Christmas is almost upon us, and our local wine merchants are taking a short events breather surrounding the day itself. But they’ll be there for your last minute pre-holiday sipping and again to help you celebrate after your guests have left!
Read on for your Christmas week highlights:
ORLANDO’S CHRISTMAS WEEK IN WINE
Tomorrow (Saturday), Digress Wine hosts a free tasting of new store favorites, in hopes that you might pick up a bottle for a host gift or for your own holiday table.
Thursday, after you’ve had a day to recover, Digress will be at it again, with a not-free but well-worth-it tasting featuring wines from the Alto Piemote, a lesser-known area near Barolo whose nebbiolos are starting to get their due.
Friday, Quantum Leap Winery is the venue for the “Tasty Trio’s” final Wine, Cheese & Chocolate event of the year, featuring 2018’s favorite pairings.
Saturday, get in on the last Bordeaux mini-master class at Tim’s Lake Mary, or head back to Digress for a pre-New Year’s bubbles tasting on the patio. (You could actually do both … just sayin’!)
Details for these tastings and more are on the Events Page.
Here’s wishing you all a very warm and Merry Christmas if you celebrate it … and a happy week before New Year’s if you don’t!
