Events Calendar Update – November 4th, 2009

Perman Wine Selections Events Calendar Update

A special winemaker tasting with a legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer
Tuesday, November 10th
7 P.M. – 9 P.M.

$50 per person
14 seats available…rsvp by e-mail or phone

I know it is last minute, but it is very rare to get a chance to sit down and taste wine with an incredible winemaker from a legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer.  Such will be the case next Tuesday evening when Frédéric Coulon of Domaine de Beaurenard will be here for a small, sit down wine tasting.

The Coulon’s can trace their roots in the region back over 300 years-that’s even generations of wine-growers!  Needless to say they own some pretty special vineyards in both Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Rasteau.  We will taste eight wines from these regions, as well as their great white Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and their great value Côtes du Rhône.

No other hype is needed because lets face it, this is a great opportunity to learn and taste some beautiful wines from the region.


Pinot Days descends upon Chicago, so help kick it off here at Perman Wine Selections!
Friday, November 13th
5 P.M. – 7:30 P.M. – Stop in anytime during this period

Pinot Noir fans do not miss this opportunity to stop into Perman Wine on Friday, November 13th.  I will have winemakers and representatives from seven different Pinot Noir producers representing California, Oregon, and Germany.

Who’s coming?  Mike Sullivan, winemaker of Benovia in Russian River Valley.  Justin Willett, winemaker of Tyler in Santa Barbara.  Cory Davis, sales manager of Stoller Vineyards in Oregon.  Damien Casten, owner of Candid Wines, representing Girasole (Mendocino), Scherrer (Russian River), Keller (Germany) and Ziegler (Germany).

This is an informal meet and taste format, so stop in anytime between 5 P.M. and 7:30 P.M. to taste the wines.

These are producers that are really trying to produce artisan wines. They are pouring a great line up of wines!

Spots are limited, so rsvp as soon as possible!


Pinot Days is one of the great tastings of the year, and a must for any Pinot Noir enthusiast.  The details are as follows:
