Join us Wednesday nights this summer as we get into some serious business. Wine business that is, and all the nuances of decision making that goes into your glass. It’s what we do best here at Bergamot- perpetually try to stretch your brains and bring you new sips to learn about and love.
The line up is perpetually expanding, but here is our first month of solid gold fun. Rock Star Guest Speakers accompany each tasting, and you will always walk away with a smile… and sometimes a 6-pack of your new favorite wine.
JUNE 7: 2016 Sake HOSTED BY JULIE BATH OF SAKE TENGOKU
$35 / 7pm
If you love wine, if you love beer, if you love life, you need this Sake class. Acclaimed sushi Chef Ken Tominaga (HANA SUSHI) and business pro Julie Bath partnered up to bring you these brands of small producer, small batch Sake. They have created a portfolio that represents some of the top sake regions in Japan, as well as, a diverse range of styles. Lots of visual aid at this tasting!
JUNE 14: Hungarian Dreams / HOSTED BY ERIC DANCH OF BLUE DANUBE
If you’ve even had the pleasure of listening to our friend Eric Danch (aka the hardest working man in the wine business) wax poetic about Hungarian Wines, well then you are most likely already booked to witness it again. But if you haven’t been so lucky, then you better clear your calendar for Wednesday and hop on board the Blue Danube Express. Eric will escort you to the ancient volcanos of Somló and Tokaj and introduce you to grapes varieties like Hárslevelű and Kadarka. He will bewitch your palate with a dry Szamorodni that could teach Sherry or Vin Jaune a thing or two about Umami and then finish you off with a sweet nectar that will infect your dreams. And he’ll still save room for endless anecdotes about illegal late night border crossings into Serbia in search of the oldest Kadarka vines in existence.
JUNE 21: Spotlight Nebbiolo
JUNE 28: Sherry Baby!
SUMMER TASTINGS WILL RESUME IN AUGUST
