William Cross Wine Merchant

Another Wednesday boozy higher education option is at the friendly ~WILLIAM CROSS WINE MERCHANT~ on upper Polk Street. Every Wednesday evening, from 6pm-9pm, Steve Sherman enthusiastically leads a group of winos on a tasting through a country, a region, a style, or a single winery. I happily checked it out on an evening when he was showcasing wines he discovered during his most recent trip to Italy, mamma mia.

The tastings hover around $15, and I recommend you get there at 6pm sharp if you want to snag a seat at the bar, otherwise you get to mill around with fellow wine drinkers on your feet. The tastings last until 9pm or so. Then you can wobble down the street for a bite to eat at Tablespoon, or the new Nicky's Pizzeria. There's also Yabbie's right next door.

Coming up: this Wednesday, April 12, is Spanish wines; Wednesday, April 19, is Oregon wines.
