This month’s Last Sunday tasting features four wines in the context of climate change- what happens when the temperature goes up, how wineries adapt to large-scale changes in the weather, and so on. And in the long term, there’ll be copious amounts of adjustment, but right now, we’re focused on wine that’s already been made. On Sunday, we’ll taste four wines, some who’re taking advantage of the warming trend, some who are mitigating it, but all of which, mercifully, are quite tasty. We’ll be making food pairings for the wines as well, which you can pick up on Saturday (we’re still not able to open on Sundays, so this will be another Zoom-only tasting) alongside your four samples, and then you can log in to join us as we talk about what we usually talk about on the last Sunday of the month- wine- and something we occasionally touch on- how climate change is affecting the wine industry.
You’re familiar by now with the process: call us at (520) 326-9363 and we’ll set aside a set of samples for you, food and wine both, and you can join from the comfort of your home on Zoom at 3:30 this Sunday, the 26th. All it will cost you is $35 plus tax and tip, and you’ll learn a little something about how wines are affected by the rising temperatures around the globe, plus you’ll taste four really good wines, plus you’ll get a discount on the wines you fall in love with. Give us a call and reserve your samples and snacks.
THE TASTING BEGINS ON ZOOM AT 3:30 PM ON SunDAY, June 26th. THE ZOOM MEETING NUMBER FOR THE TASTING IS 893 3993 9258, AND THE PASSCODE is 099877.
