What can we say? Our little wine world is decidedly northern hemisphere-centric. It is, of course, where winemaking began, and whatever is grown below the equator, grape-wise, is almost invariably something with a European progenitor. Still, the various and sundry wine regions within the South Pacific, South Africa and South America each have a distinct character that merits getting to know, and we know we’ve been focused on Western Europe of late. In the interest of diversity, this week we bring you four wines from four different southerly regions. Our friend Emilie joins us this Saturday, September 9, at 2:00 pm with wine from South Africa, Argentina, Chile and Australia, whereupon we’ll shoot the breeze about the various regions and varietals before us.
Bring $15 plus tax and tip, but before you do, give us a call at (520) 326-9363 and let us know your intentions, as it’s not Labor Day weekend anymore, so we’re a bit more likely to be busy. See you there. Or here, rather.
Meanwhile on the other side of the equator…
