When Randall Grahm showed up for a wine dinner, it was a big deal. The original Rhône Ranger gracing your dining room is pretty cool. Curt Schalchlin of Sans Liege? Same thing. When a cult winemaker stops in, people’s ears prick up. Seldom, though, does the cult of personality thing happen with an importer. People have a respect for what they do, for sure, but over the past few years, people have become more and more accustomed to being able to pull the cork on one of the white label wines that Mary brings in from France, or Spain, or Italy and discovering not only excellent wine, but excellent wine at a huge value. We recognized it long ago, and have been sharing her wines with you, but when Eric Asimov sang her praises in his piece in the New York Times, Mary Taylor’s notoriety exploded. It’s already filling up, but there are still a handful of seats if you’d like to join Mary and the rest of us to talk about wine from small, authentic wineries that make wine for people, not for stacking up at the front of a Big Box wine retailer and not caring a whit whether you like it or ever buy it again. Dinner begins at 6 pm on Tuesday, March 15, and we’re tickled to have the honor of pairing our food with these exceptional wines.
