May 26, 2023 | highlighting lesser-known varieties

An important holiday designed to honor those who lost their lives in military service, Memorial Day has also come to mean a long weekend of sunshine, outdoor hangs and all around good vibes to commemorate the 'unofficial' start of summer.   

At today's tasting (Friday, 5.26!), we're leaning into the latter interpretation while riffing on the actual definition:

We're pouring three wines made from lesser-known grapes that deserve a little more appreciation and also happen to be perfect for warm weather drinking. 

(Convoluted? Maybe. Delicious? Definitely.)
