In addition to our vertical tastings, the weekend of August 20th & 21st, we will be covering up our regularly scheduled flight with brown paper bags. Why do we do this? We want to make sure you don’t have any preconceptions about the wine before you try it. This is a great why to come into a tasting flight without any mental baggage. So be brave, try the mystery wine flight with an open mind. When we reveal what you’ve tasted, you might just discover your new favorite wine… And to make things interesting, if you guess the wine, special discounts will be awarded to you!
August is Vertical Tasting Month at Seven of Hearts! What’s a vertical tasting you ask? It’s a wine tasting flight composed of the same wine type but compares the different years in which the wine has been produced (aka, the vintage). So you will work your way from tasting older vintages to tasting current vintage wines, so you’re moving along “vertically”. This is a great way to study how weather & winemaking techniques completely change the character of a wine. So if you want to enjoy aged wine and learn something along the way, we’ll see you this August!
