Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, Feb 1


Your host is Greg Wood of Harry's Staff.
 After graduating from Bryant College, Greg launched his professional career in finance and marketing, including working for the Dutch Steel Company, Hoogovens Steel, as a business development specialist. After working in the corporate world for 10 years, he sought a more passioniate career and spent the next decade as a National Ski Patroller and ski equipment retailer. While Greg was patroling the slopes, his ardor for wine began to flourish. To slake his growing thirst for knowledge, he sought out masses of wine literature and set foot into the great wine regions of the world, traveling most recently to France's Rhone Valley. "It is everything about wine that fascinates me - the history, travel, tasting, and food pairing," says Greg. With his deep knowledge and passionate personality, Greg began working at Harry's in May 2010 and continues to find much joy in selecting the perfect bottle for the customers' needs.

Peter Zemmer Pinot Grigio 2012                 $15.99
Color: radiant straw-yellow with a greenish tone
Bouquet: elegant flowery aroma with typical tones of ripe fruit (pear, melon) and spices
Flavor: fruity mineral flavor, full-bodied with fresh acidity
Winemaker’s Notes

Borgo Scopeto Chianti Classico 2010          $12.99
This is vibrant and energetic, with a base of fine-grained tannins lifting the cherry, currant, rhubarb and tobacco flavors. Taut and almost racy on the long finish. Best from 2015 through 2024.  Wine Spectator, 92 pts, Smart Buy
