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.
While our Last Sunday of the month customarily falls on the Last Sunday of the Month, this year we’ve made an exception. Aware as we are that many of you might have plans on the 25th of December, we moved this month’s Last Sunday tasting to the penultimate Sunday.
This Sunday being the last Sunday of the month, it’s time again for our monthly fancy-pants wine tasting. Not that Kevin’s weekly tastings aren’t full of tasty wine and snacks and information, but once a month we like to open up a few higher-end bottles, and pair them with a few little plates of food meant to go specifically with each wine.
Hello, Feastlings. Rather than write an intro to this month’s Last Sunday wine tasting, I’ll paste this from the OregonLive.com website: “In the early 2000s, Oregon wine country’s brightest rising star was Jimi Brooks, a restless world traveler with a magnetic personality, a large group of close friends and a weakness for Moto Guzzi motorcycles, Unimog lorries and […]
Hello, Feastlings. While there is undeniably art and craft in making wine from a single varietal- some might argue more so even than in making a blend- I’d argue that blending, while it still allows for an expression of the fruit as well as the place it’s grown, also allows for more of an expression […]
Hello, Feastlings. There are people we like. There are wines we like. Once in a while, there’s an overlap- someone we enjoy brings in wines that we consistently admire for their level of quality and value. Dario Soldan is one of those people, a smart, knowledgeable character who brings us wines that we’ve not seen […]
Hello, Feastlings. This Sunday, June 26th, our Last Sunday tasting has us tasting wines from the Pacific Northwest. Mike Galkin leads us in a tasting that will whisk us away to a place where we can imagine drizzling rain and a thermometer that doesn’t stretch past 85 degrees. If you’d like to join us, please […]
Hello, Feastlings. We periodically host a tasting with the theme, “trust your importer.” It’s an effort to get you to take a look at the bottle you’re unsure of and take a chance based on the fact that, while you may not know the producer of the wine, you trust the company that imports it. […]
Hello, Feastlings. Our good friend Andy Ramirez joins us this Sunday for our Last Sunday of the Month tasting, and it’s virtually assured we’ll fill up, if not because so many of you already know and enjoy Andy, then because Pinot Noir is among the most heavily attended of our tastings. This Sunday, April 24, […]
Hello, Feastlings. Our end-of-the-month tasting this month will be led by our erstwhile dining room manager, Dylan Higgins. Dylan now works for Alliance beverage, and he’ll be here this Sunday, February 28, at 3:30 to pour six wines for you that hail from Southern France. There’s some tasty stuff to be had here, and relatively […]
Hello, Feastlings. Poor Sicily. While people clamor for Barolo and Barbaresco, Chianti Classico and SuperTuscans, Sicilian wines have yet to get their day in the limelight. But two months ago, I came into the restaurant on a Monday when we were closed, and met two guys who brought in a whole spectrum of Sicilian wines. […]
