June Wine Tastings!
Join us Fridays from 4 pm – 7:30 pm at 4316 SE Hawthorne, Portland, OR 97215!
Friday, June 2nd: The Amazing Wines of Corsica ($18)
Whether white, rosé, or red, the wines are unique and made from varieties rarely seen and even more rarely pronounced correctly. Grapes like Sciaccarellu, Niellucciu, Biancu Gentile… you get the idea. Auto pronounce correct or not, these wines are frickin’ delish!
Friday, June 9th: New Theme! The Fight to Be the Best… $25 Wine. ($15)
We were throwing around ideas for tastings yesterday and came up with this baby. If you focus on possibilities, they are endless. We’re going to pick our favorite 5 wines in the $25 neighborhood. Anything goes! If we allow you to come, you must vote for your favorite. Ideas?
Friday, June 16th: Chad Stock of Minimus Wines ($15)
I’ve known Chad Stock for years. First, he was with Antica Terra, then Johan, and now he makes wine for Omero. His own label, Minimus Wines, is his platform for experimentation. Straight from Chad’s Site… “Minimus challenges convention. It asks why? Why not? What’s possible?”
Friday, June 23rd: A Tour Thru The Loire Valley With Ms. Sikorski ($15)
When the cat’s away… I’ll be out exploring the Okanagan Valley trying to negotiate with Trudeau over border taxes so we can get some of these awesome Canadian wines down here… you know, NAFTA stuff. So Hazel will guide you thru the beautiful Loire Valley. Probably will be the tasting of the year!
Friday, June 3oth: Whites from the Great Northwest ($18)
It’s truly amazing. Just a few short years ago, most of the whites from around here were made using Pinot Gris and the wrong clone of Chardonnay. Lots of insipid Pinot Gris! Now, we have Ken Pawlow at Walter Scott and Jimmy Maresh of Arterberry Maresh leading the way with the knowledge that, like with Pinot Noir, we in Oregon feel that soon we will be known as much for Chardonnay as for Pinot Noir. On top of that, we have delicious Roussanne, Dry Rieslings, Viognier, Old Vine Melon etc. This will be a revelation for most!
