Have you ever wondered where we find all the lovely wines we sell? By near-daily tasting, with about 27 different suppliers. The best of these-passionate, knowledgeable, and unfailingly fun-we no longer think of as 'salespeople', but as dear friends. And even among this rarefied group, there's nobody else quite like George.
George Schwartz is Mr Italy. Every time he walks through the door, we know we'll be trying something amazing: a Nebbiolo from the Roero, a new Primitivo producer, a snappy-crisp, just-bottled Grechetto. When George shows up, you'll be heading off on a delicious flight of fancy, lucky to have been invited along. I've often wished that our customers could experience tasting with George and hearing his stories first-hand.
And now, you can!
This Sunday, September 25, George will be at Pour Richard's with 24 of his 'Greatest Hits', wonderful wines he has sourced from the Veneto to Sicily, Tuscany to Piemonte, and back again. And our customers get to play Wine Buyer for the day, tasting with the Maestro and deciding what they love and what they merely like.
We'll have Barolo. Barbaresco. Fizzy fun white from the Veneto. Barbera. Pinot Grigio. Tuscan Red. Arneis. Dessert wine. And much, much more.
The MA distributor for George's wines also owns Ristorante La Campania in Waltham. In proper Italian fashion, they'll be providing cheeses and other snacks to complement the wines. If you've dined at Campania, you understand what a treat that will be. If you haven't, trust us: it's fabulous!
To sweeten the deal even more, we're offering an additional 15% off 6 or more wines from the tasting, and 20% off 12 or more.
An afternoon with George. September 25, 1-4 PM. Don't miss it.
