Wednesday Night Flights – The Blood of Jove, The Many Faces of Sangiovese

Swirl Wine Bar
Getting there
3143 Ponce De Leon St, New Orleans, LA

It has been said that Sangiovese, the soul of Tuscan wine, gets its name from the Latin sanguis (blood) jovis (the Roman God Jupiter).
While there are many other contradicting enonyms for the word, one thing that is clear is that Sangiovese is the defining grape of Italy.
Join Erin and Uznea for a celebration of the grape with wines from Italy, Corsica and California - we'll feature a sparkling rosé and 3 delicious reds!
If you'd like a little something to snack on with your wine, resident cheesemonger Casey Foote will select and present a pairing plate ($10 with flight, $15 without the flight). No standing in line for our Wednesday flights - you sit at a table, we come to you and pour tableside complete with lots of educational info on what you are drinking. The flight of 4 wines is $20 - reservations are highly recommended as we can only seat walk-ins if space allows. All wines and cheeses are available for purchase to have at Swirl or you can take them to go. Class Policies:-As with all of our tastings and classes we ask that you not wear perfume, cologne or any other strong scents that could interfere with the wine's aromas for you and those around you.-Refunds can be made with a minimum 3 days advance notice. Credit cannot be given towards future classes.
