|Eleventh 2017 Ann Arbor Tasters Guild Event
BEST OF THE SHOWS
Wine Merchant Dinner
with Dick Scheer, Owner, Village Corner
TUESDAY, November 14, 7:00 pm/b>
|at Grange Kitchen, 118 S. Main, Ann Arbor|
Autumn is Trade Show season. Michigan wine distributors call in their winery and importer reps to man tables at massive exhibitions directed at retail and restaurant wine buyers. There are literally hundreds of wines and spirits available for tasting at some of these shows.
I feel an obligation to attend as many as possible and to sample as many products of interest as time allows. With my speedy, aroma-enhancing Taster glass, recorder, and spit-each-sample regimen, I‛m pretty efficient at it, accumulating hundreds of evaluations before the season ends.
‛m calling my own number this month, sending seven of my favorite trade-show wines to Chef-Proprietor Brandon Johns and kitchen for the purpose of menu conception. The choices are based on value, uniqueness, and quality relative to type. I‛m including my tasting notes with the wine list, and, of course, I‛ll be the evening‛s speaker in order to fill in the details. Brandon‛s menu will follow by email when available.
