Wine Bar Takeover with Mike Guinard from Village Imports
December 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for a Wine Bar Takeover with Mike Guinard from Village Imports as he guides us through a vertical of Rubinelli Vajol Valpolicella Ripasso. Choose the flight offering, which will include three vintages: 2013, 2014, and 2015, or select glass pours of your favorites. Amarone by the glass will also be available for guests to enjoy.
Most wine drinkers know Valpolicella as a light-bodied red from the Veneto in Italy. But there’s much more going on for Valpolicella Ripasso: to add more substance and depth to the wine, winemakers utilize a traditional winemaking method called ripasso or “re-pass”. This process involves pouring the freshly-made Valpolicella over the grape must from Amarone, the region’s most structured and dense red wine. From here, a second fermentation is initiated and the light Valpolicella absorbs some of the Amarone’s character.
