For a country that’s not even as big as Arizona and New Mexico combined, there’s a surprising amount of diversity among French wines; from rustic country reds to austere whites, from elegant to funky- it’s all in there. When you consider the age of the country, it makes sense- city-states with different cultures and roving bands of Franks and Gauls all add up to a broad spectrum of varietals, styles and cultural approaches. This week, our old friend Megan joins us to talk about a bunch of fun wines from all over France, and we’re doing it 100% in person. As much as we’re aware that there are still those of you who prefer to join us remotely, switching back to in person tastings has so far brought forth only a limited number of dissatisfied folk, and honestly, we just don’t have the time or the staff to continue the Zoom tastings at the level we were doing before. We thank those of you who’d have preferred a remote tasting for your understanding.
If, on the other hand, you can join us here in person in the private dining room this Saturday, September 17, we’d love to have you here. The tasting begins at 2:00 pm, and for $15 plus tax and tip, you’ll get some delicious wine and some interesting discussion of four quite disparate types of wine from France.
You can reserve your seat by calling us at (520) 326-9363.
