Yes, last week we tasted classics- all wines we’re abundantly familiar with, all made the old-fashioned way, and all expertly executed. This Saturday, October 16, we’ll pour four quirky little oddballs. Maybe they’re varietals you’ve never heard of, or maybe they’re one-of-a-kind combinations. Whatever they are, they’re wines that most people would likely pass by, purely out of a lack of familiarity, so if you were here in the shop, we’d ask you to trust us. You’re not, though, and through the wonders of modern science and technology, you’re now able to taste all four of them and decide for yourself how much you trust us, whether you think these wines are as cool as we think they are, and if we’re lucky, you’ll order some to enjoy without us around. For a mere $15 plus tax and tip, we’ll set you up with sample pours and a link to tune into so you can learn a little something about these marvelous finds. Call us at 326-9363 and we’ll pour you a set of samples.
The tasting begins on zoom at 2:00 pm on Saturday, october 16. The Zoom meeting number for the tasting is 810 4499 1375. The passcode is 371052.
