This Saturday, I’m playing hostess for a wine tasting at the Dilly Cafe. First the key information: this Saturday, Oct 9, 1-4 pm, 50 cents per pour. If the weather cooperates, we’ll be enjoying a gorgeous fall day on the patio.
Now, the wines. I originally wanted to do a Breast Cancer themed tasting (okay, I walked in and said, “I think my theme is boobs.”) But I ended up with one red, one white, and four rosés. Now, I know people get all strange about rosé, and some people only want red or only want white at tastings, so I was feeling a little uncomfortable with my theme. Then I was staring at a particular wine and realized that I wanted to throw in some “weird” grapes.
Really, these grapes aren’t all that unusual – but my hope is that at least one of these grapes will be new to you. They’re fun to try and come from all across the globe.
1. A nice sparkling Brachetto (Italy)
2. Vinum Cellars White Elephant (Rhone blend, California winery, Chenin Blanc / Roussanne / Viognier blend)
3. Hirsch Gruner #1 (Austria, Grüner Veltliner)
4. Enotria Cortese (California winery, Italian grape – also called Gavi)
5. Turn Me Red (Austria, Zwiegelt)
6. Chandon Pinot Meunier (California winery, originally a French grape) << One of my favorite wines!
Well, that’s what is picked out right now, but keep in mind these are subject to change based on distributor availability.
I hope to see everyone there!
