This week’s wine tasting features two reds and two whites from the northerly end of the Italian boot, and they’re each excellent food wines. It turns out they’re tasty to sip on their own as well, but we’ll let you decide for yourselves how you’ll best put them to use. The tasting is, as usual, $10 plus tax and tip, and it begins at the typical 2:00 start time on Saturday, February 3. It will undoubtedly fill up, so you’ll want to make a reservation (the old-fashioned way- by calling us at 326-9363, since web and email reservations won’t guarantee you a seat.) The whites are crisp and bright; the reds are lean with tinges of earth around their fruity core, and Kevin is chatty and knowledgeable. All in all, it’s worthy of your consideration. Think about it, but think quickly, as there are only about a dozen seats left as I write this.
