June wine tasting- reds and whites from Bordeaux

Hi, wine tasters. We all know a little something about wine. Yes, the ancient Greeks filled their amphorae with wine, and yes it made its way with Greek slaves to what is now Italy, where it was refined and finessed and it evolved into something new and complex. Then the Romans took grapevines with them […]

Aussie wines from Epicurean Imports

Well, Feastlings, I must say I feel a little embarrassed at spending last month extolling the virtues of bright, fresh white wines, only to turn around and send you a note about this month’s offerings, which are predominantly great big reds.  My only excuse is that these wines all come from Australia, and it’s most […]

Pinot Blancs from everywhere.

Hi ho, Feastlings. I don’t know about you, but I felt a little bit gypped.  Last weekend I left work in a sweatshirt, and by Monday, the thermometer had already hit 92 degrees.  Why someone who dreads the heat like I do lives in Tucson year after year, I couldn’t say.  I get sleepy.  I […]

Really, it’s okay- it’s Merlot

Island Wine

If I worked for an importer, I’d lean strongly toward Winebow.  Ever since Feast opened, I’ve gone to the industry wine tastings, and year after year, when I go and taste hundreds of wines at a time, there’s a table at which I find myself shaking my head and wondering how I can like every […]

Trust Your Importer- Empty Glass

Greetings, Thanksgivers. Here’s an early note to let you know that if you and yours need a break from the Holiday mayhem, we’ll still be having our Last Sunday Wine Tasting here at Feast.  A brief background: about two years ago, I went into a little restaurant in Tempe called Caffé Boa for lunch, and […]

Franco Serra

Hello, Feastlings. Those of you who’ve been attending our monthly wine tastings for a while know that we have a Trust Your Importer Series.  While we were considering Scoperta Imports, we realized that the wines of one of their wineries, Franco Serra, were such remarkable across-the-board values that it would be foolish not to dedicate […]
