This week may be a bit cooler than last, but face it: we’re still in Arizona, and it’s still well within reason to think about a crisp bottle of white wine with dinner, or even without dinner. This week, Kevin cracks open four such wines- they’ll be delicious in the afternoon before the sun goes down and the perspiration is still beading on your upper lip, and they’ll quite possibly be even more delicious when the sun has sunk below the horizon and you’ve grilled a piece of fish for dinner. Want to taste them before you invest? The best way to do that is to show up on Saturday, September 16, at 2:00 and taste with us. You will, of course, need a reservation, which I’d remind you cannot be had by web or email, but must be made instead by phone or in person. The number to call is 326-9363. It’s $10 plus tax and tip, and light snacks are included.
