It’s already gotten to that point in the summer (I know it technically started two days ago, but it’s been hot for eight weeks already) where I am seeking out inexpensive wine tastings on two consecutive nights. Whatever you have to do to get through, right?
The Fair Grounds Race Course kicks off its wine tasting series this evening from 6-8. It’s $25 to taste 25 wines–which seems to be the going rate. This week is a sampling from Oregon and Washington State producers–my favorite wine region. Varietals include chenin blanc, chardonnay, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir, zinfandel and more.
