Burgundy VIEW MENU
The queen of France’s wines, Burgundy, is known for femininity, elegance, finesse and balance. Here, the finicky Pinot Noir and versatile Chardonnay reign supreme. Tiny parcels of vineyards are carved from the landscape in some of the world’s most treasured terrain.
Tuesday, September 6th
Piedmont VIEW MENU
The famous northern Italy region known for opulent wines, white truffles and wonderful cheeses. The villages of Alba, Asti and the hills of the Langhe make for great ready to drink wines that we will explore.
Tuesday, September 13th
Austria VIEW MENU
The unique wines of Austria have long stood in the shadow of her neighbor, Germany, but it is time to shine a spotlight on these not-to-be-overlooked beauties. Gruner Veltliner is the most prominent grape in the country, although many other aromatic varietals, both white and red, are breaking out. Note how the Austrian flag, the mandatory decal on all bottle caps, reflects a sense of pride and craftsmanship in winemaking. Cheers to discovery!

Southern Italy VIEW MENU
The southern provinces of Italy are known for robust, hearty reds and crisp dry whites. The regions of Puglia and Campagnia have been making wine for four thousand years, and the rich soils and temperate climate are perfect for grape growing.
Tuesday, September 27th Loire Valley VIEW MENU
Follow the Loire river through small towns and picturesque castles all the way to the ocean, and you will taste through a broad spectrum of wines. One of our perennial favorites, the menu features Muscadet, Chenin Blanc for whites and Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir for reds.
Tuesday, October 4th Tuscany VIEW MENU
Regarded as the birthplace of the Renaissance with its influence on the arts and sciences, there is only one Tuscany. The landscape of rolling hills, trellised vineyards, picturesque seasides and historic architecture is also home to many fine wines. Tonight we feature some Toscana favorites!
Tuesday, October 11th Jura/Savoie VIEW MENU
France’s easternmost wine regions of Jura and Savoie are located in the hills and valleys of the French Alps. The lofty vineyards often grow Chardonnay with verve, but the highlight is the multitude of other wines. Whites are often steely and stony, while ruby-colored reds are spicy and bursting with just-ripe fruit.
Tuesday, October 18th Veneto VIEW MENU
With the Alps protecting it from harsh climates, the northeastern Italian region of Veneto produces wines that are truly special. The region is neither the warmer Mediterranean to the south nor the colder Germanic regions to the north. It is literally and figuratively right in the middle with its culture, cuisine, and winemaking. Venetian wines span from the powerful red Amarone, to the light and bubbly Prosecco.
Tuesday, October 25th Rhône Valley VIEW MENU
France’s Rhône Valley is known for robust Syrah, fruity Grenache and the aromatic Viognier. The Northern Rhône Valley and the Southern Rhône Valley make very different wines stylistically. Many of the distinctions are in the “blend.” Winemakers choose to blend grapes together to create the perfect balance of character.
Tuesday, November 1st Alto Adige VIEW MENU
Alto Adige, located in Northeast Italy, was part of Austria up until the end of WWI. Today the land of Südtirol (South Tyrol), as its called in German, still retains much of its historic character and has become a cultural and viticultural melting pot. Whites tend to be full-bodied and aromatic, while reds are subtle and lighter in body.
