Winemaker Dinner with Pulenta

Our 2017 Winemaker Dinner Series continues!

Join us for our next dinner on May 9th.

 

Meet Diego Pulenta of one of Mendoza's most influential wineries:

Pulenta!

 

The Pulenta family has been making wine in Argentina since 1912, briefly after they arrived from Italy. The third generation, brothers Hugo and Eduardo, started Pulenta Estate in 2002 to produce small lots of exceptional wines from two pioneering vineyards their father Antonio planted in the early 80’s and 90’s, one in Alto Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo; the other one in Los Arboles, in Valle de Uco. The winery produces three lines: La Flor, Pulenta Estate and Pulenta Gran. All wines are 100% estate farmed with specific vineyard management for each line. Harvesting decisions at Pulenta seek ripeness with no traces of greenness, and right before any jammy notes develop, with a focus on balance and elegance.

 

We will be pouring the following wines from Pulenta:

2015 Pulenta Estate Sauvignon Blanc

2015 Pulenta Estate Chardonnay

2013 Pulenta Gran Cabernet Franc

2012 Pulenta Estate ‘Gran Corte’

 

Try the flight for $30, or our 5-course pairing menu for $85. Reservations required. Open seating from 5pm to 8:30pm.

Why we taste wine- drinking vs tasting (drink whatever you like, taste to communicate about wine)

How we taste wine- sight, swirl, smell, taste

Sight- what are we looking for? What are legs?

Swirl- how and why? Why does wine have so many flavors? What is corked wine?

Smell- smelling is tasting. Learning the language of smells.

Taste- what flavors can we taste in wine? What are tannins? What is acidity? What is weight?
