Blending different grapes together has been the winemaker's main tool for making better and more interesting wines for centuries. Furthermore, it gives the resulting blends balance, depth, complexity, and makes the wine more complete. That's why American wine enthusiasts are fascinated by the details of what each winemaker has created in his own, distinct culmination of grapes, both red and white. Tonight we will delve into ten custom-made concoctions, and have some fun figuring out exactly what we are tasting in these blends. Reservations are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking (813) 879-2931. Check back here soon to see which wines we have selected for our gathering this night.
