From your earliest wine experiences, you’ve likely tasted them, or at least heard of them: Chianti, of course; Barolo and Barbaresco; Soave and Valpolicella. There are Italian wines that are the staples of restaurants and wine shops that we’ve seen over and over again, but it’s estimated that there are nearly 2000 varietals growing in Italy, and even the official count of varietals included in standardized wine production is a solid six hundred-plus. So this week, we’ll be tasting a tiny percentage of them- four wines, to be exact. Some you’ve likely never heard of, and some are blends you’d never expect. Regardless, we feel confident in guessing you’ve never tried these wines before, so this Saturday, March 4, it’s your chance to join us at 2:00 and taste through some really interesting Italian wines. It’s the same format it’s been for a while now- join us and our friend Emilie at 2:00 pm, and for $15 plus tax and trip you’ll learn a little something about some relatively obscure Italian wines and taste them as well, plus you’ll get the customary wine tasting discount that attendees receive. Call us at (520) 326-9363 to have us save you a glass, a chair and four curious tastes of wine.
