001, the Wine Society of Riverside was still active but its members communicated informally with each other and the society no longer produced a newsletter.
