Tariffs are looming. It's not the most uplifting topic for a wine dinner, but European wines may be hit (any day now) with a 100% tariff. So we are getting in before the prices go up. And we are going big--as in, big bottles!
We will be pouring five wines from four tariff-affected countries. These are some of our favorite producers. We will pair these wines with four courses prepared by chefs Tim LaBant and Michelle Greenfield.
Here are the wines will will be having, all from large format:
* Bohigas, Cava, brut reserva
* Dönnhoff, Tonschiefer, 2017
* Raul Perez, Ultreia St Jacques, 2017
* Etienne Becheras, St. Joseph rouge, 2014
* G. Fenocchio, Barolo. 2015
This lineup includes a sparkling wine from a family that has been growing grapes since the year 1290, a crackling dry white from a Riesling master, a silky old-vine mencia from a top Spanish winemaker, a brooding, concentrated syrah from the Northern Rhone with six years of age, and a mind-bending Barolo.
Tyler Colman, Ph.D., selected the wines and will led us in a tasting with each course. Tyler is the author of two wine books and has contributed wine stories to the New York Times, Food & Wine, Wine & Spirits and the World of Fine Wine and has taught wine classes at NYU and the University of Chicago. He was a finalist for a James Beard award for his writing. He is the wine director for our sister restaurant, Parlor Pizza.
This will be a very memorable evening should not be missed. The menu will be posted shortly. Advanced purchase required.
