Wine Tasting: Field Blends!

August 6 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

$35

Grown Together, Harvested Together, Fermented Together

Field blends aren’t just ordinary blends of multiple grapes; they are made from multiple grape varieties grown in the same vineyard, harvested and fermented together!

This technique has a long history in both the Old and New Worlds. Fields might be planted deliberately with mixed grapes – to see which thrive, to mix comlementary characteristics, or simply for diversification. Or, they might have been mistakenly mixed. By whatever way, field-blend wines can be delightful drinks that are far more than just the sum of their parts.

We’ll taste wines from Vienna – where the technique is tradional – and also from Pennsylvania – where it is not. We’ll also taste field blends and co-fermentations from Alsace, California, and Spain.

What are we drinking?

  • Weingut Wieninger, Wiener Gemischter Satz (2017)
  • Agathe Bursin, L’As de B (2016)
  • Va La Zafferano (2016)
  • Marc Isart La Maldicion (2015)
  • Frey Biodynamic Field Blend (2017)

Our tastings will transport you to a different place and time as we delve into the history of the wine, the region, and the people who make it. Each class features 5 wines that we taste while discovering the fun facts and peculiar histories of each wine’s locale.

BONUS: A limited quantity of these bottles will be available for sale to-go!

Your ticket entitles you to our 5-wine tasting plus light snacks, as well as 15% off your evening’s bar tab AND special pricing on bottles of the evening’s wines (for to-go sales). Seating is limited.
