Weekly Wine Tasting October 6th-8th 2022

For the first weekend in October we will have 6 wines from Spain open to taste. 2 whites from the cool Northwest and one white and 3 reds from the warmer Rioja region. We start with a Txakolina from the Basque Country, followed by the Fefinanes Albarino from Rias Baixas, and then a rather rare Tempranillo Blanco. The reds all scored 93 points or more, Lopez de Heredia's Cubillo, and La Rioja Alta's Alberdi and Ardanza complete the line-up. Taste all 6 for $25, individual pours from $4 to $7, taxes included. The Plum is to be decided, though it will be good! The tasting bar will be open Thursday through Saturday from 3.30 to 7.30.
I will also be pouring some nice bubbles, white and red at the La Jolla Art and Wine Festival on Sunday October 9th - looking forward to seeing a number of you there.
