Dear Feastlings,

Syrah?  That comes from the Rhône Valley, or likely the Central Coast of California.  Sangiovese hails from Tuscany.  And so on.  We all have a notion where a varietal is supposed to grow, but it’s not always the case.  Grapes are marvelously adaptive and can grow in various locales, so we thought this week, we’d pour some wines for you that come from someplace other than what you’d expect.  Rkatsiteli?  That’s a Georgian grape, but it happens that they grow it in the Finger Lakes region as well.  Syrah comes from the northern reaches of the Rhône.  Or, alternatively, from Morocco.  Come join us with our pal Mike as we explore New York Rkatseteli, Moroccan Syrah, Venetian Cabernet Franc and Willcox Counoise.  The tasting is this Saturday, February 10th, at 2:00, and it’s only $18 plus tax and tip to explore some curious mismatches of varietal and place.  Call us at (520) 326-9363 to save your seat.
