A Game of Thrones premier tasting at Table Wine

April 12th 10am-8pm

In honor of the Season Premier we bring you a Game of Thrones tasting. Wines (and a beer) from the regions the show was filmed; Croatia, Spain, Ireland.

2014 Ulacia Getariako Txakolina, Basque, Spain
From a very small winery along the Northern Coast of Spain, near San Sebastian, in the Basque region. Tart, refreshing and lively flavors of grapefruit, lime pith with a linguering floral finish behind all that zesty citrus. *Fierce and full of life like Arya*

2012 Sipun Zlahtina, Krk, Croatia
100% Zlahtina from Croatia\\\'s largest island of Krk. Lots of salt air influences the flavor and keeps this crisp with orange blossom, gardenia and just a little peachiness. *Pretty and delicate - Sansa\\\'s Choice*

2013 Valcantara Old Vine Garnacha, Cariñena, Spain
Grenache from some of the oldest vineyards in Cariñena produce this rich, but affordable wine. Dense flavors of cranberries and raspberry pie with layers of spice. *Rich, but sensible. Tyrion\\\'s preference, in large quantity*

2011 Plantaže Vranac, Montenegro
Technically from Montenegro, but realistically only a few miles South of the main filming location for Kings Landing. The Vranac grape is the main grape of this warm coastal country. The many days of sunshine here lend to a deep, fuller bodied wine that shows you a little rustic side behind all that fruit. *Hedonistic wine for the Mother Of Dragons - Daenerys*

Murphy\\\'s Premium Red Ale, Ireland
So they don\\\'t really make much wine in Ireland, unless you count whiskey, so we will be pouring a classic red ale instead. *Jon Snow\\\'s choice on a cold night on the wall*

Don't be surprised if you find a new favorite.
