SPRING WINE SERIES 2014
Our popular Wine Series resumes with a trio of events focusing on the West Coast, listed below. Reservations are required as seating is limited. Each event will begin at 5:45 p.m. and last between 45 minutes to an hour. There is a $15 charge for participation. For reservations ring 860.767.1776. Due to the popularity of these events, reservations are limited to one event per person. You may, however, place your name on a wait list for as many other events as you wish and we will contact you if space is available.
The Wine Bar Series is intended to provide a casual forum to learn about wines from regions all over the world. Each event will feature a wine expert presenting three or four wines for tasting as well as our Executive Chef who will provide small plates for pairing and comment on creating a menu that is well-matched with the featured wines. Events also include a brief cooking demonstration.
Thursday, March 27 - Oregon’s Pinot Noir
The wines of Erath, which repeatedly earn high praise, will be highlighted. “Delicate and inviting”, “remarkable”, Erath’s winemaker “builds beautiful wines”, are just a few of the accolades its wines have received. A true visionary, Dick Erath planted the first Pinot Noir grapes in 1969, in the Dundee Hills of the Willamette Valley. This winery’s Pinot Noir captures the true character of the vineyards and terroir of the valley and is in large part responsible for Oregon’s reputation as a world-class Pinot Noir producing region.
Thursday, April 3 - Sonoma's Carneros
Offerings from the Sonoma winery, Gloria Ferrer, will be featured. Gloria Ferrer was the first to produce sparkling wine in the Carneros AVA (American Viticultural Area). The winery also produces a quality Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from estate grapes
Thursday, April 10 - California's Central Coast
The wines of renowned golfer Greg Norman will be showcased, who has created a stunning collection of wines from his California Estates. This focus of this tasting will be on the reds from the Santa Barbara and Paso Robles area.
