Lower Falls Wine Co., one of my favorite local wine stores, has two special tasting events upcoming.
Hirsch Pinot Noir & Chardonnay Tasting
Saturday, November 8th, from 2:00-4:00
"Please join us in welcoming Jasmine Hirsch at her first in-store appearance! Hirsch has long been one of our favorite producers of Californian pinot noir. The Hirsch site, often referred to as America's Grand Cru, is exceptionally well-suited to pinot, yielding wines of balance, elegance and fruit concentration. We will be tasting their current release pinot noirs as well as the Hirsch Vineyards Chardonnay which, in keeping with Hirsch tradition, blew us away at a recent tasting. We eagerly await this unique opportunity to taste the line with invaluable insight and commentary from Jasmine."
A couple months ago, I tasted the 2006 Hirsch Vineyards Bohan Dillon Pinot Noir and thought it was excellent. I had also done a bit more research into the winery and really liked what I found. This should be a fascinating tasting so I highly recommend you go.
Gordon & MacPhail Whisky Tasting
Thursday, November 13th, from 5:00-6:30
"Back by popular demand, Michael Urqhart returns to guide us through the vast world of Scotch whisky! Fourth generation proprietor, Michael brings a wealth of knowledge and unbridled enthusiasm to the category. Each year, this tasting is a wonderful learning opportunity as well as a chance to taste a fine spectrum of whiskys."
There will be special discounts at both events. As always, their tastings are complementary, casual affairs and no RSVP required.
