For the past few months, I have been helping out a local restaurant, Fare, with their wine program, and last month, we hosted the first wine dinner, which focused on the by-the-glass wine offerings at the restaurant.The event was well received, so we decided to make it into a monthly (at least for now) occurrence. The next such event is this coming Tuesday (March 3rd) where the focus will be on Rhône varieties (Viognier, Marsanne, and Roussanne for the whites, and Syrah, Petite Sirah, and Grenache primarily for the reds). While these grapes grew to prominence in the Rhône Valley in France, they are now being grown all over the world and as such, the wines I’ve selected come from Chile, the U.S., Spain, and of course, France.So if you are in or near Philadelphia this Tuesday, you should come by for the dinner!
