Spotlight Beyond Tuscany – A Tour of Central Italy’s Hidden Gems with Jim Hutton, Vias Imports
Thursday, October 19 @ 7pm
Course Fee $30

A big, famous, wine region like Tuscany can steal all the spotlight from lesser known neighbors.  Which means at a time with the average quality of Italian wine is at an all-time high, you can find great wines and even greater values by looking beyond Tuscany to neighboring regions like Lazio, Umbria, Abruzzo & Emila Romagna.  And no one is better equipped to help you find those values than our great friend Jim Hutton, of leading Italian-owned importer Vias Imports.

We’ll range north of Tuscany to Emilia Romagna, east to Umbria and The Marche and down south to Rome’s Lazio region.  In all, we’ll pour 8 wines including Cesanese from Lazio, Sagrantino from Umbria, stunning Montepulciano from Abbruzo and even a fun and delicous Lambrusco!  See the full wine list and reserve your seats online here or just call the store at 703.356.6500.


Spotlight on Glorious 2015 Burgundy from Domaine Vincent Girardin
Tuesday, October 24 @ 7pm
Course Fee $40

Tasting Domaine Vincent Girardin’s 2015 white and red Burgundies at the winery last March was one of the highlights of a trip full of them.  We can’t get you all to the winery to share that experience, so we’re bringing the winery and GM Marco Caschera to you!  If you love the great Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines of Burgundy, these selections will provide stunning delight.  And if you’re wondering what the fuss is about Burgundy and the 2015 vintage…well, you’ll “get it” after this tasting!

Marco will be sharing with us the story of how Vincent Girardin created this benchmark estate while pouring 8 wines – including a magnificent Grand Cru Corton-Charlemagne!  Click here for the full wine list and to reserve your seats online.
