JANUARY 16, Jake ● Blue Spoon’s “Judgement of Paris

Half California wines and half French wines in a blind tasting-esque.

The Date: May 24, 1976. The Plan: Showcase that French wines were far superior to their California counterparts. We go back in time, to showcase wines from both regions, and let you be the judge!

 

MARCH 19, Tom ● Wines that Begin with ‘B’

This tasting is brought to you by the letter B! Many wines, wine regions, and wineries have been named with words that start with B. From Barbaresco to Beaujolais to Bierzo… We will travel far, yet never leave our beloved "B".

 

APRIL 16, Jake ● The Finicky Grape: Pinot Noir from Around the World

Pinot Noir has long been termed the most difficult grape to grow. With each winemaker and wine region, comes great variation. We will taste and discuss this “finicky grape” from around the world to find your favorite.

 

MAY 21, Tom ● Loire Valley

The longest river in France, The Loire, stretches over 1000 kilometers. Throughout its range, many different types of wines are produced. We will taste a diverse selection of wines from the region, from Sancerre in the east to Muscadet in the west.

 

JUNE 18, Jake & Greg ● Patio Pounders & Celebrating the (Almost) Summer Solstice

Basking on the patio is the easy part! Finding a wine to pair, not so much. Let us discover, together, some great wines that go great with grillin’ or perhaps for some refreshing summer chuggin’. Held outdoors on our patios, weather permitting.

 

AUGUST 20, Tom ● Galicia

Referred to as "Green Spain," Galicia is the northwest tip of Iberia, just above the northern border of Portugal. The relatively
mountainous region, originally planted to vines by Roman slaves, is being recognized more and more as a world class wine growing region. 

 

SEPTEMBER 17, Jake ● Up-and-Coming Wine Regions

Sure, you’ve got the big guns: France, Italy, and California, but what about the little guys? Israel, South Africa, and Chile are all making incredible wines, but who knew? We will taste a diverse array of wine from the up-and-coming wine regions.


OCTOBER 15, Tom ● Island Wines

A diverse range of wines are produced on islands throughout the world. We will explore some of the greats from Sicily, Madeira, Mallorca, and more, discussing the history of the areas and the grapes they grow there.
