Burgundy with Bill Summerville

On Wednesday, October 11 (from 6-8pm), Bill Summerville will guide us through a tasting of eight Burgundies from the cellar of New France Wine Co. to answer the question: what are the effects of producer, site and vintage on Burgundy? This is a rare opportunity to taste wines from illustrious producers such as Jayer-Gilles and Leroy and fabled 1er Cru and Grand Cru sites for just $40 a ticket! (That's less than any of the bottles of wine we'll be tasting!)

Square Table Series 2.0: Autumnal/Winter Rosés

The highlight of our spring rosé class (besides the wines!) was when a participant uttered, "Well now I want rosés in the winter too!" YES! YES! On October 17th, we'll talk in-depth about why rosés pair well with heavier fare, how to select them, what makes them so unique when comparing them to summer rosés and much more! 

In the second iteration of our successful Square Table Series, we'll delve into a few more sides of wine, some deeper, some lighter. Henry & Son's Jill Mott will talk through the nuances and myth that are vineyard soils, the brilliance of autumnal (and hibernal, a.k.a. winter) rosés and alternative holiday wines, all by themes requested by popular demand.

Square Table Series 2.0: Alternative Holiday Wines

Move over Champagne, Pinot Noir, and Riesling! 
I was elated when guests wanted to step out of their comfort zones to explore the distinctly special this holiday. Step aside Champagne. Move on over Pinot Noir. Riesling, we love you, but hang on to your hats, there are some secret finds this sommelier couldn't live without in the depths of a celebratory season!

Thursday Tasting: Fast Mary's Bloody Mary Enhancers

Thursday Tasting: Fast Mary's Bloody Mary Enhancers

Fast Mary’s Bloody Mary Enhancer is a dill-inspired, craft blend of seasonings to spruce up Bloody Mary. Fast Mary's contains no MSG, is gluten-free, and is naturally-vegan. This versatile beverage enhancer can be used in a variety of tasty cocktail classics from Bloody Marys to Martinis.

The idea behind Fast Mary’s Bloody Mary Enhancer came from the owner, a chemist, who developed the product while working as a bartender in Wisconsin. With ten people deep on a Saturday morning at the bar, she needed a mix of seasonings that could simply be added to a tomato base (tomato juice, V8 or Clamato) to make the perfect Bloody Mary, in little time. Many batches and tweaks were made over several years, to come up with the perfect blend.

Square Table Series 2.0: Soils

Is that schist in my glass? 
Many people speak of the "minerality" they taste in a wine or of certain wines smelling of the schist or slate or limestone soils the vines are grown in. Are vines a conduit for minerals, extracting them from the soil and depositing them in grapes? This is a very contested topic indeed but in the interest of science (and lore), we'll head into controversial territory to taste, discern and discuss. 

In the second iteration of our successful Square Table Series, we'll delve into a few more sides of wine, some deeper, some lighter. Henry & Son's Jill Mott will talk through the nuances and myth that are vineyard soils, the brilliance of autumnal (and hibernal, a.k.a. winter) rosés and alternative holiday wines, all by themes requested by popular demand.

Thursday Tasting: Rootstock pouring wines from Zev Rovine

This Thursday from 4-7pm, come taste wines from importer Zev Rovine. Some call Zev's wines natural but he says, "We buy wines we like. That sounds simplistic, but there isn’t really one winemaking philosophy that necessarily leads to good wine. We work with wines that are grown organically and are made with minimal intervention. We work with many wines that are made without any additions at all." Sounds natural to us.

The Geology of Wine with Zuccardi's Martin Distefano

The Geology of Wine with Zuccardi's Martin Distefano

The geology of wine is important to the wine-maker, but of very little importance to the drinker. Many wine writers who are not geologists have dutifully described the geology associated with particular wine regions without actually stating how the geology is important. ...a lot of what is written about geology in wine books is at best misguided and at worst utterly wrong...(1)

On Tuesday, August 15, geologist Martin Distefano, who has mapped Mendoza's Uco Valley and knows how vines grow differently though they may be only a meter apart, will offer a lecture (and tasting of single vineyard site specific wines from Familia Zuccardi) on the effects of soil on vines and winemaking. 

A nominal fee of $5, refundable with the purchase of wine, will be required to secure your spot. Buy tickets here.

Square Table Series: Welcome to Natural Wines!

Welcome to Natural Wines! SO2, Biodynamics, Low-Intervention, and Beyond!

Natural wines are difficult to navigate yet THE most joyful to drink. They are misunderstood and it's difficult to discern between wines on a shelf that are lower in SO2 additions, employ biodynamic farming methods, and those that do not. Thankfully at Henry & Son, we've got more than a slew of them and would love to take you on a lifelong ride via education and of course, tasting of some of our favorite wines crafted in a more sensible manner.
