Wine Dinners

Occasionally, we’re graced with a winemaker or winery representative who’s passing through Tucson. When they do, we’ll highlight their wines with a special dinner of four or five courses with a guest speaker- a winemaker, an importer or a winery representative.

Past Wine Dinner

Louis/Dressner tasting with Josefa Concannon

We usually relegate our wine tastings to the last Sunday of the month, and once in a while, a winemaker or an importer trots through Tucson and we’re lucky enough to pick that person’s brain in the fleeting moments they’re here in town. This one will have healthy pours and small plates.

Ethica Wines dinner with Paolo Bressan

Every now and again, we get the chance to put on a wine dinner with some really good wines.  And once in a while, there's a clever and knowledgeable sort who puts on a dinner with us.  What's more, we occasionally get to do a dinner with wines that have an excellent quality-to-price ratio.  It's not often, however, that we get all three in one dinner.

Being a wine rep means spending your day […]

Spotlight Brands wine dinner with Robin Gerber

A few months ago, Robin Gerber came through town.  She's one of the founding partners of Spotlight brands, who represents some of the most prestigious wineries in California, and while some of the brands they represent come at the price that notoriety commands, some of them are still under the proverbial radar and are consequently a particularly excellent value.
