 People spend too much time tasting wine; not enough time drinking it. -

Hey – we drink the wine also here at Wine Watch but this event is a formal Brown Bag tasting so there will be some serious tasting going on tonight.  We will have a winner but there will not be a loser as we will all be drinking wine.

Let me explain this event further…

Brown Bag formal sit down tasting at Wine Watch
Saturday, January 12, 2019 and Saturday, January 26, 2019
7:30 PM

 

This event is for the “brown bag” contingency that invades the Wine Watch every Saturday afternoon.  One of our best friends/customers Dr. Richard Esack started this madness at the store nearly 20 years ago and now it has become a weekly ritual.  Every Saturday at approximately 4pm friends/customers of the store arrive with their wines covered in brown bags eager to stump the wine guy (me).  Well, I think it’s time to take this little game to the next level.  This time we will taste through 12 wines in a sit-down formal style in the Wine Cave at Wine Watch and these wines will not only be blind to the tasters, but they will also be blind to the person conducting the tasting (me).  Tomas the wine “Graduate student” will be making the selections and you can be assured that there will be some eclectic wines represented as I am giving him a healthy budget for this evening.  The tasters (you) will be awarded one point for guessing: varietal, vintage, region of origin and producer (a total of four points for each wine).  If you get all four questions correct you will receive an additional point giving you a total of five points for your answer.  And here is the kicker- the person that gets the most points doesn’t have to pay!  Toni Lampasone will be sending out a few small courses to accompany the wines and there will be cheese and Charcuterie on the table.

 

Menu

Burrata and Prosciutto di Parma wrapped in Grilled Romaine lettuce drizzled with Balsamic and Ciacci Piccolomini Olive Oil
