Jet Wine Bar: Wine Tasting for Halloween: Dante’s Inferno

October 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


Wine and the Divine… Comedy, Part 1: the Inferno

We are pairing wine and terror, just in time for Halloween.

You mean “terroir”? No. Terror! Dante Alighieri’s The Inferno (Part 1 of the Divine Comedy) takes us through 9 circles of hell, each one recounting evils done by the wretched inhabitants within (spoooookyyy). Who were those people? What did they do? Most importantly, what wine is now made where they sinned horribly?

We’ll vist Florence, Istria, Piemonte, Sicily, and Romagna, and taste these wines:

San Quirico, Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2015
Bruno Trapan, Istria Malvazija Ponente 2015
Castelfelder, Mont Mes Cuvee Rosso Vig delle Dolomiti IGT 2014
Palazzo Malgara Nerello Mascalese Terre Siciliane IGT 2015
Villa Bagnolo, Sangiovese di Romagna Riserva Sassetto 2015
(wines subject to change due to PLCB peculiarities)

BONUS: A limited quantity of these bottles will be available for sale to-go!

This tasting will be led by Jill Weber, Jet’s owner and our Wining Archaeologist. Let her guide you through 5 wines and their unique histories.

Your $35 ticket entitles you to our 5-wine tasting plus light snacks, as well as 15% off your evening’s bar tab AND special pricing on bottles of the evening’s wines (for to-go sales). Seating is limited.
