This Saturday we are proud to feature Certified Sommelier and former beverage director for The District Steakhouse: Lucas!
Sommeliers are always on the hunt for value. For many, that means exploring lesser known wine regions that remain obscure, despite producing excellent wines. Join Lucas, as he guides you through hidden gems strewn throughout the Southern Hemisphere. We’ll take a heartfelt look at the unnoticed Pinot Noirs of New Zealand and explore the deeply satisfying merits of dry Australian Riesling. Beyond, he’ll briefly illuminate the value in South African blends and familiar reds from Chile & Argentina.
Demystify and discover the little-known wines we Somms rely on when we’re living on a less-than-Champagne budget!
Saturday, May 2nd at 3 p.m. CST
