Regardless of how well the pun works, no wine is more versatile at your Christmas table than Grenache: Turkey? Check. Ham? You bet. Beef? Unquestionably. Root vegetables? Mmm hmm. There’s scarcely a dish you can throw at Grenache that it won’t get along with, rife with red fruit but offered up in a vast breadth of styles. This week, you can taste through a handful of them and see which one suits your holiday needs best. The tasting is, as usual, $10 plus tax and tip, and you’ll need to make a reservation, so give us a buzz at 326-9363 (remember, web and email reservations do nothing to hold you a spot at the tasting.) It’ll begin this Saturday, December 2, at 2:00.
