“The International Tasting”
We’re taking a flight of fancy this week and offering an enticing assortment of wines from around the world that we think you will enjoy immensely. We’ll start in-state with a Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc as the California representative and then wind through wines from Washington’s Columbia Valley, Argentina’s Mendoza highlands, Spain’s Toro region, the French Rhone Valley and the Italian Piedmont.
No need to bring your passport, just show up and join in the merriment with your tasting guide, Bill Callahan.
