Steven Brown, representing Lyrarakis Winery of Crete will be here to help us create a raucous family style dinner! Expect a long banquet table lined with butcher paper where all the food will be placed directly on the table - Bread, cheese, meat, fruit, veggies, etc, ready for a proper feast as a big family style dining experience perfectly complementing the these wines of Crete.
This week we serve up wines from Lyrarakis Winery, a family-owned winery focused on heritage varieties. Like Txikiteo, Lyrarakis (try saying those two words together five times fast) champions the local, the offbeat, the rare individual focused on a single brilliant gesture. In the case of the Lyrarakis, that gesture has been saving ancient, native white varieties from extinction.
Some of these wines will be featured at a Greek-family-style dinner on Tuesday (including the only case of rose from this winery coming into Idaho). The distributor will be on hand to discuss the wines of this distinct region of the world. This is a wine-lover's opportunity to taste wines made from varieties that were close to disappearing, as well as Lyrarakis' creative blending of well-known local and foreign varieties.
Come celebrate the preserving of old traditions, and maybe create some new ones. Opa!
Steven Brown of Lyrarakis Wines, Txikiteo Boise Beverage Co-ordinator Stuart Mitton, and Erin Davis from Cru Selections will be around discussing the wines and answering any questions you may have about these inspired wines!
