Upcoming Wine Events:
New Australia with Vine Street Imports - October 24 5-7pm - $12
Ah, Australia. Known mostly by us here in the States as Yellowtail or punch-ya-in-the-face big, jammy, overripe, high-alcohol Shiraz. But a new wine movement is underway that's redefining the way we think about Australian wines. From refined, reeled-in Cabernet Sauvignons and GSMs (Grenache-Syrah-Mourvedre) to wines that are a little bit funky (in a GREAT way), we've been really impressed with wines from down under lately. Brian Jewell of Vine Street Imports, one of our favorite importers of Australian wines, is coming into town to show us what's up on Wednesday from 5-7p. We're pouring 4 Australian wines (okay, one is New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc because it's delicious) .
Tasting is $12 per person
Walnut Block Sauvignon Blanc, Marlborough, NZ 2017
Dandelion Vineyards "Menagerie of the Barossa" GSM 2012
Jamsheed 'Harem' Syrah 2013
Pyren Vineyards 'Broken Quartz' Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Join us once again for a delightful and delicious class with Lacey and Dorota from the Boise Co-op and Jackie with J.W. Thornton. Tonight’s pairing will include american made cheeses, many of which received awards from the American Cheese Society and will be debuted in this class!
And of course, Jackie will be sharing some of her favorite american made wines, paired specifically to go with the cheeses.
Sokol Blosser is the ultimate family-run winery. Bill Blosser and Susan Sokol Blosser first planted grapes in the Willamette Valley in 1971. Since then, they've grown into one of the most classic producers of Oregon wines. Come find out why on Thursday October 25 from 5-7pm!
This tasting will be $14 for 4 wines.
When it comes to celebrations, nothing makes the occasion as special as the real deal—Champagne—perhaps the world’s most famous wine.
Join Divit Cardoza as he shares his deep knowledge of this historic region. Champagne, the wine, is named after the region where it is grown, fermented and bottled: Champagne, France. Nestled in the country’s northeastern corner, near Paris, the only labels that are legally allowed to bare the name “Champagne” are bottled within 100 miles of this region (according to European Law). In addition to location, Champagne also receives its distinguished name because of the grapes used to produce it. Grown in a mild climate with chalky and mineral rich soil, the flavor of these grapes is truly unique.
This tasting will include appetizers and desserts from the Co-op Kitchen.
This is one of our most popular tastings and sells out quickly, make your reservations early!
