Blind Tasting (Now every First Friday!) – Friday May 4th, 6-9pm

First Friday May 4th, 6-9pm we are tasting Blind. Blind means the wines will be brown-bagged so you don’t know what you’re tasting until after. I ask that you be here for a 6:10pm, 7:10pm or 8:10pm start time as we will taste and reveal the wines in groups. This tasting is $15 per person at the door. No tickets necessary. Brooklyn South cheese and meat boards are available too for $10. Winesmith always serves wine by-the-glass, even during tastings. Cheers!

Friday May 18th in the 6-9pm window we are tasting Natural Wines: a delicious, slightly fizzy Chilean Moscatel blend (dry), a savory, rustic Rhone Grenache/Syrah blend, a crowd-pleasing, dry, effervescent Italian Lambrusco, it’s sister Malvasia, an Abillo Real Spanish Orange wine (not made from oranges 😜) and a slightly tart, meaty Spanish Monastrell.
