Tuesday, Nov 14 -- GIVE A GUESS Time for a bit of mystery wine! Join to taste & guess if you can! Here's your hint for this week's wine: A white varietal with flavors of apricot, green apple. Good acidity, but still a good, round food wine. Can you give a guess? Tasting runs 5-7pm.
Wednesday, Nov 15 --SCHNÄPPCHEN TASTING Schnäppchen is German for a "crazy-good deal" and we taste a wine that fits the bill every Wednesday from 5-7pm. This week: Réserver de Génerac Costières de Nímes Rosé -- Reg $13.99 | Mixed Case $11.19 -- Classic Rhône! Raspberry, black currant, cherries, white pepper with lingering hillside herbs.
Thursday, Nov 16 -- FOOD+WINE ...TURKEY DINNER IN 4 WINE LESSONS
It's not the bird as much as what we eat with it (sweet potatoes & heaven-forbid marshmallows, cranberry sauce, fruit salad, etc.) that causes the wine challenges with a turkey dinner, but it's not that hard. There are 4 sure shots to a good pairing! #4 JUICY REDS -- Join us from 5-7pm to talk about which red grapes are "juicy" and why they work!
Friday, Nov 17 -- LUCK OF THE DRAW
Portalis owner Jens Strecker is German and just doesn't get what all the turkey fuss is about! He's happy to hook you up with good wine for yours, but he and his family will enjoy an alternative Thanksgiving feast! Their tradition? Raclette -- a delicious Swiss melting cheese served over boiled new potatoes with a delicious salad on the side. Join him to taste his wine picks for this meal -- all from France: Réserve du Chevalier Crémant de Bourgogne, La Galante Bordeaux Blanc & Les Collégiales Vacqueyras. Tasting runs 5-7pm. TGIF!
