This week Kevin pulls out a handful of crisp, bright whites that have summertime written all over them. They mostly hail from Germany, though there’s one from Italy, right up against the Austrian border. They’re all crisp, bright and bursting with minerally goodness, and they all go remarkably well with spicy food, another hallmark of summer. So whether the perspiration on your upper lip is chili-induced or just a byproduct of the Arizona sun, these wines will pair beautifully with it. As per our usual format, the tasting will be on Saturday, July 9th, at 2:00, and will cost $10 plus tax and tip. We’d ask that you make a reservation the old-fashioned way, i.e. in person or by phone (326-9363), since web and email reservations won’t work to hold you a spot. We’d be delighted to see you at the tasting.
