Webster’s has long had a reputation for a comprehensive, global wine list that appeals to both novice and connoisseur alike. I wanted to continue this tradition with a wine program that is informed by a desire to share wines that show a strong sense of their place of origin. Authentic wines made with minimal intervention that are capable of conjuring joy and stimulating conversation. I want to remove the stuffiness often associated with wine and let guests revel in pure fermented grape juice.

Valentine’s Weekend Parisian Prix Fixe

3 DAYS, 3 COURSES, ALL LOVE

Our inspiration for Valentine’s Day this year comes from one of our favorite cities in the world and perhaps the most romantic, Paris. Let us transport you to a small bistrot in the 11 arrondissement. On Friday February 12, Saturday February 13, and Sunday February 14, we will be offering a special 3 course menu of some of our favorite French classics. There will also be optional wine pairings from our Sommelier Carl Moberg.  Seatings are limited, so please plan ahead.

For reservations, please email info@websterwinebar.com, see menu below […]

‘Natural’ Wine Tasting – February 20th

The term “natural wine” is controversial in its own right, implying that wines that don’t fall in this category are somehow unnatural. Perhaps a better term would be minimal intervention wines, but that’s a bit clunky. Even if we set aside the terminology, these wines, which are painstakingly made in a manner that eschews adding or taking anything away from the grapes to create the final product, are at the center of a rift in the wine world. Many see wines made with this philosophy as rife with flaws and even an affront to what modern wine making has achieved. Others view these wines as a truer representation of the hard work done in the vineyard and a more authentic representation of the grapes and terroir, (the ubiquitous wine term that signifies a sense of place). Webster’s has long supported these wines and we hope to shine a light on them in this comprehensive tasting. Come explore the wines of this growing phenomenon in the wine world. We will open more than twenty wines ranging from pet-nats and skin-contact whites to unfiltered, unsulfured reds. As always, price of entry includes hors d’oeuvres.

Feb 20, 2016 3:00p.m.-5:00p.m

Ides of March Tasting: Heavy Hitters of Tuscany – March 19th

In remembrance of the day that Julius Caesar’s blood was shed as he was betrayed and assassinated, we will open up some of the more notable wines of Italy and in true Roman style drink to the goddess Anna Perrena (goddess of long life and renewal, health and plenty) for as many more years of life as glasses of wine we can drink (put on your drinking pants). For many, their first taste of Italian wine was a Chianti in a straw basket that was quickly converted to a candleholder.  From Chianti Classico and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano to Brunello di Montelcino, Sangiovese is king here. We’ll explore the many different clones and expressions of this noble grape. There will be around 20 wines, largely Sangiovese, with a few treats thrown in for good measure. As always, price of entry includes hors d’oeuvres.

Saturday March 19th 3-5 pm

$50 Tickets available at Ticketleap
