WINE TASTING: Sancerre and Sancerre Rosé

Friday, June 1, 4-7pm
4855 Mass Ave. NW (Delicatessen)



Our white Sancerre Moulin des Vrillères is a blend of our different parcels of Sauvignon. It expresses clearly its aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits, and lingers long on the palate. The dominant fresh mouth does not betray its terroir. One can open it as an aperitif and finish it with fresh or mature goat's cheese.


This is a winemade from Pinot Noir by the saignée method. The juice is separated from the skins once th colour is right. It its salmon colour first attracts you, it is the bouquet taht holds your attention with the elegance and complexity of its perfume of ripe fruits. A bottle that can be opened in confidence and tried young.

Smithfield Ham

The flavor of southern hospitality. America's original artisan ham can only be cured within the Smithfield town limits (as decreed by law)! And the traditional handcrafting process has never changed – resulting in a superior lean ham, rich in color and robust in flavor. 

Copper & King American Brandy

Dogfish Pennsylvania Tuxedo

A spruce-infused pale ale, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA.

Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.

A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.



Gaffel Kölsch

The classic Gaffel Koelsch is a particularly fresh speciality beer from Cologne, brewed according to a time-honoured family recipe and the German Purity Law of 1516 with water, malt, hops, and hops extract.

The delicately bitter, pleasant, slightly hopsy taste is characteristic for this traditional product and clearly distinguishes Gaffel Koelsch from all other Koelsch brands.


Single Vineyard Reserva Vina Lanciano Rioja

Deep brilliant black cherry-red color. Intense aromas of black and red fruits with balsamic and spicy notes. Tasty, wide and very harmonic.

Morbier Cheese

Morbier is a semi-soft cows' milk cheese of France named after the small village of Morbier in Franche-Comté. It is ivory colored, soft and slightly elastic, and is immediately recognizable by the thin black layer separating it horizontally in the middle. It has a rind that is yellowish, moist, and leathery.

Traditionally, the cheese consists of a layer of morning milk and a layer of evening milk. When making Comté (cheese), cheesemakers would end the day with leftover curd that was not enough for an entire cheese. Thus, they would press the remaining evening curd into a mold, and spread ash over it to protect it overnight. The following morning, the cheese would be topped up with morning milk. The aroma of Morbier is strong, but the flavor is rich and creamy, with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
