Wine Tasting Picks for Tonight: Thursday, February 25

Free Indian syrah at Vino Verite, Airfield Estates at Picnic, and five Australians plus snacks at Grand Cru.

February 25, 2010

So you’ve probably spent the afternoon thinking about how you haven’t ever tried a smoky syrah from India, right? Well tonight you can. Portland-based distributor Rupert Kanuri of Premium Vintage will be at Vino Verite on Capitol Hill pouring the Indian wine, plus an aged pinot noir from Oregon and a couple of other bottles (thanks for tip CHS). The tasting runs from 6 to 8pm and is free.

Picnic in Phinney Ridge is pouring wines from Airfield Estates—you are going to love the unoaked chardonnay. The tasting runs from 5:30 to 7:30pm, includes six wines plus snacks, and costs $8.

And in Bellevue, Grand Cru has a $15 tasting at the bar: try five Australians while you snack on truffled popcorn, cheese, bread, nuts, and olives.
