Hey there, wine nerds (and those who aren’t.)
If there’s one importer that ties it all together and effectively blurs the line between those of us who are complete wine geeks and those who just like a really good glass of wine, it’s Rosenthal Wine Merchant. And if there’s one person who exemplifies that experience in corporeal form, it’s Joanie Karapetian. As it turns out, she works for Rosenthal, covering most of the western states. Even better, it turns out she’ll be here in Tucson on Wednesday, February 27th, with a bunch of her wines. We were so excited we wrote a special menu around those wines, and we think you’ll like the whole experience- the gateway wines that are sure to take you down the rabbit hole of wine nerdiness, the dishes we make to go with them, and Joanie herself, speaking knowledgeably and passionately about these truly special wines. Neither web nor email reservations will hold you a seat at this event, so we encourage you to pick up the phone and make your reservation at 326-9363. This promises to be one of those events that you wax rhapsodic about ten years from now, so now’s your chance to get in on the action.
