Domaine Alzipratu, Corsica
June 25, 2021
For the inaugural evening of the season, we will be transported to Calvi, Corsica the medieval city known for its impressive citadel. Vermentino, the island’s emblematic varietal for white wines, will be our main act. But the red wines of the high Balagne — Niellucco, Alaeaticu, Minustell and Sciacarello — will also make a sultry appearance.
Domaine Charles et Amélie Sparr, Wettolsheim
July 23, 2021
These beloved Alsatian bottles make their return to the Château for our July meeting. Amélie and Charles Sparr adhere to the rules biodynamic farming and an ultra-demanding winemaking process to create beautifully sapid and precise whites. Their wines are assertive in character and the subtlety of the Pinot Noir reminds us that the rolling hills of Burgundy are only a few miles down the road.
