Friends of Flatiron,
Hopefully no one overdid it this weekend for St. Patricks Day because we’ve got a whole bunch of great tastings and offers ready for you to enjoy. Check out what’s on the schedule:
Tuesday 03/19, Meet the Winemaker: Tasting with Ian Brand with wines from I.Brand and Le P’tit Paysan at 5pm: If you’re not already familiar with Ian Brand and his wines this is your chance. He is a winemaker who set out to find neglected and remote vineyards, often with unsung varieties, and bring them out of obscurity. With a non-interventionist approach, Ian brings out the unique qualities of the sites he’s discovered. His wines are a true celebration of American winemaking making this tasting a must for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of our nation’s terroir. $5/tasting
Wednesday 03/20, Far West Cider Tasting at 5pm: Coming from a family who has been tending orchards in California for over 90 years, Adam Chinchiolo had ample inspiration for starting his own brew operation. In fact there was a need for it. His family’s farm, as well as other orchards in the area, had a major problem with a large percentage of their crop going to waste due to cosmetic blemishes making them unsellable. Adam, with his interest in brewing, stepped in to make use of those delicious, but blemished fruits. You won’t taste a single blemish in his ciders though! These are gorgeous brews bursting with flavor that will please every palate out there. Join us and taste just how good a true California cider can be. $5/tasting
Thursday 03/21, Andrew Will Tasting at 5pm: Andrew Will is, without a doubt, one of the solidly classic producers of Washington state. Founded in 1989, the winery was named after Chris Camarda’s nephew Andrew and his son Will. It started as humbly as could be with a single building measuring 10’x60′. Today it is still a humble winery as well as his home. To taste Andrew Will wines is to understand the past, present and future of Washington wines. Needless to say this is an event not to be missed. $5/tasting
Friday 03/22, Meet the Winemaker: Tasting with Karina and Guillaume Lefevre from Domaine Sulauze of Provence at 5pm: After falling in love while on a hike in Corsica, Karina and Guillaume Sulauze knew that there were more adventures in store for them together. With the help of a government subsidization program they bought an abandoned farm in Coteaux d’Aix en Provence. Over the years they converted the dilapidated property to a Demeter certified farm and winery. Today they make sensational wines that exemplify the good life of Provence. Come taste a selection of their wines, including the 2018 bottling of their extremely popular Rosé. $5/tasting
