Tandem Pairings III: Slovenia Rising
The wines of Kabaj, from northeastern Slovenia, are truly extraordinary and unique. Jean-Michel Morel was born in Bordeaux, but found his calling while making wine in the ancient ways traditional to Georgia. Made from white wine grapes fermented for up to a month on their skins, these are amber-hued wines that take on more of a character of reds: that much intensity, power and drive.
This sometimes controversial practice has surfed a bit of a trend recently, but Morel is a true master, and Wine & Spirits Magazine recently recognized the greatness of Kabaj, naming it one of their Top 100 Wineries of 2013. We are humbled, grateful, and just super excited to host Jean-Michel Morel, who will pour several traditionally fermented wines as well as his internationally coveted Amfora, which is vinified in enormous Georgian kvevri, or clay amphorae, dug into the ground.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to taste some of the most fascinating wines on the planet, alongside a true master of his craft.
Casual, communal and inexpensive, Tandem Pairings are a great way to learn more about wine from some of the most interesting and charismatic people in the business.
Twenty-seven bucks (about what you'd pay for a couple of drinks at a nice bar) gets you a copious array of fine wines, accompanied by house-made snacks from Rosemont chef Brad Messier to pair splendidly with the beverages. Of course, you'll cap the evening with a coffee or espresso drink made by the experts at Tandem!
