Upcoming Tasting Schedule

I’m excited to unveil my Events Schedule through the end of 2012.

I’ve got four exciting events left that you won’t want to miss!

If you have never been to a Perman Wine Selections tasting, they are a great way to educate yourself on the world of wine. Typically lasting a couple of hours, I pour 8-10 wines based on a specific topic, guiding you through what is being tasted. The tastings can be enjoyed by all levels of wine drinkers, from the newbie to the experienced connoisseur. Above all, the tastings are a lot of fun and we get to taste some amazing wines.

Please note, of these four tastings, the October 18th tasting should be signed up for online at https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=26380

France vs. The Rest of the World – Part 3
Thursday, October 18th
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Please sign up online at https://clients.mindbodyonline.com/ASP/home.asp?studioid=26380

One of my most popular tastings returns!

Ask a wine expert what where the greatest Pinot Noir in the world comes from and most will answer Burgundy. Ask who makes the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world, and one might argue that a grower in Sancerre does. France is home to some of the world’s greatest wines, but that hasn’t stopped the rest of the world from trying to make their own great world class wines. In many cases other countries and regions outside of France have outclassed their mentor.

This tongue-in-cheek tasting/competition will feature five flights of two wines each. One from a famed French appellation and the other, composed of the same varietal, just from a different part of the world.

France is 2-0, so let’s see if “The World” can finally take France down!

Piedmont Night / a.k.a. Barolo Night
Wednesday, November 7th
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
$70 per person
Contact Craig directly for reservations

You’ve heard the song “I Left My Heart in San Francisco.” Well, I left my heart and liver in Piemonte! The famed Italian region located in Northwest Italy is home to some of the world’s greatest red wines. From Dolcetto and Barbera, to the king grape Nebbiolo, the diversity within the region and their ability to show terroir makes it a fascinating study.

Typically I’ve named this event “Barolo Night” in the past, as the focus of this tasting is always on Barolo. This year, I hope to give an extra nod to Dolcetto and Barbera, as these two grapes are more accessible to drink on a nightly basis. Don’t worry though, I’ll still be pouring at least 6 stupendous Baroli!

So come check out the latest and most exciting wines from Piedmont, including many of the newly released 2008 Baroli.

Champagne Fest 2012!
Thursday, December 6th and Friday, December 7th
7:00 PM – 9:30 PM
$95 per person
Contact Craig directly for reservations

If you love Champagne like I do, you will not want to miss the annual Champagne Fest at Perman Wine Selections!

Over two nights, 20 different Champagnes will be poured! As always, the focus of this year’s tasting is on Grower Champagne houses. Over the past two decades, the emergence of growers turned producers has allowed us to focus in more and more on the terroir of Champagne. I believe Champagne to be France’s most exciting, experimental, and changed appellation in that time period.

This is a “no holds barred” type of tasting. We won’t sit around and drink NV Champagne all night, we will definitely get into some serious, serious stuff!

I hesitate to refer to this as a taste – it is a Champagne Fest! Come ready to party!
