Event Description

Everything Old is New Again!

And in this case, the new is better than ever.

Chablis, Soave, Asti Spumante...  these are "retro" names in need of a reputation boost.

Why? High-quality expressions of these wines are among the best in the world. But, the versions that were introduced into the US market in the 1960s and 1970s were mass-produced, cheap, sweet, and generally poor expressions of their types.  
Join Bob Barrett and Jet Wine Bar as we taste 5, modern examples of these "retro" wines. Relax and learn just how good they can be!  Light snacks provided.
