This week’s tasting features Bordeaux’s South American friends. As it happens, Bordeaux varietals are quite content to grow in South American soil, so this week, Kevin offers up Bordeaux varietals grown in Argentina and Chile. These are all red, all delicious, and all markedly more affordable than their Bordelaise cousins. The tasting is a mere $10 plus tax and tip, and it begins at 2:00 this Saturday, April 18th. If you’d like to join us, you probably know the rules by now: no email or web reservations; instead, please give us a call at 326-9363 and we’ll pencil you in. There’ll be a couple of nibbles as well as tasty wines and an affordable education.
