Good day, Feastlings.
While the first varietal to jump to mind when one suggests Italian white wine is invariably Pinot Grigio, we’re only too happy to remind you all that there’s a host of other delicious white varietals that hail from the Italian boot (and its surrounding islands.) This week, Kevin follows up his Forza Italia tasting with a bunch of Italian whites- crisp, fresh and delicious but nuanced and subtle, we’re delighted to offer these four wines this Saturday, May 28, at 1:00 rather than the customary 2:00. Kevin has another wine-related engagement at a fundraiser for Ben’s Bells, some of the food for which, by coincidence, Feast will be catering. Heck, you could attend both events in one day if you felt like it. We don’t know whether the Ben’s Bells event is sold out or not, but perhaps the kind people at Ben’s Bells can tell you whether there’s still room to join them and support their excellent cause. Here’s where to find them:
Meanwhile, though, we do know there’s still room in this Saturday’s tasting. Give us a call at 326-9363 if you’d like to join us at 1:00 rather than 2:00, and bring along ten dollars plus tax and a tip.
Bianco Italia, and no Pinot Grigio!
