The Wines of Blue Danube with Eric Danch

Tasting Saturday, June 20th: Pouring from 2-4pm

Join us as we taste one of our perennial favorite whites from Slovenia, the humble Crnko Jarenincan, a delightfully earthy, high acid dry Furmint from Tokaj Nobilis in Hungary, the Susogo. Next we'll move on to two delightful reds, the first a Refosk from the hands of Ludvic Nazaridj Glavina based in Slovenia, followed by a Teran from Croatia with a refreshingly low alcohol of 12.3%. We'll finish the flight with one of the world's most historic sweet wines: a 2005 Samuel Tinon Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos -- a wine fit both for kings and an impeccable pairing with the recently re-legalized fruit of the goose; foie gras.

The ever-ebullient Eric will be on-hand to pour from 2-4pm Saturday. The cost of the tasting will be $10, and all wine purchased from the tasting will be discounted at 10%.

Endangered Wines of Eastern Europe

You are invited to a truly unique wine tasting in the cellar on Friday, May 29th, 7:00-9:00pm. Taste and discover Endangered Wines of Eastern Europe on the verge of extinction.

Why are they endangered you ask?
Too exotic, too hard to grow, too labor intensive, against the law; many things can render a wine endangered, some have already been lost.

Join dynamic wine personality, Stetson Robbins of Blue Danube Wines to taste and discover some of the most interesting wines you've never heard of at risk of disappearing.

Don't miss your chance to try these exceptional wines before they are gone forever.

The wine flight is accompanied by gourmet cheese and charcuterie from favorite local spot, Murray’s Cheese.

$65 Wine Tasting. Reserve your seat here

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.
