It’s not remotely unusual to see Bordeaux and Burgundy varietals planted in California, or to see Spanish or Rhone varietals planted throughout the New World, but over the years, the lines have been blurred enough that many people couldn’t even tell you where Malbec originated; as far as they’re concerned, it’s an Argentine grape.
Not that you see much Sylvaner grown outside of Germany, or even Franken, but this week, we’ll taste four wines that are the hallmarks of their appellations, each coming from its original home turf. The tasting happens this Saturday, October 2, at 2:00 pm, in the Zoomosphere, though we thank you all for your feedback about in-person tastings and we’re working feverishly toward making those happen again. For a mere $15 plus tax and tip, you can taste along with us and learn a little something besides. Call us at 326-9363 to reserve your set of tasting samples.
The tasting begins on zoom at 2:00 pm on Saturday, october 2. The Zoom meeting number for the tasting is 825 1036 4516. The passcode will is 459418.
