Sip-to-Give Tasting: Domaine Leon Boesch

So what is Sip-to-Give?

Every Friday (at Pairings Portland Wine Shop) there's a 5 wine tasting flight ($15) from 1 winery or producer. There's snacks available for an additional fee. You're also welcome to bring some food with you!

The weekly tastings start at 5 & go till at least 8 pm. 

Each month there's a non-profit partner and 5% of the proceeds from these Friday tastings, plus 5% of all shop sales (from 5 pm-close) go to the non-profit partner of the Month.

For April the non-profit partner is the KERNS NEIGHBORHOOD ASSOCIATION

Kerns is an up & coming area that can use some support with projects geared to bringing to life this changing neighborhood. Pairings is excited to part of it & loves having the opportunity to help. 

The tasting for Friday April 11th features Domaine Leon Boesch from Alsace

When I first tasted these wines, the focus & purity, combined with excellent extraction made these wines stand out. In addition they were over-delivering at their retail prices. A Grand Cru Riesling & Gewurztraminer are in the lineup that retail for $35/bottle (stupid low for their quality).

We'll have some Olympic Provisions sausages as a fun pairing element available.

The weather for next weekend includes approaching 70 so getting a little white wine excitement in the air is part of the plan!!

Cheers to all & Happy Spring!
