Wines from the Old Old World

$55.00

There are distinct advantages to drinking the unknown. The quality to price ratio of grapes and places we can’t pronounce from places we can’t readily find on a map can often be ridiculously high.  We’ll taste a winemaking method with over 8000 years of unbroken history in the Republic of Georgia, a grape only found on one island off of the Croatian coast, a relative of Zinfandel hiding in Montenegro, a Hungarian grape known for “Bulls Blood,” Biodynamics in Bosnia and Herzegovina, and a rosè made from one of Giacomo Casanova’s favorite grapes in Slovenia.  All wine retails under $20!

Yes Way Rose

$55.00

This two hour tasting and discussion, led by Vinny Eng, will explore a selection of thirst quenching, pink and orange wines. We'll taste for qualities like salinity and explore the breadth of textures wines can express. 

Our remarkable friend and neighbor, Tartine Bakery, is generously providing a selection of their extraordinary bread for this event. Served with Vella Butter, it is reason enough to raise a glass!

$20.00

It's that time of year! Bi-Rite Market's Spring Wine Blitz is the following week, which means 20% off their entire wine selection when you buy 12 bottles or more (mixed cases are ok!). Join us at 18 Reasons for the Blitz Preview and taste over 20 bottles of Trac and Co's favorite wine; come Blitz time you can purchase wisely.
