We’ve all been there- the wine list like a phone book, the snooty sommelier, the hodgepodge of foreign-sounding words, rife with accents and letters we’d never put next to each other.
“I guess we’ll have the Cabernet,” we say, because at least we can pronounce that, and the somm returns with something passable, but which we’d never have ordered had we gotten past the nerves induced by the unfamiliar. What’s a Côt? What’s a Verdicchio? This week, with the tasting falling on Halloween, we thought it only appropriate to taste some wines we might be scared to order. Join us at 2:00 on Halloween with your samples at the ready, and for only $12.50 plus tax and tip, you’ll taste your way through four wines you might not have ordered otherwise.
You can find the tasting order and pricing sheet here.
The tasting begins at 2:00 pm, Saturday the 31st, and the zoom meeting number is 854 9510 7284. The passcode is 565071.
