Tasting Event: 40 wines (1 white and 1 red) from 20 Italian provinces with a few Italian food specialties..
Before writing about more fairly unknown, delightful and juicy natural wines (and spirits) from around the world in soon-to-come posts, I just wanted to say that from now on I will also, from time to time, advertise and promote some of the events and tastings from www.HeightsChateau.com.
For those of you who didn't realize it yet, Heights Chateau is the boutique Wine & Spirits store where I have been working for the past 2 and a half years, located at 123 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn Heights, New York.
As the co-Wine buyer and Wine manager of the store, I never really linked most of my descriptions and posts to the store. Probably because sometimes I'm too opinionated and enthusiastic or too personal and detailed on certain subjects. Hence, I may not be neutral enough to voice out the professionalism and fairness of the store profile.
However, advertising and promoting Heights Chateau's events and tastings on my blog is good way for me to demonstrate the selectivity of the store and invite you to have a look at what we do and discover our Wine and Spirits selection mirroring the quality of our discriminating palates.
For more info, you can always go to the store website at www.HeightsChateau.com to check our events and tastings calendar.
The next event, occurring on Friday, May 21st from 7pm to 9pm, will be held at Christ Church Cobble Hill, 326 Clinton street, Brooklyn, NY 11231 (www.christchurchcobblehill.org/welcome/).
40 wines (1 white and 1 red) from the 20 Italian provinces will be presented, complemented with a few Italian food specialties... Therefore, I'm asking you: I'm sure that you tried plenty of Italian wines from various regions, but did you ever get the chance to taste 40 Italian wines from 20 different provinces in the same place before? Never, so just come and discover them with us. It is only $35 person, or $40 at door, and moreover, it is for a good cause, the money will benefit a program for young children in Brooklyn.
See you soon at the event or at the store, here is the brochure:
