Our two November tastings are meant to provide some options for your Thanksgiving table. From Noelia Ricci, we'll taste a white from Trebbiano and a red made from Sangiovese. Emilia-Romagna, on the other side of the Apennines from Tuscany, is arguably the birthplace of Sangiovese. The Noelia Ricci vineyards cover just 7 hectares of the 140 that comprise the family farm, called Tenuta Pandolfa near Predappio. We will definitely delve into the Manifesto that introduces Noelia Ricci as "the story of those who never stop dreaming."Find out more »

Barbera and Nebbiolo from Piedmont, of course, but Pinot Noir?. . . yes, from Gian Luca Colombo, a young, driven, thoughtful winemaker who farms just over 5 hectares, organically and with biodynamic practices. Gian Luca may be the most intense winemaker who has led a tasting at Windham Wines. That intensity translates into the bottle as he produces just 1700 cases across the 5 wines he makes. Join us for a trip to the Langhe, led by Gian Luca.Find out more »

We are tasting a bit later than usual since we are heading west rather than east. Kivelstadt's winemaker, Sam Baron, is a young whippersnapper, full of ideas and the energy to experiment.

Join us for an interesting, informative conversation while enjoying some lovely wines.Find out more »
