Hi ho, Feastlings.
Say what you will about the clouds and impending thunderstorms; it’s still hot, and now, at least by Tucson standards, it’s muggy as well. If that doesn’t call for clean, crisp wine, we don’t know what does. With that in mind, this week Kevin will be bringing out four wines ideally suited to your Tucson summer drinking needs. There’ll be three bright, fresh white wines and a frosty, crisp pink as well. They’re food-friendly, but they’re delicious by themselves as well; it’ll be a tasting well-suited to the season. You’ll want to make a reservation for this one, and you’ll want to do it by phone, as web and email reservations won’t hold you a place. It’s at 2:00 this Saturday, July 21, and it’s $10 plus tax and tip. We hope you’ll brave the presumably hot and muggy afternoon.
Light, bright and mostly white- summer wines.
