with John Lambrakis of Bordeaux Fine & Rare
Thursdays, July 13th, 20th, & 27th, 6-8 pm

lambrakisFor three special Thursday nights in July, we’re hosting John Lambrakis behind the bar to give y’all an extra chance to try before you buy, and before you head to the pool, Downtown, or out of town for the weekend!

We’re loading up the tasting bar with crisp and clean whites, refreshing rosés, and easy-drinking reds that are perfect for mixing and matching, stocking up and taking with you wherever the Summer calls. Whether it be a fun and fizzy sparkler for pre-dinner cocktails, or a juicy, smokey red that pairs with the grill, we’re giving y’all great values for the season that can’t be beaten, all from Bordeaux Fine & Rare’s fantastic portfolio.

This week we will be tasting a whopping five refreshing wines from Germany, Austria, and France, all perfect for sharing with family and friends on their own, or around a delicious Summertime meal.

This week’s lineup is pretty cool, if we do say so ourselves. He’ll start off with the Tegernseerhof ‘T26’ Grüner which has been a shop favorite for some time. It’s bright and refreshing – two things necessary for this dead of Summer heat.

John’s also pouring two different Rieslings – the Müller-Catoir ‘MC’ Feinherb from Mosel in Germany and the Landhaus Mayer from Vienna, Austria. It’s a great chance to taste a varietal wine side by side to compare how terroir changes even across short distances. Just think, it is only an 8-hour train ride from Mosel to the city of Vienna. Speaking of Vienna, did you know that Vienna has over 1,700 acres under vine…in the city?! You will see vines in metropolis areas in a lot of major wine growing regions but those are just for show. The vines of Vienna not only look good but they produce some very fine wines and we get to try two of them.

Florian AndreWe’ll stick around in Vienna to try this week’s featured wine, the Gemischtler Satz by Weingut Mayer am Pfarrplatz –  a field blend highlighting what a small, concentrated area has to offer.

Last, we can’t forget the ‘La Belle Etoile’ rosé from the south of France. Wild strawberry, juicy watermelon rind and a dry crisp finish, there’s no better way to closeout this Thursday’s tasting and get the weekend started!
