Rare and Rescued Grapes
What do Agronomica, Obeideh, Tsitska, Tsolikouri and Grechetto Rosso have in common? Rarity!
Grapes can fall out of favor and be forgotten, or entirely disappear from certain regions, but fortunately these beauties have been reinvigorated by pioneering winemakers. Join Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and Wining Archaeologist, as she digs deep into the world’s many grape varietals, bringing you names and flavors you may have never experienced. Taste these rare gems and perhaps discover a new favoite for the summer!
