We’ve done this any number of times before, and we’re more than likely going to do it again, because frankly, it merits being done. People regard Bordeaux as a wine Mecca, and with good reason, but in Bordeaux they make wines in a style particular to the region, reflecting the terroir of the place. As it happens, wines made in the US reflect an ethos and a sense of place as well. Be it the soil and sunlight, or be it the way people think of viticulture, wine and winemaking in their respective regions, it makes for a delightful variety. So this Saturday, we’ll be tasting two whites, one from Bordeaux and one from California; and two reds, one from Bordeaux and one from Washington. The tasting is $12.50 plus tax and tip, and it begins at 2:00 pm. You can swing by from Thursday afternoon until Saturday at 1:59 to grab your samples, and then hop on Zoom and taste along while you meet knowledgeable wine folk from all over the place. Give us a call at 326-9363 to reserve your set of tastes!
The zoom meeting number for the tasting is 875 8064 4195, and the passcode is 836656.
