As much as it feels like humanity only sees the world in black or white issues, be they race, politics or otherwise, the educated wine nerd- and, I would argue, the educated human- knows that the universe can’t be compartmentalized as such. This Saturday, September 12, our zoom tasting will feature all wines that are neither red nor white, but rather fall somewhere in between. You know, like reality. As it turns out, Pinot, Trousseau, Cabernet and Grenache all come in red, white and grey, and even if the wines look white (three of the wines in the tasting do,) they’re not. They come from grapes with a little color in the skin, and which are genetically distinct from the red and white counterparts. So for $12.50 plus tax and gratuity, you can tune in at 2:00 pm this Saturday to get the scoops on the mysterious grey grapes and the wines people make from them.
