This coming Thursday, I’ll host what I hope will be the first of many Orlando Wine Blog events – a unique opportunity to taste and learn about the wines of Missouri. That state played a major role in America’s early winemaking history and is home to the country’s first AVA. We’ll compare some of Missouri’s current wines with more familiar grapes and wine regions. I hope you’ll join me at Digress Wine for a geeky good time! (Seating is very limited, so get your tickets now.)
That tasting is in great company, coming during a very full week of exciting wine events around the region! Here are a few highlights.
Monday, Wine Bar George hosts Cristom Vineyards‘ owner and winegrower Tom Gerrie for a multi-decade tasting of his Willamette Valley wines.
Tuesday, sample multiple “Thanksgiving and Feast” wines at Bella Tuscany.
Wednesday, explore variations on the beef and cabernet theme at “Cabs and Slabs” at Tim’s Windermere.
Thursday, in addition to Orlando Wine Blog’s Missouri tasting, 1921 by Norman Van Aken hosts a Champagne dinner with Billecart-Salmon’s Clément Calleja.
Friday, Cress Restaurant holds a Chappellet wine dinner with the vineyard’s Certified Sommelier Jacob Jata.
Saturday, Wine Bar George invites you to a lunch with Johannes Selbach, featuring Selbach riesling from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, and today.
In addition, there are several events tonight and tomorrow, which I highlighted in last week’s post. Check the Events Page for all the details and to plan ahead for the coming weeks.
We’re spoiled for choice here in Central Florida. Get out and enjoy!
