Every now and again, in an effort to help you make informed decisions, we taste the wines of a single importer we admire so that when you find a wine you're unfamiliar with, looking at that back label can help you choose a wine you can trust, even when you don't know the wine itself.
Sunday Wine Tastings
Our Sunday wine tastings only occur on the last Sunday of each month, at 3:30 pm. Unlike our Saturday tastings, there are six wines rather than four, the wines have a broader range of quality and price, and each wine is accompanied by an amuse-bouche that’s specially made to compliment the wine. Again, reservations are required, and web and email reservations will not guarantee you a seat, to please make your reservation by calling (520) 326-9363.
Past Sunday Wine Tasting
In addition to our Saturday wine tastings, we step it up on the last Sunday of each month and host a tasting of six wines, some a little fancier than others, and offer food pairings alongside the wines. This month we’re joined by our old friend Dylan Higgins.
We know which wine tastings will sell out. The jaunts around Italy have their fan base; there’s no shortage of supporters of the wines of Southern France; the Willamette and the Napa Valleys each have their disciples, though admittedly there’s not much overlap there. This month, we thought it was time you’d tasted wines from places you’d written off.
Paul Rickert has long been a buddy of Feast’s. As a brand manager at one of our distributors for years, we’ve always admired his palate and his wine knowledge, as well as his charm, but when he partnered up with one of our long-time favorite importers of Italian wine, Enotec, the whole was greater than the sum of its parts.
By now you know about Kevin's penchant for making me cringe at the names he gives his wine tastings. This week it's one that he keeps in his back pocket to upset me each Independence day weekend.
On the last Sunday of each month we pick six wines that have something in common and offer you tastes, alongside of which we serve food pairings tailored to each wine. This month, Mike Galkin of Action Wine joins us.
It's a fine line between poor taste and being topical, so we're hoping that in spite of the Big Island's woes, the tasting that we decided to do weeks ago when it was a less serious situation still falls under "topical" rather than "in poor taste." Our friend and erstwhile dining room manager-turned-wine-rep leads a tasting of wines that all hail from volcanic soil of one type or another, from regions around the world.
Hello, Feastlings. Say what you will about France’s contribution to the world of wine (and you’ll justifiably say quite a bit,) the Franks and the Gauls weren’t exactly renowned for their viticulture. Wine came to France from its neighbor to the south. We’d guess you’re okay with that, since the only sort of tasting that […]
As our winter friends begin to drift back to their summer haunts and the day gets a teensy bit warmer, our thoughts turn to white wines- a little cleaner and lighter, a little lower alcohol so we can maybe have that afternoon glass when the thermometer hits 80° and not doze off before dinner's on the table.
Hello, Feastlings. This month’s Last Sunday tasting is here to show you the great strides that have been made in South American winemaking in recent years. Remember when all you could expect from that Chilean wine in the grocery store was that it wouldn’t break the bank and wouldn’t impress a soul? Those days are […]
