At our usual, weekly wine tastings, we are often sampling versions of the two most popular wines grapes, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. But tonight we wanted to explore some lesser known, but very delicious grapes or grape blends that are also a delight to taste. Hence the title “Anything But Cabernet or Chardonnay”. Reservations to appreciate these alternate wines are appropriate and can be made by calling (813) 879-2931. Click on the Title above to see the list of ABC wines that we want you to taste.
