There are various schools of winemaking. There’s the one that says to make wine that the critics like. There’s the one that says to make wine that’s consistent in style from vintage to vintage. There’s the one that says to make it big and opulent, and the one that says to please the broadest spectrum of potential buyers. This week, we look at the school that says to leave it alone. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. And whatever you do, don’t filter it. If you like a weird and funky wine with a little turbidity to it, this is your week. We’ll be opening four wines, none of which is fined or filtered, and all of which reflect a school of winemaking that says to let the wine speak for itself. The tasting will happen on Zoom this Saturday, November 7, at 2:00 pm, and will only set you back $12.50 plus tax and tip, and we’ll meet some great producers, importers and distributors. Give us a call at 326-9363 and reserve your set of samples, and then tune in on Saturday with your tasting shoes on.
