“Savage? No, Sauvignon Blanc.”

Dearest Feastlings,

The word “Sauvignon” shares the root for the word “sauvage,” French for “savage” or “wild,” most likely because the grapes were first discovered growing wild.  We may want to pause for a moment to express our thankfulness that the grapes (Sauvignon Blanc as well as Cabernet Sauvignon) were eventually cultivated and vinted, so that now we have something to to every Saturday afternoon.  This week, it’s all Sauvignon Blanc, that crisp, refreshing white that helps us through these last difficult gasps of summer weather.  You can taste them at 2:00 on Saturday, September 10, for only $10 plus tax and tip, accompanied by our usual snacks and Kevin’s usual persiflage, but you’ll want to call for a reservation, as we’re likely to fill up, and web and email reservations won’t hold you a place.  Call 326-9363 if you’d like to join us.
