In wine world lingo, “old school” refers to the esteemed wineries and pioneer winemakers that set the standards and basic rules for a fast-growing wine industry in the 1970’s and 80’s. Tonight we pay homage to those early touchstone names that were very much “in” then and now seem quaint or passe’. We will taste 3 whites and 7 reds that are all familiar, but often overlooked in the new and “next best thing” world of wine. Reservations to join us are appreciated and can be made by calling or clicking 813-879-2931. Click on the Title above to reveal which 10 parochial products we will be pouring this evening.
