Winemaker Open Table with Marco Sara
Monday February 19, 9p-late
Marco is a straight up Friulian farmer dude. He's a third generation wine maker working vineyards that are generally about a hundred years old. He focuses on varietals that have been part of Friulian viticulture for hundreds of years like (Tocai) Friulano, Verduzzo, Refosco, and, wait for it, Cabernet Franc (yeah, that's a thing). He's a serious winemaker in a mud on the boots, on the downlow sort of way. 5 wines, 2 verticals, cabernet franc from eastern italy (it's been there for hundreds of years, seriously) and a sweet passito! Come hang. It's gonna be great.
Scholium Project Wine Dinner with Abe Schoener

A lot of people think of Abe as a sort of warrior poet/mad scientist winemaker. We think of Abe more as a teddy bear winemaker. We are not sure who is right.

We're gonna fete this exciting happening for wine drinking in little Rhody with a 5 courses, lots of wine, yarn spinning, story telling, wine dinner in the best fortnight style featuring Abe himself as MC. Abe has been a good friend of ours for a long time and we're counting on you all to help us show him a special time in RI. We're sure he and his wines will do their part. We're sure you will do. $85 tax and tip included. Seating limited. Email Mike@fortnightpvd.com for tickets.

Two wine makers at one dinner! Fredi Torres of the eponymous Fredi Torres wines of the Priorat and Montsant and of Silice in Galicia and Xurxo Alba of Albamar, also in Galicia. These are two of the most exciting wine makers in Spain right now, making wines of really beauty and character and challenges assumptions about the regions they work in.
