Bottle Rockets: Taste 45 Pinot Noirs for $40 on Tuesday, May 1


Wow–Sigel’s is making it really easy to wrap your arms around Pinot Noir, that finicky grape of Burgundy fame that every sommelier in town will tell you we all love but takes a back seat to big Cali cabs.

Sigel’s is co-sponsoring what’s billed as a Benchmark Pinot Noir Tasting, and it’s the single best wine tasting event I’ve seen in months.

On Tuesday, May 1, from 5:30-8pm,  you can sample 45 different Pinots from California, Oregon, New Zealand and Burgundy in one place– the Park City Club, 5356 Sherry Lane in Dallas — for just $40. Teamed with heavy appetizers (beef tenderloin, cheeses, quesadillas), this is gonna be a terrific tasting. Sigel’s is also offering special pricing on bottles of the same wines to savor later.

But to attend, you have to reserve in advance (214-350-1271). Don’t miss this one.

Here’s what’s on the menu. (vt=vintage, press: ratings from various wine publications)
