As it turns out, we stock many of the more recent releases. So we’re doing a taste and compare wine and food pairing of these “lost” wines with their more modern brothers and sisters.

Join us for The Lost Cellar, Saturday, January 28 at Assorted Table Wine Shoppe @ 7th Street Public Market. Eight wines (four comparison pairings). Four courses prepared by Chef Taylor.

Cost: $50 (+tax/tip). Pre-Paid reservations only.
