Events Calendar Update – 2/6/10

Hello and Happy Friday!

A Perman Wine tasting is a great way to learn more about wine, as well as get a chance to taste before you buy. Each tasting comes with a theme to let us delve head first into. All levels of tasters are welcome, Perman Wine is a wine snob-free zone.

This year I will also offer a series of retrospective tastings, where older wine will be highlighted. For anyone that cellars wine or wonders what older wine tastes like these will be a must to attend.

Finally, many of you have been wondering when my collaborative dinners with X-Marx would return, and today I announce what promises to be a very exciting beer dinner, “A Taste of the Belgian Provinces.”

Mark your calendars and reserve your spots today for the following upcoming events at Perman Wine Selections.



Southern Italy or Bust!
Thursday, February 25th
7:00 8:30 P.M.
14 spots available RSVP today

A wave of improvement in wine quality in Italy has occurred in the last twenty years. Like that wave which starts at the top, the revolution began in Northern Italy and has now cascaded to Southern Italy. Regions like Campania, Puglia, and Sicily are loaded with interesting white and red wines from varietals like Aglianico, Negroamaro, and Nerello Mascalese. We will taste a small slice of some of the best wines from these areas.

Retrospective tasting Châteauneuf-du-Pape grows old
Thursday, March 4th
7:00 8:30 P.M.
14 spots available RSVP today

One of the most famed appellations in all of France, Châteauneuf-du-Pape holds a dear place in many wine drinkers memories. One of the major problems with the wine of the region is that they taste so darn good young. Kind of difficult to keep your hands off! But when you can, the drinker is rewarded with aromatic fireworks and a symphony of flavors. This retrospective tasting will feature wines from Château de Beaucastel, Domaine de la Janasse, Charvin and more.

Beer enthusiasts must mark their calendar now for what will be a very special Belgian beer dinner. I am teaming up with X-Marx once again for this great evening.

We are honored to be joined by Don Feinberg and Wendy Littlefield of Vanberg & De Wulf. Two of the most authoritative figures on Belgian beer in the United States. Their import company brings some of Belgians best beers to our tables here in the United States. More details to come, so put a do not disturb sign on that date, because you wont want to miss this.

United Nations of Pinot Noir

Wednesday, March 24th
7:00 8:30 P.M.
14 spots available RSVP today

Seemingly every corner of the world is producing and excelling at great Pinot Noir. At this tasting these Pinots unite for what should be a very interesting comparison tasting. There will be Pinot Noir from New Zealand, Australia, Burgundy, Austria, California, Oregon, Slovenia, Germany and Italy. I dont think any convincing is necessary to get you to this one!


Retrospective tasting Red Burgundy after 10
Wednesday, March 31st
7:00 9:00 P.M.
14 spots available RSVP today

To the Pinot Noir fan, Burgundy is the holy grail for Pinot Noir to cellar. A carefully aged bottle from the famed region is not only a study in deliciousness, but also in the soil that it comes from. Burgundy and the notion of “terroir” are forever linked, but this really is present when those bottles hit age 10. At this retrospective tasting we will taste Burgundy, all 10 years or older. The focus will be on those from the 95, 96, 97, and 98 vintages. This is a special tasting, and should sell out quickly.

A Spanish Nightcap
Friday, April 9th
9:00 10:30 P.M.
14 spots available RSVP today

Come join me for my first ever late night tasting. Spain is all about late night living. So why not celebrate one of my favorite wine countries by having a late night tasting? Here we will take a broad look at some of the most intriguing Spanish wines available. Expect Rioja, but also taste from regions like Ribeira Sacra, Jumilla, Valdeorras and more. Both white and red wines will be poured. Glow sticks will be provided for those going out to the clubs afterwards (that was a joke!).
