Time again for a big ol’ rosé tasting and after the winter we just had, I’m looking forward to it more than ever. In year’s past, tasters have loved the opportunity to compare and contrast so many different styles. So...let’s do it again! With July 4th right around the corner and an embarrassment of rosy-toned riches, let’s start opening bottles and see where we end up. A world tour including Oregon, Washington, Italy, Spain, Austria, and of course favored regions of France (Loire, Languedoc and Provence). 10 wines and let’s hope, lots of sun. FREE!
Happy 4th of July weekend!
No Tasting but we can help load up those July 4th picnic baskets for you, so come on by! Cheers!
We had a great aged Zinfandel tasting in February, let’s revisit that American varietal now that summer’s here. Ridge, Turley, Seghesio and more. $15
Look, this ain’t your daddy’s California wine! Hosted by Mike Wheeler, details to follow.
The indefatigable Theresa Hannam will provide a crash course to catch you up on the current Lambrusco revival. Dry sparkling red and rosé from Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region. More fun and tasty than you might think! FREE!
Can’t escape to Tuscany this summer? Neither can we but we can open a bunch of delicious Tuscan reds and pretend! Recent favorites from Montalcino, Montepulciano, Chianti and more. $15
Inspired by the wines of Germany, Barnaby planted a vineyard and started Teutonic in 2008.
