We’ve spoken in wine tastings past over and over about coastal influence on wine, but seldom do we touch on rivers. If you look, though, you’ll notice that the greatest wine regions around the world are split or even crisscrossed with rivers, and there are reasons for that. It’s not necessarily the irrigation piece that people think, either. A river serves as a gigantic air conditioner as well. Sure, a river contributes to the water table, but it really works its magic reflecting sunlight and heat on a chilly day, or cooling and humidifying hot, arid climates. This Saturday, we’ll talk about rivers and their effects, and the river valleys that are loaded with a whole spectrum of vineyards, as well as the wines produces there. For a mere $15 plus tax and tip, you’ll taste four wines and chat it up with some fun and knowledgeable wine folk. The tasting begins at 2 pm on Saturday the 17th, and to reserve your set of samples, all you’ll need to do is give us a call at 326-9363. We hope you’ll join us.
The tasting begins on zoom at 2:00 pm on Saturday, july 17. The Zoom meeting number for the tasting is 840 3693 5262, and the passcode is 906171.
