A trip to Rioja where you don't sit next to anyone on a crowded plane.
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
Meet Andrew Januik. Drink his delicious wines. Eat the food we've made expressly to eat with them.
Wine from all over, and a menu that accompanies it.
You probably know his work from Domaine Serene or from Shea Wine Cellars, but it's likely you haven't seen these wines yet. Come meet Drew, taste his wine, and walk away happy.
Welcome to the dark side.
Yep. It's a fancy dinner. With fancy wine. At Feast. You remember- we do that once in a while.
Here's another reason to turn that bottle of wine around- look at the back label and see who the importer is. Is it Folio? Come see why it's worth taking a chance on that bottle you don't recognize from the importer you do recognize.
If there's one importer that ties it all together and effectively blurs the line between those of us who are complete wine geeks and those who just like a really good glass of wine, it's Rosenthal Wine Merchant. And if there's one person who exemplifies that experience in corporeal form, it's Joanie Karapetian. This is your big chance.
Every so often a winery crosses our path who we feel can do no wrong. Le Due Terre, Friuli winery of wife and husband Silvana Forte and Flavio Basilicata, is one of those wineries. Christian Troy, who imports their wines, will be here pouring them alongside food pairings that border on dinner.
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.
