Strolling Wine Tasting – April 1

Posted on

On Friday, April 1, we return with our second Strolling Wine Tasting which will feature vendors pouring over 50 selections accompanied by sumptuous Hors D’Oeuvres. This is a participatory event – you rate the wines and I purchase the top offerings and put them on our list.

Cost is $49 per person for this mini Wine Festival from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Many folks stayed for a light dinner after our inaugural event in September – and all who attended raved and asked that we do it again!  April Fools Day is the perfect opportunity to taste so many wines – and get a little foolish! Also, a great night for a downtown sleepover!

Hall Winery Wine Dinner – March 22

Posted on

Please join us on Tuesday, March 22, to welcome Vintner Kathryn Hall of Hall Wines to savor some of the most exclusive and wonderful Cabernets that you will ever enjoy! Kathryn Hall is passionate, successful and has distinguished herself in the wine world, as an attorney, in private business and in government.  She served as the United States Ambassador to Austria from 1997 – 2001!   We will sample her Cabernet Sauvignon ’06 – #18 in Wine Spectator’s top 100 – along with the new Cabernet release from 2007.  However, her single vineyard offerings – the Bergfeld Cabernet – 92 points ($100) and her Kathryn Hall Cabernet ’07 ($80) promise to be the real show stoppers!  Give her a Pittsburgh welcome, enjoy this prestigious dinner and learn about her many interesting life experiences!
