The Spectacular Spectrum of Sherry Flight May 20 – May 26
When was the last time you had a glass of sherry? Do you know what style it was? Fact of the matter is, Sherry can span the spectrum of fine, delicate, bone dry and slightly salty to copiously rich and sweet. And everything in between! This flight will let you taste the way from one end to the other. $15
74 Sherries by the bottle and 25 by the glass! See the list
Plus, try your hand at the venencia!
Practice pouring from the barrel (and hopefully into your glass, not on the floor!)

May 27 Champagnes of Vouette et Sorbée
Bertrand Gautherot lets nature take its course in the vineyard and he continues to be as hands off in the winery as much as possible. He is making biodynamic wines not as a marketing aid but because he truly believes these techniques produce better wine. No chemicals are used in the vineyard and fermentation is carried out entirely by natural yeasts. There is no fining or filtering of the wine and the use of sulfur is keep very low, added only right after harvest. Everything from the riddling to the disgorgement is done by hand and there is never a dosage added. The result? Wines with a sense of place and a truly unique character. $20
Vouette et Sorbée, Fidèle Extra Brut
