Free Wine Tasting
5-7pm at CoolVines (Grove & Powerhouse locations)
In a wine world enamored with skin-contact and rustic wine productions, the intrepid wine drinker need look no farther than the wines of Georgia for textbook examples of the styles being reproduced all over the world. The wines, which are often made using long periods of skin-contact in clay vessels called qvevri (“kway-vree”), have a structure and character this is completely unique. Join us this Friday to taste some of our favorites from the cradle of wine itself.
