For those of you who intend to offer your guests a meal of great substance this holiday season, nothing will set it off like a wine of great substance alongside it. This week Kevin opens four lush and opulent reds.
Feast offers a wine tasting every Saturday, another on the last Sunday of each month, and occasional wine dinners. Subscribe to our email list and you'll be the first to know about all of them.
Don't you dare. You're too smart to be hoodwinked by a fictional character in a book and movie that came out fourteen years ago. Just because Miles of Sideways disparaged Merlot doesn't mean you need to. This week, Kevin pours you four Merlots of different styles, each of which is suited to someone's holiday table.
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.
It's not just that it happens to be an appropriate pun to the season; Grenache happens to be a perfect red wine to accompany your holiday spread. There are lighter, softer ones to accompany turkey; intense and focused ones to handle the richest roast beef, and a spectrum of others to go with whatever veggie, fish or fowl you're considering putting on your table.
New Year's Eve isn't the only time to drink sparkling wine, but it sure is a lovely excuse! Come taste four sparkling wines from four different countries to drink now, or on New Year's Eve, or any time thereafter.
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.
Sure, everyone's got advice on what to drink with Thanksgiving dinner. But who can clue you in on the fun things to consider AFTERWARD?
Last week we tasted whites for Thanksgiving, and this week, it's reds. Four wines fit for your holiday table, without breaking the bank.
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.
While it may be a drizzly week, we Tucsonans know that Rosé weather lasts well into October, and it really doesn't even hurt to have some around come Thanksgiving.
