Wine Tasting: Border Crossings

September 11, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Wines and Changing Borders

Are the people, themselves, the true terroir?

Borders can be pretty arbitrary, as the changing geopolitial-world is constantly demonstrating.

But, while the name, politicians, and language may change, “place” does not. People are the constant tie to the land, maintaining and preserving underlying traditions and cultures – and sense of place.

Come taste 5 wines from lands with historically-contested borders:

  • Marjan Simčič, Goriška Brda Pinot Grigio (2015)
  • Meinklang Somlo Foam Pet Nat Biodynamic (2016)
  • Kuentz-Bas, Alsace Pinot Noir (2013)
  • Alpha Estate, Xinomavro (2015)
  • Jean Louis Tribouley Cotes Catalanes Orchis Vieilles Vignes (2014)

(wines are subject to change due to PLCB availability)

Join us for this installment of our Time-Traveler Tastings! Our tastings will transport you to a different place and time as we dig deep into the history of the wine, the region, and the people who make it. Each class features 5 wines that we taste while discovering the fun facts and peculiar histories of each wine’s locale.

BONUS: A limited quantity of these bottles will be available for sale to-go!

Your 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.
