Heard It Through The Grapevine
O.K., so you can tell the difference between a chardonnay and a chablis without even taking a sip. That’s better than a lot of people can boast. But if you really want to impress your date the next time you recommend something to go with her Chilean sea bass, you’ll want to have a pretty good idea what you’re talking about. If you’re afraid that going out and buying a lot of bottles for sampling might break the bank, trendy wine bar and restaurant ZIN has come up with an ideal solution. Beginning in April, every Friday night guests will have the opportunity to sample a new wine by the glass from different countries and regions of the world, and the first glass is on the house. No obligations to order a whole bottle, or to stick around for dinner, though the French oysters in wine sauce would be an excellent reason to do so. Just keep in mind that if your date decides to go with the sea bass, she’ll want to get the 1998 Louis Latour Grand Cru to wash it down with :-)
