thurs16Post Xmas Steals, $15 and Under | Thursday, January 16 | 6:30 to 8pm | $15
Of course we’re still drinking good wine after the holiday frenzy has died down!  The question is, what to open?  Over the last couple months we’ve been pulling out special (pricey…) bottles with abandon, figuring now’s the time to share, not hoard, The Best.  But truth be told, there are plenty of modest wines that deliver pleasure, complexity, and terroir, too. We’ll showcase authentic steals from around the globe – southern Italy and France are sure to make an appearance, and own Washington State way over-delivers.  We’ll check out second labels (bumped from a winery’s ‘grand vin’), and gems made by cooperative cellars.  Buying the least expensive wine from a great producer is always a safe bet… The best buys of 2019 are still out there, and nothing’s more fun than bumping into a wine that tastes more expensive than it is!

thurs30France’s Last Frontier? The Wines of Jura, Savoie and Bugey | Thursday, January 30 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
It once thought that if you knew Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Champagne, you knew French wine. Then Loire, Rhône and Beaujolais (the Nouveau version) were ‘discovered’ and all was again right in the world of French wine. But wait! There was also to come Alsace, Languedoc-Roussillon, Provence and, of course, Cahors and the wines of Southwest France. And now . . . there is more! Tucked into the eastern edge of France up against the Swiss border is Jura, Savoie, and Bugey, perhaps France’s last frontier of wine to be understood and enjoyed. Even by French standards this is a relatively obscure region with grapes which are unfamiliar such as Altesse, Jacquère, Mondeuse, Roussette, Poulsard, Savagnin, and Trousseau. We will visit all three regions and sample the grapes in all their styles – sparking, white, red, rosé and the rare Vin Jaune. Come join us and discover the most exciting, hot new region for many of today’s top sommeliers. What about Corsica you say? . . . stay tuned! Purchase tickets online.
