Every wine list has them- there are six “Noble Grapes” of winemaking, the wines that create the paradigm we inhabit when we dine out or stop at a bottle shop: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling. It’s a rare event not to find the majority of them available by the glass at any given restaurant, by the bottle on any given shelf, including in our own homes. This month, our Last Sunday tasting brings you four varietals that, despite not being Noble, are unquestionably delicious and downright interesting. Sure, the Noble Grapes are Noble for a reason, but every now and again, it’s nice to taste something- nay, drink something- that you haven’t had a million times before.
As you’re likely aware, we’re still closed on Sundays, so once again, this will be a tasting where we package up the food pairings and talk you through them over Zoom. You can call us at (520) 326-9363 and we’ll set aside the tastes and the snacks for you, and for $35 plus tax and tip, you can pick it all up on Saturday the 24th, take it home and chill it, and then pull it out on Sunday the 25th, log in and meet up virtually with your very real wine buddies, heating up your food pairings, and drinking wine you may never have had before, or at the very least, didn’t have last night.
THE TASTING BEGINS ON ZOOM AT 3:30 PM ON SunDAY, SEPTEMBER 25th. THE ZOOM MEETING NUMBER FOR THE TASTING IS 816 4232 1054 and the passcode is 510486.
