Wine – and the dinosaurs that helped make it!
“Terroir” is all the things that help make a wine: soil, climate, environment, flora, fauna… and a certain je ne sais quoi that we like to call “history”. In this case, we mean prehistory!
From Prosaurolophus to Struthiosaurus, to members of the Titanosauridae, dinosaur fossils are found in many wine growing regions including – at times – directly beneath the vines. How does that taste???? We will try 5 wines from fossil-heavy soils and famous dinosaur-sites – including from the Jura(ssic)!
Come taste the terroir and that je ne sais quoi that these dinosaurs left in the soil.
We’ll enjoy these five wines:
- Peggy et Jean Pascal Buronfosse, Côtes du Jura Varron (2011)
- Meinklang Pinot Gris Graupert (2015)
- Fontezoppa, Vernaccia di Serrapetrona Falcotto (2012)
- Bodega Familia Schroeder, Saurus Pinot Noir (2015)
- Quinta do Monte d’Oiro, Lisboa Syrah Lybra (2013)
(wines subject to change due to PLCB peculiarities)
BONUS: A limited quantity of these bottles will be available for sale to-go!
This tasting will be led by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and our Wining Archaeologist. Let her guide you through 5 wines and their unique histories.
Your $35 ticket entitles you to our 5-wine tasting plus light snacks, as well as 15% off your evening’s bar tab AND special pricing on bottles of the evening’s wines (for to-go sales). Seating is limited.
