Please join us tonight from 5:30 to 7:30 for our weekly wine tasting. This week David from Vehrs Wines will be pouring three interesting Italian wines. The lineup includes:

  • Maso Poli Pinot Grigio Trentino DOC - Bouquet with a pleasing nose of pear, dry with a harmonious flavor and balanced finish
  • La Salette Valpolicella Classico DOC - Fresh bouquet with a fruit nose with cherry notes, soft with balanced acidity
  • Lechthaler Teroldego Rotaliano DPO - Bright nose of ripe black cherry, flavor is smooth with cherry, black raspberry, earth, and a touch of spice with ample acidity and medium tannins.

As usual the tasting is complimentary, with special pricing on beverages we are pouring.

White Burgundy; Wine Doesn’t Get Much Better Than This ($15)

I must say being a fan I’m constantly tasting these delicious whites and I can’t think of an off vintage in years. That said, the 2012′s are sublime. The only problem is quantity as many growers were down over 50%. Always one of your favorite white tastings, again, these are sure to please………………..big time.
