This Saturday, Kevin is here to discuss terroir and will have four wines out that display it. Terroir, if you’re unfamiliar with the term, is the notion that a wine displays on the nose and the palate a sense of where the fruit is grown, and while there are a great number of winemakers out there whose objective to to make wines that are “safe” and somewhat generic in order not to be overly earthy, there are a great many whose objective is exactly to create wines that are reflective of the place they come from. The tasting is at 2:00 this Saturday, January 9, and costs $10 plus tax and tip, and if you’d like to join us, you can reserve a place at the tasting by calling us at 326-9363. Sadly, web reservations won’t hold a place for you.
