Wine Tasting: Ides of March

March 13, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Beware the Ides of March – prepare yourself with wine and our annual “Ides” tasting!

Ah, that fateful day in 44 BC- March 15th – when Julius Caesar was betrayed by Brutus and stabbed to death. History repeats itself, so we’ll prepare ourselves by following Caesar through Gaul and over the Rubicon, to his assumption of power and eventual appointment with his assassins.

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.  This is a new year, so we have a new tasting series: Time-Traveler Tastings! Our tastings will transport you to the past 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.

We’ll taste 5 wines from the heart of Rome, Pannonia, and its province in Gaul!

  • Hannes Reeh, Chardonnay Rohstoff (2015) Austria
  • Donna Paolina, Greco di Tufo (2016) Italy
  • Montalbera, Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato La Tradizione (2016) Italy
  • Château St. Martin de la Garrigue, Coteaux du Languedoc Gres de Montpelier (2013) France
  • Baglio di Pianetto BDPY Frapatto (2015) Italy

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.
