Every now and again, we interrupt our normal ten-dollar Saturday wine tasting to do something a bit fancier, and this is one of those weeks (so, incidentally, is next week.) Our theme this week features all Piedmontese wines, and more specifically, all Nebbiolo. As Nebbiolo isn’t the most economical grape to grow, it’s a little pricier to drink as well, so this Saturday’s tasting is $25 plus tax and tip, rather than the $10 you’ve come to expect, but I’ll say this: these wines are special. As usual, web and email reservations won’t hold guarantee you a place at the tasting, so if you’d like to join us, please call us at 326-9363. And do yourself the favor of calling sooner than later, as the tasting is already half full.
