Michael Mohammadi, Sotto Sopra’s Wine Director, is very excited about this tasting. The theme is simple, you will taste wines from different regions around the world that come from non-typical grape varieties for that region. The idea here is to learn what a "typical" wine from that region tastes like and how it is performing in its new home.

You will taste 8 wines and the tasting will last approximately 1 hour. Michael is looking forward to seeing all the regulars and hopefully many new faces! The cost of the tasting is only $25!

Please make reservations for your attendance so we can plan accordingly. Call 410 625 0534 and let them know you are coming for the wine tasting. Thank you.
