thurs1Just Back from South America! Jorge’s Faves from Chile, Argentina & Uruguay | Thursday, November 1 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
South America is the world’s 2nd most wine-productive continent (after Europe), with Argentina and Chile nipping at each other’s heels.  Price-value is unequalled – we’ll get up to speed on current South American steals through fine, well-established wineries and some which are beginning to make waves.  We will explore Malbec from Argentina, Carménère from Chile, Tannat from Uruguay, the obligatory Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay will be represented, as will more obscure grapes like Bonarda, Torrontés, and País.

thurs15Our Thanksgiving – Fun, Fullproof Wines | Thursday, November 15 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
The Thanksgiving table brings everyone together, to break bread, revel in (or tolerate…) each other’s company, and raise a glass – whether they’re a wine aficionado or not.  The meal itself is both savory and sweet (marshmallow, yams, cranberry…).  So – how to bridge sophisticated palates and sometime or newbie tasters, with wines that are both interesting and delicious?  Our staff has collaborated on an array of very diverse options, full of pure fruit tones (good for the sweet foods) but laced with intriguing terroir. Purchase Tickets Online.

 

 

thurs29Portugal and its Wine Diversity | Thursday, November 29 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
Portugal is a country in the Iberian Peninsula which has had a long history of winemaking and also consumption.  The legendary Ports and Madeiras are of course first and foremost, with the refreshing Vinho Verde as possibly the second most imporatnt export.  But Portugal also has a few notable regions like the Dao, Douro, and Alentejo, not to mention the region around Lisboa where we might find some fruit-forward wines at tremendous values.  We will jumble through some of these regions and try some of the grapes which do not roll easily out of our tongues.  Many Ann Arborites have visited this relatively inexpensive country lately and come back asking us for its wines, tonight we’ll get to explore together. Purchase Tickets Online.
