Weekly Wine Deal
Every week (or so) David will select a wine that he’s especially excited about. If you’d like to purchase this week’s deal, please get in touch:
Tour Boisee “Plantation 1905” 2011 $15 – This organic winery is located in Minverois in Southern France near the Rhone valley. This wine comes from a single vineyard planted in 1905, with 23 different grape varieties! Some of them are familiar like Grenche and Carignan, but some are obscure, and the winery can’t even figure out what 4 of them are. Long story short, here’s a wine made from incredibly old vines with a big field blend of grapes that’s absolutely delightful. Even more so when you consider the price!
For those of you that like flavor descriptors this wine was vibrant and spicy with lots of red fruit and pomegranate tones. Super fascinating while being very drinkable. Pick some up for parties or dinner as its great with food or on its own.
Please call 503.232.3867 or email email@example.com for reservations on any of the classes below.
May 3 Grower Cava 6:30pm - Outside of Champagne I can think of only a
few sparkling wine regions that produce wines with a definite style.
Often times sparkling wines are a hodgepodge, but Cava in Spain
consistently produces wines with distinct flavors and characteristics.
Unfortunately many large Cava houses just pump out plonk and we don’t
get to taste the good stuff. Join us for a fantastic evening of
learning about and tasting wine from Spain’s grower Cavas. We’ll enjoy 7
wines that show the top tier of quality from this under appreciated
region. $25 per person. Reservations required.
May 18 Guiseppe Quintarelli 7pm - Finally, the tasting I’m very excited about – Guiseppe Quintarelli is one of the legends of the wine world for his Amarone. His legendary status makes his wines exceptionally rare and expensive. So rare in fact that, I have never actually gotten to taste any of his wines. I finally managed get my hands on some of his wines and I thought what better to do than open them! For a full description of the winery and wines have a look: http://kermitlynch.com/our_wines/quintarelli/

June 7 Summer Sippers 6:30pm – Summer is a time for relaxing, enjoying the weather, backyard cookouts, and spending time with friends. For some reason, many people think of beer for these activities. Wine is awesome during summer! Come enjoy my picks for summer as well as some tips for helping you get the most out of your wine during the warm months. I realize few people want to spend a lot on summer drinking, so all these wines will be a deal. The tasting is only $10 for 7 tasty wines. Reservations required.
June 22 Coastal Wines 6:30pm – Many of my favorite wine regions are very close to an ocean or sea. After years of comparing inland wines to coastal wines, I believe there are some distinct characteristics that the coastal wines have in common. Join me and taste coastal wines from around the world and see if you agree. $25 per person. Reservations required.
