We have SOLD OUT for Bordeaux. Save the date for Rhones on Wednesday 10/30.
Let’s try something new… and a little more serious! Introducing a new series of serious tastings created by wine enthusiast Jack Brice.
This is a pre-pay event – purchase your $55 tasting/dinner with the link below.
Autumn is a little more serious than summer, and so our tastings are turning a little more serious too. Bordeaux is the most famous winemaking region in the world and we carefully chose good examples of ‘Left Bank’ and ‘Right Bank’ wines, including a Grand Cru, to help you determine which style you like better. The vintages available (2009 and 2010) are known to be some of the best in the past 50 years! We will taste the wines by themselves and then with food to see how the flavor profiles change. If you are interested in serious wines, treat yourself to this tasting!
