Wine Tasting with the Expert September 10, 2012
with Expert Gabe Pica, 5:30-7:30pm
Each Monday we gather our wine expert, wine club members, and those with an interest in learning more about wine to explore the wonderful world of wine one Monday at a time.
- Enjoy a tasting of featured wines
- Relax in our informal yet engaging culinary atmosphere
- Ask questions and learn the basics (and beyond)
- Socialize among friends & neighbors
- Gourmet Nibble & Snack Menu available for purchase to enjoy with your wine!
Whether we’re on the terrace, in the garden, or in the kitchen, our Monday Wine Tastings are a self-evolving experience, with a come-as-you-please feel. Just like gathering at a friend’s home, our tasting experience will give you a sense of relaxation, laughter, and community.
Each featured wine will be available for purchase by the bottle or case. Monday Wine Tastings are $5/guest for non-wine club members. For Wine Club Members, Monday Wine Tastings are complimentary. If you’re a Wine Club member, you’ll also receive a case purchase discount, your passport stamps, and other benefits as well! If you’re not a Wine Club member, this is the perfect opportunity to learn about all the benefits of becoming one!
September 10th, our wine expert, Gabe Pica, will feature:
Allegrini, Valpolicella Claccico DOC 2010 Aged in stainless steel. Fresh, aromatic, bright cherry fruit nose. Lovely fruitiness. The palate shows pure cherry fruit with some nice grip on the finish.
Zenato, Valpolicella Superiore DOC 2009 Deep red in color. Very aromatic with licorice, oak, and black fruit on the nose. Red and black fruits, earth, and licorice come through on the palate. Medium-bodied and crisp with medium tannins, and a long, smooth finish.
Allegrini, Palazzo della Torre Veronese IGT 2008 This sleek, polished red offers juicy blackberry and black fruit flavors, backed by refined tannins and well-integrated acidity. Deep ruby red in color, it has a delicious red berry perfume, with hints of raisins and plums.
Argiolas, Costamolino Vermentino di Sardegna, DOC 2011 Lemon-green in color, delicate aromas of citrus and tree fruits complement undertones of tropical fruits and honey. On the palate, the wine shows a delightfully zesty acidity, which makes it both food-friendly and crowd-pleasing.
Please note Monday Wine Tastings are not staffed as regular dinner service. Tastings and snacks are available on a first come-first served basis. Open Kitchen believes in responsible drinking. We support wine consumed in moderation as a drink of friendship and connection. Everyone is required to be 21 years of age or older and show a valid I.D. for all of our wine events.
