Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
July 28th, 29th and 30th, 2020 7:00 PM (reception at 6:30)
The temperature is high, the garden is overflowing, the patio is set. Time for some refreshing, crisp, and easy wines to pair with the fresh flavors of summer. We have crafted a menu of summer flavors, fresh and bright, and Kate Strosahl-Johnson of Pure Wines have found some exiting pairings in an unexpected place. In South Australia, where the climate and ancient soils are suited to grow Italian varietals, we find some unique expressions through dry farming and restrained winemaking practices. This new world is making great strides interpreting the best of the old word. We hope you will join us to celebrate a safer today and the promise of a better tomorrow.
