As the world gets smaller, people aren’t the only ones that shuffle back and forth from one continent to the next. It turns out that grape varietals do as well. And while we’ve seen Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir grown in California for long enough that it’s no longer a surprise to us, we still occasionally find ourselves confused at coming across, say, a California Nebbiolo or an Australian Zinfandel (both of which are out there, though neither of which is at this tasting.) This week, we’ll taste four varietals that come to us by way of vineyards in places you may not have expected. The tasting is on Saturday, February 27, at 2:00 pm, and is only $12.50 plus tax and tip. And the wines, despite hailing from mysterious places, are delicious. Call us at 326-9363 to reserve your set of samples.
The zoom tasting begins at 2:00 pm on Saturday, February 27th, and the meeting number is 827 7522 5578, and the passcode is 707965.
