Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $30 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase

Nothing in the wine world can compare to the elegance and sophistication of Burgundy.

Yet for how wonderful it is, red Burgundy can be a bit of a mystery – what is the grape (it’s not on the label); what do all those different and funny French names mean?  And, why do the different crus taste different from each other?

At this tasting, we offer a thorough and exciting tour through some of the great wines of Burgundy!

Winemaker Dinner: Donkey & Goat

Date: Tuesday, September 8
Time: 6 pm
Location: All Purpose Restaurant
Cost: $60 per person (includes all food and wine, but not gratuity)

While often marked as “natural winemakers” first and foremost, Donkey & Goat is more accurately portrayed as thoughtful but ambitious traditionalists working in the New World California climate.

Tracey & Jared Brandt, owners of Donkey & Goat, work diligently to keep their fruit pristine and conditions for winemaking strictly controlled so that they can allow nature to run her course during the fermentations.  This means very close work with growers, careful handling on the sorting table, and thorough preparation in the cellar.

Here are some of the most radical and intriguing wines to come out of California in decades.  Join us and AP Restaurant as we welcome Jared Brandt, owner and winemaker at Donkey & Goat, as he introduces his wines to Wisconsin.

Wines to be tasted:
2013 Donkey & Goat Stonecrusher Roussanne $34.99
2013 Donkey & Goat Helluva Pinot Noir $29.99
2014 Donkey & Goat Improbable Chardonnay $24.99
2014 Donkey & Goat Mourvedre Rose “Claim Jumper” El Dorado            $19.99
2013 Donkey & Goat Five Thirteen Red Blend $34.99
2012 Donkey & Goat Perli Syrah $44.99
