Guys! It's a miracle! Our birthday finally fell on a Wednesday night and we are beyond excited about it! So what do we do, of course, we have a Wine Tasting Extravaganza! Well, it's a mini extravaganza. The real party is coming in about a month or so...keep an eye out.
Wednesday, February 1st
Our Birthday Tasting Squad:
A ton of wine from one of our favorite importers, Eileen Hallmark from The Sorting Table
Dessert bar from Cake Hags
Pimento Cheese assortment from Home Grown
A river dance from Beth Lassiter
The best music & ambiance from Sarah Pierre
I mean, do you really want to miss this tasting? Probably not. #squadgoals
Might we add, this is the perfect Humpday treat.
See You There!
We told you we were coming with some new & fun things in 2017!
Tomorrow, we have Manj deSilva with Laureate Imports bringing his Slovenian A Game and teaching us all there is to know about this under-the-radar wine region!
Slovenian Cliff Notes:
Why do I know so little about Slovenia?
Easy. Once part of former Yugoslavia (remember Yugoslavia, yall!?!), Slovenia became Independent in 1991. The vast knowledge of history you have for many Europe regions does not exist for Slovenia. We're currently writing history and we're glad wine is a huge part of it!
Where is Slovenia? I need to see a map.
Slovenia lies in the heart of Europe, where the Alps meet the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Basin. AKA in between Italy, Austria, Hungary, Croatia.
The oldest vine in the world grows in Slovenia. 400 years old it is registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest vine in the world.
