18 Reasons Class: Wines from the Old Old World

Monday, May 18, 2015 7:00pm to 9:00pm

There are distinct advantages to drinking the unknown. The quality to price ratio of grapes and places we can’t pronounce from places we can’t readily find on a map can often be ridiculously high. We’ll taste a winemaking method with over 8000 years of unbroken history in the Republic of Georgia, a grape only found on one island off of the Croatian coast, a relative of Zinfandel hiding in Montenegro, a Hungarian grape known for “Bulls Blood,” Biodynamics in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and a rosè made from one of Giacomo Casanova’s favorite grapes in Slovenia. All wine retails under $20!

THE LINE-UP

2013 Carič Bogdanjuša, Island of Hvar, Croatia
2013 Brkić Žilavka, Čitluk, Bosnia and Herzegovina
2012 Vinoterra Kisi, Kakheti, The Republic of Georgia
2013 Štoka Teran Rosè, Kras, Slovenia
2013 Eszterbauer Sógor Kadarka, Szekszárd, Hungary
2011 Plantaže Vranac Pro Corde, Lake Skadar, Montenegro

Sunday, 5/17, 2-5PM:
Our fab GM Marisa Brown has chosen a lineup of four wines from Austria, Bosnia, Hungary and Slovenia. Did you know that experts think that this part of the world is where wine-making was born? Did you even know they made wine in Bosnia? Did you know that we adopted a dog from Bosnia? Yes. Her name is Bella, and she wants you to try the wine of her country.

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*
