Natural Wine: A Salon
Our first "salon" focuses on Natural Wine, a topic that is both incredibly hot and invariably misunderstood. Organic... sustainably farmed... Biodynamic... What makes a wine "green," and how should it taste?
Join us for a tasting and panel
discussion. On tap: more than a dozen
delicious and worthy-of-the-“natural”-tag wines from around the planet, served tableside along with platters of artisan cheeses, charcuterie and bread. Sip, nibble, discuss, repeat.
