Abbreviations are rampant, and we don’t always know what they mean. Some are particular to a field of study, some are slang for the text-laden communiqués of Generation Z- if you’re not privy to the lingo of whomever’s generating the terminology, it can be difficult to know what the thrust of it all is. This week, we’ll taste four wines, each with a different classification, and we’ll find out a bit about what those classifications mean. We’ll pour four tasty reds, though, and with interesting guests talking about each of them.
Things have bounced around a bit due to supply issues- the wines for this tasting have changed at least twice- but Saturday we’ve got four wines lined up for you and doggone it, they’re good. You can reserve a seat or a set of samples by calling us at (520) 326-9363. The tasting begins at 2:00 on the 11th, and costs $15 plus tax and tip.
THE TASTING BEGINS ON ZOOM AT 2:00 PM ON SATURDAY, June 12. THE ZOOM MEETING NUMBER FOR THE TASTING IS 849 0678 0297 and the passcode is 047985.
