Thursday, May 30, 2013 | The Sorting Table – Eclectic & Exemplary $20
The Sorting Table is a modern interpretation of a fine wine importer. Founded in April of 2006, the company brings a new level of selection and information to the distribution of premium estates from Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, California, Oregon and France. All their wineries are benchmarks for their appellations, terroir-driven boutiques that control every step of the wine making process. We’ll browse the Sorting Table’s stellar portfolio, including: Provence’s Domaine des Triennes (co-owned by Domaine de la Romanée Conti!), Seresin (killer New Zealand producer), Cielo y Tierra (maker of premium Argentine Malbecs), Trig Point (Sonoma reds by flying winemaker Nick Goldschmidt). We’ll happily sort through this fab line-up from the Sorting Table!
Thursday, June 13, 2013 Bourgeois Family Selections $20
Join the dashing Jean-Philippe Bourgeois as we explore Provence Rose, Bordeaux, Beaujolais,
Côtes-duRhône and a few from the South of France through his collection of small French producers. Philippe is well-travelled, highly educated and absolutely charming when discussing the merits of French wine, make sure to join us for this one!

The 100 point 2008 vintage of Penfold’s Grange will be the star of the show. We’ll provide a flavorful sampling of light bites to complete the tasting experience. The chance to taste the very best of Australia winemaking is a rare treat today; we hope you’ll join us for it! Tickets are available online soon.
Thursday, June 20, 2013 Tuscany’s Il Molino di Grace $25
Join Special Guest Tim Grace as we sample Sangiovese wines from Tuscany. American-born, London-based Frank Grace purchased a 19th-century windmill (“molino”), adjacent barn, villa and vineyards in the heart of the Panzano zone of Chianti Classico. The Panzano estate has seen grape-growing for the past 350 years. In the words of Frank Grace’s son, Tim: “The Grace family philosophy is simple: being true to the rich tradition of Tuscan winemaking and its unique terroir.” In addition, Prosecco, Vermentino, Verdicchio and Soave from the Empson portfolio will be sampled.
