Hi ho, Feastlings.
If you live in New York or San Francisco, it’s not unusual to have a smattering- or a boatload- of wine importers in your area, but in Tucson, they’re few and far between. Or as far between as you can be in a small town like Tucson. We know of two of them, and many of you already know them, but don’t get to taste their wines all that often. This Sunday, Sariya Jarasviroj-Brown will be holding court, sharing stories of the behind-the-scenes work of an importer and the distribution chain, but more importantly, sharing her wines. Sariya’s a curious sort, in that while the wines she imports are primarily Austrian and Hungarian, she’s also the ambassador in all the other states she works in for two of our favorite Arizona wineries, so we’ll taste and talk about those as well.
This Sunday, January 29th, at 3:30, Sariya will be here with two Austrian treats and two from our own back yard, and we’ll be pairing food with them and learning about wine and wineries, geography, geology and meteorology, plus pull the curtain back on importing as well. It will all come with delicious treats and wines that are perfect for drinking now and for cellaring for the future. Call us at (520) 326-9363 and we’ll make enough for you as well.
You can see the pricing and tasting order here.
