Friday Tasting: Amphora Wines

  • Mom & Pop Wine Shop 6908 NE Sandy Blvd Portland OR (map)

What goes around comes around. And these days, it seems winemakers are digging into historical traditions for new inspiration. I think the Slow Food Movement can be credited with bringing attention to traditional and ancient food and beverage ways. Now with a better scientific understanding of the biology and chemistry at play than our ancestors had, the wine world is bringing ancient wine styles (albeit cleaner and more stable wines) onto the modern table. Weโ€™ll be tasting some selections from the Republic of Georgia, where the use of amphora never really disappeared as well as some from Italy & Spain.
As usual, $5 four wines and snacks.
