|Hello and Happy Friday!
Txakoli (pronounced Chock-o-lee) is the word of the day here at Perman Wine Selections!
Our Friday Feature explores what is Spain’s most refreshing white – you know, that traditional slightly fizzy one from the Basque region.
I’m also very excited to announce that for the 5th year in a row, I’ve teamed up with my friends from Fat Rice to host our annual Txakoholika.
For one night only, we are turning Fat Rice (2957 W. Diversey) into Chicago’s best Pintxos and Petiscos bar. Your $55 ticket includes both the food and a glass of five different Txakolina.
Reserve your spot today, by clicking here!
Please note, this event sells out every year. When you go to the Eventbrite sight, you will be able to choose what time slot you would like to come. There are only 20 spots per half hour, with the length of the event clearly notated.
Keep in mind, this isn’t a traditional sit down meal, rather an informal gathering where everyone stands, snacks on small bites, and guzzles Txakoli. It is always a great time!
Please let me know if you have any questions about the event whatsoever.
Speaking of tastings, we are back with another Routier this evening! The theme is “Islands in the Stream.” So come island hop and taste the following three wines, along with a little “snack” of cheese and almonds, all for only $25 per person. Tonight we are tasting the following:
2011 Graci Etna Bianco, Sicily
2011 Yves Leccia Ile de Beauté, Corsica
2011 Nuraghe Crabioni Cannonau di Sardegna, Sardegna
Hope you have a great weekend, and Happy Father’s Day to all the Dad’s out there!
