Right after charity dinners at @avecchicago with rare Greek wines on Sunday and Monday, join us for the first Xinomavro blind tasting of Chicago. @eklektikon will be there with two Xinomavro blends; the organic PDO Goumenissa 2013 by @chatzivariti_winery and the also organic Sun red 2013 (Limniona / Xinomavro) of @kontozisis.organic.vineyards from Karditsa. Thanks to Sotiris Bafitis of @sbs_wines for putting everything together and bringing us all into one tasting.
Xinomavro is the most notable and age worthy red grape of Greece, known for its unique character, rich tannins, high acidity, and earthy aromas with notes of sun dried tomato and olives. Grown in West Macedonia and northern Thessaly, in the north part of Greece. •
So many lives and business were affected by the fires. #mywinestop#Repost @thevintnerproject
Jonathan Frey is a co-founder and the original winemaker of Frey Vineyards, a family-run organic winery in Mendocino County. Frey Vineyards is credited with being country's first organic and biodynamic winery. Today, Frey Vineyards is led by Jonathan's younger brother, Paul who considered a leader in the field of sulfite-free techniques.
Frey Vineyards lost its winery and bottling facility to the recent California wildfires. The state of their vineyard is still unclear but the Frey family is hopeful the damage is minimal. @freywine #freyvineyards#organicwine#biodynamicwine#rebuildwinecountry#TVP
Join FDM ArtsClub and our creative friends from @dejavuaudiosouth for a revolutionary analog experience where we crank up the quality of music rather than the volume. The result: acoustic heaven! October’s sneak peak Saturday, October 21st. For Reservations: Link in Bio.
Chacewater Highlander Red 2013 Sierra Foothills - Deep magenta color with medium ruby rim & very patent legs. Mild nose of plum and vanilla. Opening of black fruit favoring blackberries that was jammy with American oak, black pepper, black olives & a vanilla fade. Full bodied and average acidity with firm supple mature tannins that emerge slowly and fades gracefully. #goodtogomarket#organicwine
FARM FRIDAY 👩🏻🌾 Our crew started harvesting at 2:30 a.m. and picked a total of 14 bins of organically grown Grenache wine making grapes 🍇 Notice the FVA stamp on our bins? It’s so we get them back after the grapes are delivered to the winery 👍🏻
You may be familiar with Vitor Claro's elegant, perfumed wines made from field blends of native Portuguese varietals. But did you know that he was a chef before he got into wine? And a rather good one at that - running his own critically acclaimed restaurant near Lisbon. Vitor gave up cheffing in 2016 to concentrate 100% on winemaking, which is why we're very excited to announce that he'll be donning his whites - FOR 10 DAYS ONLY - to cook in Carousel's guest chef series. He'll be serving a specially planned menu of contemporary takes on Portuguese classics, carefully paired with a selection of his delicious wines.
You can book your tickets for Carousel Presents Vítor Claro via their website:
