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

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.
