While we offer an extremely broad spectrum of wines here at Feast, there’s one place we keep going back to over and over again. The wines of the Rhône Valley (and their cousins, the same varietals grown all over the globe) consistently offer food-friendliness and appeal to both those who aren’t aficionados but know what they like, and to those who paw through the latest issue of the Wine Spectator or the Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. This week Kevin opens four bottles, two from the Rhône proper and two California contenders that will help you taste the difference between Old World and New World approaches to these tasty varietals. The tasting, as usual, is a mere $10 plus tax and tip, and reservations are a must. Web and email reservations won’t hold a spot for you, so if you’d like to join us, please call 326-9363 and one of us will be happy to make a reservation for you. Thanks, everyone.
… and then there was Rhône.
