Natural Wine Event

Astor is one of my favorite wine stores in part becasue they were way ahead of the curve when it came to supporting organic and biodynamic wine makers. They have a small organic section, but through out the store everything is coded so you know what is what (my other favorite wine store September also does this).

This Saturday they are holding their 6th annual natural wine tasting where you get a chance for $ 15to mingle with the wine makers and taste a bunch of fine wine made in the traditional methods.

More on this event from Astor's web site:

It’s time for our Sixth Annual Natural Wine Event! Mingle with the winemakers while you taste their amazing wines.

On Saturday, March 6th, for just $15, you can try over 20 wines in a casual, fun setting. Talk to the winemakers about these natural, organic, and biodynamic bottlings, which have become wildly popular among those who prefer pure food and wine.

Throughout the afternoon we will also hold short seminars with three engaging speakers: winemaker Tony Coturri from Sonoma, California; winemaker Alain Rochard from Minervois, France; and Andy Fisher, President of Astor Wines & Spirits and Astor Center. So, aside from being a nice break from your Saturday shopping, this event will even teach you a thing or two!

Natural winemakers strive to grow perfect grapes, and they make honest wines in every vintage without manipulation. Taste their phenomenal creations and talk with these passionate artisans about their craft, and you’ll immediately understand why they work so hard.
