What better way to kick off the celebration of this year’s Earth Day than toasting it with a number of excellent “green” wines! Gather up some friends this Saturday, April 18, and head to Screwtop Wine Bar and Cheese Shop in Arlington (Clarendon) to participate in this month’s feature wine class “Going Green,” where you’ll get to learn more and understand the differences between organic, sustainable and biodynamic wines. Wine Educator and certified Wine PhD Amanda Page will be teaching the sit-down class from 12:30-2 p.m. The price is $49.99 per person. The wine tasting will also come with a selection of organic cheeses.
There are currently six wines on the lineup for this Saturday’s tasting—three whites and three reds. The first of the whites is a brut, Tripoz Crémant de Bourgogne, from the Burgundy region of France, followed by a muscadet from Domaine de L’Ecu Orthogenesis, from the Loire Valley, also in France, and finally a rosé by Elk Cove from the Willamette Valley in Oregon, USA. The red line up includes a Rouet Chinon from the Loire Valley in France, followed by Fox Creek Shiraz hailed from McLaren Vale in Australia, and concluded with a Siesta Malbec from the Mendoza region of Argentina.
Screwtop Wine Bar and Cheese Shop is located on 1025 N. Filmore Street, Arlington, VA. They are open seven days a week and serve both lunch and dinner except on Mondays. They also have a brunch menu available during the weekend.
