07 Sep Serres Rioja Tasting Sun. 9/10
Sunday, September 10
1 to4 pm
At the Bar
As the Art Fair draws to a close, join us to taste two stellar Riojas from Carlos Serres! Serres was a pioneer in Rioja, establishing one of the now-famous region’s first wineries in 1896. This is an area known for extended bottle aging, which is why these current releases are from so many vintages ago. These gems offer incredible value at modest prices.
