Who doesn't love a rule breaker? In this evening, we have five of them.
Spain is one of the most exciting countries in the world of wine today. This wine dinner features wine from two producers whose wines defied the local practices (yet found commercial and critical success) to such an extent that they dramatically "quit" their growing areas. We will taste another wine from two friends who met in college and now craft superb old-vine grenache on a high plain outside of Madrid. Another wine is introducing a Burgundian style of vineyard classification among the old vines of northwestern Spain. And another broke with tradition to rank the 2010 reserva on a level only achieved three times before.
The tasting will be led by Tyler Colman. 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.
After starting with a sparkling wine, our tasting of rule breaking wines will continue with four rare red wines:
* Raventos, "de Nit" sparkling rosé from magnum
* Comando G, "La Bruja de Rozas," Sierra de Gredos, 2017
* La Rioja Alta, "Viña Ardanza - Selcción especial," Rioja 2010
* Artadi, "Viñas de Gain" 2017
* Desciendenties de J. Palacios, "Corullón," Bierzo, 2016
We will pair these wines with a five-course menu from chefs Tim LaBant and Michelle Greenfield.
