September Alfresco Summer Wine Tasting

Our next summer wine tasting is Escape to Cape Town on Thursday, September 17, 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. with Wine Host Ron Toth of D’Andrea Wines. Just $45 per person!

Escape to Cape Town features wines from South Africa and its the first to feature the wines of just one winery, Robertson Winery. The Robertson estate sees mild days of unlimited sunshine combined with prevailing sea breezes which cool off the grapes by mid afternoon. This tasting will give you a chance to compare and contrast five superb varietals from the Cape Town region and made with a singular philosophy in these wines:
  1. Robertson Chardonnay - Balance of fresh citrus fruits and rich melon characters.
  2. Robertson Chenin Blanc - Powerful varietal flavors of pineapple, granadilla, melon & green apple.
  3. Robertson Shiraz - Freshly crushed black pepper aromas with hints of cinnamon and cloves on the nose.
  4. Robertson Pinotage - Rich aroma of plum and ripe banana, chocolate coffee and mocha.
  5. Robertson Gewurztraminer - Full bodied wine with honeysuckle and rose petals in bouquet.
Call 412.323.9394, email Gene Lucente, or visit the Priory Hotel Front Desk: 614 Pressley Street, Deutschtown, Pittsburgh, PA 15212.

We've had tremendous success with these tastings and are hoping to carry them into October and November. Check our Blog frequently for more updates!
