The tasting is to be held on our beautiful English Garden hosted by Deirdre O’Dwyer (formerally of WineSellar & Brasserie and Paon) who will enchant you with her knowledge and love of wine. We here at Jaynes have an appreciation for wines found off the beaten path, with a focus on terroir and zero manipulation. The Rosés that we will be tasting not only follow these principals, they are delicious and hard to come by too. From the wine geek chic 1998 R. Lopez De Heredia to the elegant Robert Sinskey Vin Gris of Pinot Noir from Carneros we will be presenting the very best of the best. Psst…we will also be pouring the coveted Domaine Tempier Rosé!

Greek Austerity You Want? 2010 Domaine Sigalas Asirtiko-Athiri at Jaynes Gastropub

As the Greek crisis unfolds I just received this incredible picture from  Jaynes comrade Jeremy Parzen taken from the Sigalas Winery in Santorini.   Jeremy has spent the past year as an ambassador for Greek wines heading up the Boutari Social Media Project and I urge you to  head over to his blog and read about his Aegean adventure at Do Bianchi happening right now.

We've been digging into a lot of the lesser publicized yet great wine regions this year.   The Greek wines in particular have filled our punch card full of high marks.   We are now pouring the 2010 Domaine Sigalas Asirtiko-Athiri by the glass. This is a mineral driven wine with racy acidity and generous fruit.  An excellent hot weather seafood wine,no doubt, that I would liken to a Loire Valley Muscadet with just a touch of salinity from the nearby sea.   This predominant grape is Asirtiko or Assyrtiko that is native to the island of Santorini where wine has been made for over 3500 years. The vines grow in a soil of Volcanic ash in a unique basket shaped pattern to protect themselves from the sea winds and high temperatures. Talk about terroir!

Get back safe Jeremy and thanks for your positive coverage of Greece.   They sure could use it right about now.
