Next Up, Pinot Showdown Tasting Event

“Burgundy makes you think of silly things: Bordeaux makes you talk about them, and Champagne makes you do them.”-Brillat-Savarin

“Cork dork” sommelier, Chris Potter and myself will be hosting the next wine tasting soiree at Nectar wine lounge next Tuesday, August 28th.  This is a great opportunity to learn more about the exquisitely elegant varietal and mingle with other wine lovers.

We will be featuring 5 pinot noirs from across the world. Come identify your true style of pinot, from Burgundy to the Sonoma Coast.  We are excited for this pinot showdown! To RSVP please reserve your tickets here.
