Complimentary Wine Tasting Tonight!

Stop by the Goose's Enoteca tonight, Wednesday, Nov. 3, from 5-7pm, when the rep from Daedalus Cellar Company will be making complimentary pours of a white wine that's ideal for fall and so limited in production that only 232 cases exist.

Just a handful of American producers are bottling gruner veltliner, an Austrian grape that yields a dry white wine with zip and spice. Oregon's Daedalus Cellar Company--named for Icarus' Greek dad who invented the wax wings they used to escape their labrynth prison--produces an extremely limited amount from just a half acre of the gruner vines.

The fruit of this little vineyard makes for a bottle that's intense and full. Autumn herbs and spice like thyme, sage, and black peppercorns are lush alongside the kind of tart fruits that could decorate a turkey--kumquats, cranberries, and lemons. Daedalus' Gruner is a versatile food wine that's suited to the fall foods returning to our tables.

Stop by to try this rare juice and sample the snacks from the cheese & charcuterie case that we've paired with it. See you in the Enoteca tonight!
