Tasting Notes

#Fridaynightvibes, July 12th 5-7pm 

New England Craft Beer Tasting:

Foam Brewing (Burlington, VT) - Founded in 2016 by an eclectic group of industry professionals with a shared appreciation for brewing, science, art, music, and culture. Enjoy Hold Fast, Dead Flowers, Transmitting Light and other gems. 

Fine Wine Tasting:

Bennet Kealey from MS Walker Fine Wine and Spirits will guide you through a great set of wines perfect for hot summer days, including:

 Corte Mainente Bianco Secco Veronese IGT 2022 - Try one of the bottles from the 403 cases of this gem that were produced for the world.  With approximately ten (10) hectares of vines, Mainente’s wines are largely unknown outside the region.  This white blend of Garganega and Trebbiano di Soave are planted on steep terraces. The vines are 60-80 years old and are from a mix of soils containing clay, black volcanic, fossils and limestone. Dry on the palate with aromas of melon, mandarin and fresh almonds.

Ascheri Gavi di Gavi 2023 - During your next cocktail gathering, or when serving shellfish hors d'oeuvres or fresh fish consider pulling the cork on this beauty. Fragrant with scents of wild flowers and citrus fruits, this 100% Cortese white wine has a dry, crisp and harmonious palate with remarkable freshness. 

Domaine Dupeuble Beaujolais Rosé 2023 - Made from vines that are up to 70 years old and experience that goes back more than five (5) centuries, this 100% Gamay Noir Rosé is made with careful attention to the growing and vinification process, including the use of natural compost, hand harvesting and natural yeast fermentation. The result is a "versatile rosé full of notes of red fruit, melon, and rhubarb. It finishes with a subtle herbal note and food friendly acidity."

Fongoli Rossofongoli Umbria Rosso 2020 - Made from a blend of organic Sangiovese (60%) and Montepulciano (40%) grapes and is farmed biodynamically (i.e. unfiltered, no added sulphites). This wine has cherry, plum and earthy tied up with a little fizzy funky fruit. With a ight-bodied mouthfeel & great acidity, you may find that you like a little funk in your glass on a hot summer day.

Andrew Rich, Gamay Noir 2018 - Andrew started out as a magazine editor in New York and then decided to change course, enrolling in winemaking school in Burgundy. Following his formal education, he worked a number of years for Bonny Doon Vineyard with Randall Grahm, where Andrew developed a love of Rhone varietals. He then moved to the Willamette Valley at the invitation of one of his American schoolmates from Burgundy. This 100% Gamay Noir has an evolving nose of cranberries and blood orange with a palate full of cranberry sauce and other fall spices and herbs. The velvety tannins highlight black pepper finish in the finish.

#Saturdaynightvibes, July 13th 5-7pm
