Wine Tastings Continue into the Fall

Summer Wine Tastings Extended Into the Fall at The Grand Hall

Our summer wine tastings have been such a success that we are extending them into the fall and into the winter next year.

Our next wine tasting will be on Thursday, October 22, and will likely be inside at the Grand Hall, given the change in the weather. The starting time will change from 6:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., in response to requests from some of our guests from across the rivers who said that it was hard to get across town in time for a 6:00 p.m. start. As always, we will be pairing the wines with hors d'oeuvres prepared by our chefs Mike Henney and Pete Phillipy. Price is $45.00 per person.

We will also be hosting a tasting on November 19 in time to get you tuned up for Thanksgiving.

Our October wine host will be Joe Barsotti, from Barsotti Wines. Joe was our wine host at our inaugural event in May, when he showed off some really amazing wines from Southern Italy and Sicily.

This time, Joe will be showcasing wines "from around the world." They are -

Vina La Rosa La Palma Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Cachapoal Valley, Chile

X Winery Chardonnay 2007, Carneros

Vigneti VillaBella Ripasso Valpolicella Superiore Classico 2005, Verona (Not Pa)

Bodegas Finca Valpiedra Canto de Valpiedra Rioja 2005, Spain

Food pairings TBA.

We will be experimenting with some new sets in the Grand Hall to make the larger space a little more cozy - I think you'll all like it. Hope you can make it!
