Wednesday Wine Tasting -- August 5, 2009
Except for the American woman, nothing interests the eye of the American man more than an automobile, or seems so important to him as an object of aesthetic appreciation. (Alfred Hamilton Barr, Jr.)
Wednesday's wine tasting will be a California-focused, automotive-themed tasting with two well-respected brands from the West Coast. Auto Moto wines are produced in the North and Central Viticultural areas at state-of-the-art facilities, combining Old World winemaking techniques with New World technologies. Vroom! From the Sonoma, CA area, we will have two organic wines from The Red Truck family of wines. Originally, a Cline brand, it is now owned by industry wine veterans Dan Leese and Doug Walker, with Charlie Tsegeletos as winemaker. They leave the fun in winemaking.
Our Guest Pourers hail from the local Courtesy Ford in Elizabeth City. Brent Buhl, Shannon Stryker, and Jessica Everett will serve you with classic car style. Will will have Erin Helvig and Steve Raisor collaborating for background sounds of easy listening, classical, light jazz, and pop tunes.
We will taste a Riesling, an organic Sauvignon Blanc, a Chardonnay, a Merlot, a Cabernet, and an organic Zinfandel. Tasting held from 6-7:30 pm; $15 per person. Call 252-335-1163 to RSVP.
