Weekend Tasting: Croatia

This weekend we are going to journey to a land that has ancient wine making roots that are just starting to be unearthed on this side of the world.  Wine dates back to 2200 B.C. whenthe ancient Greek settlers inhabited this land.  With Croatia rapidly developing into a modern nation, the quality and production of wine is following along. It wasn't until 2011 that a wine governing body was established, but quickly exports began to be released.  Many traditional varieties still exist after the long lineage of cultivation, but international varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah are starting to crop up.  We will be focused on traditional, indigenous grapes like Plavic Mali and Babic.

International Albarino Day Tasting

August 1st is a wine holiday to celebrate one of our favorite grapes: Albarino!  Planted almost exclusively in the northern Spanish region of Galacia, Albarino produces fresh, high acid and mineral driven white wine.  Albarino was made for the seafood that dominates the cuisine of this area.  Wine aficionado Miguel Cervantes will be on hand to help us show Albarino some love!

Weekend Tasting: Southern Rhone

The Rhone Valley is truly a historical wine growing region.  First planted in 600 B.C., Syrah has been genetically linked to have origins here.  Other varietals that call this area home include:  Viognier, Grenache, Mouvedre, Carignan, Marsanne and Roussanne to name a few.  In Cotes du Rhone there are over 21 varietals planted. The Northern Rhone is famous for high profile (high priced) AOC's including Crozes-Hermitage and Cote Rotie, but we are going to focus on the more prolific Southern Rhone with quintessential regions such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Lirac and Costieres de Nimes. 

VinoTeca's wine presentations will include Michael Gassier 'Nostre Pais,' Domaine de Chateaumar 'Perle de Rose' and

Weekend Tasting: Pinot Noir and Friends

August 18th is another wine holiday...  but who's complaining!  Pinot Noir is a favorite VinoTeca so much so that we've adopted the nickname 'PinoTeca!'  Pinot is a varietal indigenous to Burgundy, France but is planted throughout the world despite the fact that it is one the most difficult to cultivate.  Pinot grows in tight clusters that are susceptible to rot. The thin skinned varietal produces low yielding, low tannin juice with not a ton of complexities. Terrior and winemaking are necessary to produce the wine that we are all familiar with. 

But Pinot is not alone in its family.  It's sisters Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc will not be ignored! So, we are going to add them to this weekends tasting as well.

Weekend Tasting: Say What!

This tasting theme is quite possibly one of our favorite go-tos.  Introducing new varietals to our guests in a pastime at VinoTeca and the weirder the better.  Caino, Macabeo and Negroamaro will be the varietals of the weekend, but we've been know to throw a curve ball!

La Fête Nationale is the French holiday celebrating a turning point in the French Revolution, notably the storming of the Bastille against King Louis XVI.  This date was set to commemorate peace and unity that was achieved.  At VinoTeca we appreciate the rich passion and history of French wine making that has been translated throughout the world. They are one of the true O.G.s wine production standards.  Our tasting will cover the countryside starting with bubbles from the Loire Valley. Moving to Provence for Rose and to Bordeaux for a treat from the Medoc.
