thurs28Best Vino for BBQ | Thursday, June 28 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
Grilling season means it’s finally warm enough to light up that coal, wood, or gas stove and stay outside, tending to dinner.  Pretty much anything can be grilled -chicken or beef, pork or lamb, salmon or whitefish, shellfish, veggies of all kinds, the choices are endless.  Similarly, the pairing options for these summer treats can range through the whole gamut of wine choices, from bubbles to a crisp Chardonnay for seafood or chicken, a Cabernet or Nebbiolo for hamburgers or steak.  When slathering on a sweet BBQ sauce, we might reach for juicy Zinfandel or uber-ripe Aussie Shiraz.  And there’s always Malbec from the country where the best free range beef and master grillers abound—Argentina.  We’ll present a range our favorite whimsical wines for these lively gatherings coming our way.  BBQ bites will be lined up to test our taste!

thurs12Our French Favorites | Thursday, July 12 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
In honor of Bastille Day on July 14th, we here at Plum Market Ann Arbor North Campus want to join in the celebration. The Wine Department team loves all things French, and oftentimes when suggesting wines to our guests we find ourselves attracted to that side of the room more than any other.  Don’s predilection for Southern Rhone, Tony’s love of Beaujolais, Thomas’s fondness for Burgundy, Shawn’s weakness for White Bordeaux, and Wine Team Leader Jorge’s penchant for all of France per se.  We’ll choose our favorite representations from France’s most important wine regions: Alsace and the Loire will be there, Northern Rhône also, and even Savoie will make an appearance.  And, of course, we’ll welcome you with the mandatory Champagne toast!!

thurs19Best of Little Guy Wine Company | Thursday, July 19 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
In the spring, we attend as many wine ‘trade shows’ as we can, open to those in in the retail or restaurant business.  We look to be wowed by special wines, and then bring them to you. Lucky task! Ever on the prowl for small scale artisanal producers from all over the world, we were excited to see Little Guy Wine Company knock it out of the park. Jorge Lopez-Chavez, Tony Donato and Madeline Triffon tasted dozens of wines and were inspired to showcase the best. Picking from the show’s 150 wines won’t be easy, but you can expect appearances by top producers such as St. Innocent and Lioco (from our West Coast), Remelluri (from Rioja), an Austrian beauty made with a grape called Orangetraube, Iuzzolini from Calabria, Domaine Gruhier from Burgundy, among many others… Purchase Tickets Online.

 

                               

 

thurs26Rosé/Rosado/Rosato, Part 2 | Thursday, July 26 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
Welcome back to sampling great dry pink wine! We had so much fun during our first Rosé wine event of the year back in May that we decided it was in your best interest for us to hold a second one, before the hottest month of August.  This time, the range of styles will be quite eclectic – instead of focusing solely on France, we’ll include wine from other rosé loving countries like Spain, Italy, Austria, and of course the USA.  France will be included, of course, just not be the main attraction. A friendly suggestion: attendance for our spring rosé tasting was a packed house, so make sure you purchase your tickets in advance. Purchase Tickets Online.
