Hip Tastes

Another non-traditional wino event is coming up from the charming Courtney Cochran of ~HIP TASTES~—this time she's getting all fiesta on us, and pairing wines with bites from Pancho Villa. Considering my pal and I polished off a bottle of Veuve with a couple burritos from Papalote a couple weeks back, I'd say this is a fellow woman who understands the powerful concept of hi-lo. This Friday fellow tasters will be trying:

Chips and Guac with Cantosan Rueda, Annie's Lane Riesling
Pollo Tacos with Michael David Incognito Viognier
Burrito Bites with Marques de Riscal Crianza Rioja
Carne Asada Tacos with Rosemount Diamond Shiraz, Burrell School Vineyards Cabernet Franc

I have also heard rumors of a piñata, a DJ, and Three Amigos being projected. (No, this is not the start of a joke… there's no lady with a poodle).

More on Hip Tastes: Hip Tastes wine tastings are stylish events for adventurous enthusiasts looking to broaden their knowledge of the good stuff. Join other hipsters in search for the real meaning of terroir and other vinous curiosities. No paisley tie-wearing wine auction-attending dilettantes here. Just real people getting to know real wine, one great party at a time. Bottoms up!

Members of the Hip Tastes Wine Club attend for just $10. (Club members, send an email to info@hiptastes.com to RSVP.)
