As much as we honor Bordeaux and Rioja and Piedmont for being long-standing wine producers, there are places with perhaps less notoriety that have been at it rather longer. we can’t fit them all into one tasting, but this month, our Last Sunday of the Month tasting features a few spots that wine has been produced since long before some of the more conspicuous appellations. We’ll trot through parts of Italy well north of Barolo and Barbaresco, and sneak around the Adriatic into Slovenia and Croatia, and taste some grapes native to the regions, some of whom are grandparents of the wines we drink centuries later. Our friend and erstwhile coworker Megan Nelson joins us at 3:30 on Sunday, February 26th, when we’ll taste four curiosities and dishes we’ve paired with them specifically for your dining and tasting pleasure. It’s $35 plus tax and tip to join us, the tastes are generous, the food is tasty, the education is both broad and deep, and the company is delightful. If you’d like to join us, call us at (520) 326-9363 and we’ll save you a seat at the table. We hope you can join us.
