South Africa: Unpronounceable Goodness

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Piekenierskloof. It's a lot of fun to say. At least we think it would be ... if we really knew how to pronounce it. So tonight, we're going to have David teach us. David Shaw works with Pascal Schildt, who's portfolio bring us some of the best new, naturally focused, small scale winemakers working in South Africa. Including regions such as Piekenierskloof. (If it seems like David and Pascal are here all the time, well, they sort or are. At least once a month. Because we really really really like their portfolio.)

An Aglianico, A Pig, and Two Petnats....

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

No it's not the start of a bad joke that involves people and pets walking into a bar. It's what we'll be pouring tonight: a selection of favorites from Ross's Critical Mass portfolio. Ross used to work here, so we think he has pretty good taste. He's now an importer bringing over some really excellent small batch natural wines from Italy and Spain. Come try some of them tonight.

Chase Pours Indie

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM
We love Indie Wines. It's possibly one of the best books in the business and somehow manages to fly a bit below the radar of the New York wine scene. We always have a few Indie selections on the shelf. Make that more than a "few." At the moment, we have at least six different wines on hand and would love to pour them all - but we're going to whittle it down to a more manageable selection for tonight's tasting. Come by and see what we pick.

Left Coast Love: The Broc Badger Hits the Shelf

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Chris Brockway. You know we love his wines. We buy everything we can. And the latest edition: a nero d'avola! This bottle sports a badger on the label - Chris's very own critter label. Apparently, "broc" is a Scottish word for badger. And we were traveling around Australia ... with a stuffed badger... when this wine first crossed the twitter waves. One of our favorite winemakers? Italian grapes by way of California? Critters on the label? We had to have it. So it's here. And tonight, it's time to try it. Along with whatever other treats we pull off the shelf from the super cool Encore/Communal Brands portfolio. Maybe an Italian Grenache? Maybe a Vermont cider? All of the above? (Probably.)
