Wine Tasting: Wines and Crimes

August 14, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Wines and Mysterious Crimes

The world can be a dark place – and so there is wine!

We’ll explore mysteries, crimes, and more – some real, some… less so.  Who stole the Mona Lisa? What happened on the Orient Express? How did a real-life crystal ball get taken from the Penn Museum? Who is the rightful owner of the One Ring?

Even better we’ll taste 5 wines associated – perhaps circuitously – with these crimes.

Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and Wining Archaeologist will guide you through 5  wines and their unique histories and relation to our “crimes”. We’ll taste wines from:

  • Croatia
  • New Zealand
  • Pennsylvania
  • Italy
  • Argentina

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.
