Our 1st Tasting of the Year!

Last month, the New York Times ran an article about German Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). In the second paragraph, Eric Asimov wrote:

“Few wine shops carry a selection of spätburgunders, and even those in on the secret may have only one or two bottles at a time.”

Well he obviously neglected to check out Dee Vine Wines. On Saturday the 27th of February, from noon to 3pm, we will open twelve Spätburgunder and one Frühburgunder, a small berried early ripening clone of Pinot Noir. The tasting will start with a German Sparkling Rosé of Spätburgunder and end with an incredible 1983 Spätburgunder Eiswein. The cost for this tasting is $25 and $20 for wine club members. A selection of artisanal cheese and charcuterie will accompany the wines.
