July and August Wine Tastings – Miracles Do Happen!
Join us Fridays from 4 pm – 7:30 pm at 4316 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR 97215!
Friday, July 13th: Summer Sparkling Wine Roundup ($15)
Refreshing is the theme! Sparklers from Champagne, French not Champagne, Italian Prosecco types, you get the idea. As we warm up for the summer we strive to provide a cool place to come and taste delicious wines, and…….have great conversation
Friday, July 20th: The Vinous Stars of Spain ($15)
Just got a new container from Jose Pastor Selections. Some we have never poured so look for new, very exciting things from Spain.
Friday, July 27th: “My Recent Trip to Greek Wine Country” by John Soares ($15)
Our buddy, John Soares, PDX rep supreme, just got back from travels to many of the best wine regions of Greece. He came back so excited we had to give him a Friday tasting slot. Never seen the boy like this. We’ll taste wines from many of Greece’s finest areas.
Friday, August 3rd: Provence. So Much Beauty in the Landscape and the Wine ($15)
Many tend to think of Provence as a “Rosé” only region. To me, that thinking is seriously misguided. You have aawesome reds from Bandol like Domaine Tempier. Delicious whites from Verrmentino, or Rollé as it is known in the area and let’s not forget the amazing wines made from the ancient varietal, Tibouren. Sounds like a can’t miss tasting to me!
Friday, August 10th: Alpine Highs! Off to the Mountains Once Again. We’re Thinkin’ Swiss & French Alps, Dolomites, and Basically Anywhere Up, Up and Away ($15)
A Favorite “newish” theme for us, the wines we’ve been tasting from Switzerland, Valle D’Aosta, Northern Italy and the Jura keep getting better and better, which isn’t easy considering the stellar wines up to this point. If you’ve never had the pleasure you need to be here, if you have I know you will be.
Friday, August 17th: The Action Is Hot and Heavy in Our Own Backyard, The Great Northwest ($15)
In the not to distant past, a tasting of NW wines would include Pinot Noir, Cab/ Merlot & Pinot Gris…& that’s about it. Now we have killer Chardonnays, excellent Gamay, Trousseau, Albariño and, oh yeah, some of the best Pinot in the world. This will be eclectic, not eclectic and everything in between. What fun!
Friday, August 24th: Birthday Celebration. It’s the Hazel/Sandy Show. ($15)
Not sure how many of you know but “The Haze” & I have the same birthday. Seriously, it’s actually the 25th. Each year around this very special time the two of us pick our favorite wines. Reds, whites, pinks, sparkling….you just never know. If this isn’t a phenomenal tasting we need to find a different career!
