Somewhere, at some point, some undoubtedly supercilious person decided that the wines of northern Italy were infinitely superior to those of southern Italy. We dispute that theory, always, and offer the assertion that geography is simply geography, and while a region may impart a certain terroir, there is nothing inherently better or worse about any given region’s flavors and subtleties than those of any other region. This Saturday, Kevin will be backing it up with first-hand tastes of delilcious wines that hail from that part of Italy that some undoubtedly supercilious person is dismissing even at this moment as inferior. Please come and taste what we’re talking about. The tasting is this Saturday, July 29, at 2:00 pm and costs $10 plus tax and tip. All you have to do to secure a seat at said tasting is to call us up at 326-9363 and ask us to hold it for you. Remember, web and email reservations won’t guarantee you a seat. We look forward to seeing you.
Italy, outside the northern regions.
