They’ve each got their own varietal or two- Burgundy is planted predominantly to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; Mendoza and Cahors to Malbec; Chianti to Sangiovese. And while all the various and sundry appellations have other varietals intermingled, we’re always delighted with the spectrum of flavors and aromas generated by each of the little microclimates that populates the Loire Valley. This week we’ll pull the corks on two whites and two reds, all dramatically different, but all unmistakably wines of the Loire. We’ll taste wines from the eastern, the western and the central Loire River Valley and hear their stories, both here at Feast in person and remotely as well, and we hope it sounds as appealing to you as it does to us.
By now, you know how this works: call us at (520) 326-9363 and we’ll set aside a set of samples for you, and you can join us here in the private dining room or from anywhere in the world on Zoom at 2:00 this Saturday, the 16th. All it will cost you is $15 plus tax and tip, and you’ll get wine and education, hand in hand, plus a discount on the wines you fall in love with. Come check it out!
THE TASTING BEGINS ON ZOOM AT 2:00 PM ON SATURDAY, APRIL 16. THE ZOOM MEETING NUMBER FOR THE TASTING IS 886 9679 0735, AND THE PASSCODE is 888465.
