Eastern Euro Wines; Plavac From Croatia, Zilavka From Bosnia, Saperavi From Georgia…You Get the Idea ($15)
Friday, September 15th, 2017 4 pm – 7:30 pm @ Mt Tabor Fine Wines
You can pretty much get anything you want from around the globe. This is a very good thing for us winos. And so… we’re off to Eastern Europe. Bosnia, Croatia, Hungary, Georgia; Grapes? Furmint, Zilavka, Saperavi, Plavac………
I think it’s a beautiful thing to have the chance to taste strange grapes from even more mysteriously unknown areas of the world. But exploring for the sake of “geekiness” can lead to painful sensations when applied to one’s mouth. That’s what we’re here for!
Like I’ve said for many years, all the wine we taste with wineries or reps is NOT terrific. Some can downright stink, be overly tart, have tannins that could rip the flesh from your mouth and… well you get the pic. We are technically your swill filter. We taste through many horrendous wines to protect you from unpleasant experiences. So I guess you could call it our quality guarantee.
