Tuesday, Sept 1st Crisp Whites VIEW MENU
Just because the season's coming to an end, doesnít mean that itís time to stash away all your bottles of white. That being said, it wonít be long until weíre busting out our winter coats. Extend your summer with some crisp wines from both the Old World and New.
Tuesday, Sept 8th BBQ & Wine VIEW MENU
Although one doesnít often associate barbecue with wine, that doesnít mean they donít pair great together. Who says that zinfandel doesnít pair with smokey BBQ sauce? Join us for a (post) Labor Day celebration!
Tuesday, Sept 15th Tempranillo VIEW MENU
Mostly known as the Spanish noble grape used in Rioja, Tempranillo is now grown all over the world in places like the United Sates, Argentina, and South Africa. The black grape, commonly blended with Garnacha and Carginan, produces wines with notes of plums, dark berries, and leather.
Tuesday, Sept 22nd Burgundy VIEW MENU
Burgundy is, in some ways, the most terroir-driven region in France; immense attention is paid to the area of origin, and in which of the regionís 400 types of soil a wineís grapes are grown. The most famous wines produced here are complex and elegant red wines made from Pinot noir grapes and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.
Tuesday, Sept 29th Mosel VIEW MENU
Presumably the most celebrated German wine region, the Mosel produces the best Riesling in the world. The combination of the steep hills, river beds, and cool climate attribute to the crisp, refreshing taste of the Rieslings. Mosel wines are also known to have an intense bouquet and are extremely well-balanced.
Tuesday, Oct 6th Italian Bubbles VIEW MENU
Did you know that there are more sparkling Italian wines then Prosecco? All jokes aside, Italian vineyards produce great bubbly that range from dry red Lambrusco to the sweet and easy-drinking Asti. And, yes, there will also be Prosecco.
Tuesday, Oct 13th Jura, Savoie, Bugey VIEW MENU
Franceís easternmost wine regions of Jura, Savoie and Bugey 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, Oct 20th Merlot VIEW MENU
Although Merlot is often used as a blending grape for its ability to soften tannins in Old World viticulture, winemakers are more frequently making varietal wines with the grape. Countries like the United States and Chile produce velvety Merlots with cherry and vanilla aromas, which makes the wine very versatile in pairing with food!
Tuesday, Oct 27th 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, Nov 3rd U.S.A. VIEW MENU
Since this Wine Series dinner will fall on the same day as Election Day here in the United States, we figured why not celebrate our freedom with some American wine classics. Weíre talking California Chardonnay, Oregon Pinot Noir, and more. While we donít have the history that Europe does in terms of viticulture, some of these New World wines might give the Old World a run for their money.
