Wine Events at bacar

bacar has a couple groovy wine events on the calendar. First, renowned German winemaker ~DR. ERNST LOOSEN~ will be pouring and discussing his wines for a five-course dinner this Wednesday, March 5. Guests will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Loosen and taste 11 of his beloved wines, including his 2006 Villa Wolf Grauburgunder, and 2006 Dr. Loosen Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese and 2007 Dr. Loosen & J. Christoper "Two Worlds" Pinot Noir, over a dinner prepared by executive chef Robbie Lewis, with dishes such as local petrale sole with bacon-braised Savoy cabbage; Liberty Farms duck breast with medjool date puree and glazed turnips; and Berkshire pork tenderloin with porcini mushrooms, salsify, and creamed nettles.

The Dr. Loosen estate has been in the same family for more than 200 years. Once Ernst Loosen assumed ownership in 1988, he realized that with un-grafted vines averaging 60 years old in some of Germany's best-rated vineyards, he had the raw materials to create stunningly intense, world-class wines. His approach to winemaking combines contemporary technique with a respect for tradition. This has earned the estate an overwhelmingly positive response from wine writers and wine lovers the world over. Most recently, Wine & Spirits awarded him "Best German Producer" and "Best Producers of the Past 25 Years" in 2007.

And then, coming up is another ~SOMMELIER SUPPER~ (held the 3rd Sunday of every month). Wine director Mickey Clevenger continues bacar's monthly tradition by offering an intimate evening of food and wine. Capture an inside look into what it takes to make it on bacar's wine list. Guests will have the opportunity to preview and sample approximately two dozen wines not yet on the list in bacar below, and then enjoy a family-style dinner.
