Ok, once again I am attempting to get a couple of new Scotches in the state – Kilchoman, Tamdu, Arran and then Chieftains as an i ndependent bottler.  But once again, I am having trouble getting this all confirmed.  So, what I will say is that if you sign up now for this Scotch tasting, we’re going to pour you some great stuff, I just don’t quite know what it is yet!
The Rosé Festival
Date: Saturday, June 4
Time: Noon to 4 pm
Location: Waterford Wine Company

Rosé – no longer your grandmother’s blush wine. Dry rose is serious stuff: it drinks like a red wine but you chill it like a white. Is it the ultimate patio pounder? Or is it the gateway to delicious hedonism for those of us who usually just drink red? Whatever your motive, come to the festival and explore some of the best rosés available in Wisconsin!

Complementary Cabernets? Napa and Bordeaux, Compared
Date: Thursday, June 23
Time: 6 pm to 7:30
Location: Waterford Wine Company
Cost: $30 per person, credited towards a six bottle purchase
Format: Seminar, RSVP required

Bordeaux and Napa Valley – the world’s premier Cabernet wine growing regions. Are they so different from one another?

Is Bordeaux, through the pursuit of ripeness, concentration, and new oak, becoming more and more like Napa? Or perhaps Napa, under the signature of balance and elegance, is growing more and more like Bordeaux.

This tasting is aimed at exploring a thought – maybe not one that the vintners themselves would ever care to entertain – that Napa and Bordeaux are now more alike than ever. Through a combination of wines, we will try and match the two, comparing new and old, traditional and modern. For anyone exploring Bordeaux (or Napa) for the first time, this will be an eye-opening tasting.

Wines to be tasted:
2011 Pontet Canet $129.99
2010 Smith Madrone Spring Mountain Cabernet $49.99
2010 Branaire Ducru Duluc $34.99
2011 Seavey Cabernet Napa $99.99
