Dec 6

Deidre Heekin: The Unlikely Vineyard

4.00 PM - 7.00 PM

Unlikely Vineyard.jpgRead a little. Taste a little. Read a little more. Do both when Deirdre Heekin, author of An Unlikely Vinyeard and grower of otherworldly (OK, that other world = Vermont) wine, stop in for a visit.

Her book, recently noted by the New York Times as one of this year’s top wine books, spins a wonderfully practical account of realizing her vision of a living farm with a table at its center. Balancing rural romance with the real concerns of sinking hands into dirt, it’s filled with tips and inspiration for the existing gardener. And it will have armchair green thumbs ready to run off and buy a tractor.

We’ll have copies for sale ($35) and of course, wine!

Don’t miss this tasting – consider it an oasis of calm in your otherwise crazy holiday schedule.

SOUTH AFRICANS IN THE CITY: Marthinus from Ken Forrester

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

south africans in the city.jpgOur Ken Forrester tastings are always a hit. Join us for a mid-week sip of some high-low favorites including the cheap/cheerful Petit Pinotage and two chenin blancs: the Reserve and the FMC Chenin (ask Marthinus what it stands for. If the answer is appropriate for the ears of small children, tell him you know he's lying!)

Dec 11

Aussie Rules: Gordon Pours the Goods

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Aussie Rules.jpgGordon Little of Little Peacock pours Aussie wines that will surprise you. If you think it's all about kangaroos and shrimps on the barbie, come in with an open mind and try our open bottles.

Dec 12

Aussie Rules: Ngeringa with Chase from Indie wines

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Aussie Rules.jpgMore Aussie goodness (and a bottle of something French for kicks) - this time we're going to the Adelaide Hills for elegant, cool-climate syrah and chardonnay.

Dec 13

Our First Annual Rum Off

4.00 PM - 7.00 PM

It's a Rum Off! What's a Rum Off, you may ask? It's something we made up so that we can have two of our favorite local rums poured in the store at a same time. Oweny's and Van Brunt Stillhouse Due North will both be poured. Come taste and decide which is you like both. (And yes, 'both' is a perfectly acceptable answer!)
