Zoom Speaker Series: Jerry Mitchell – Wine & Wine Books

May 21, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Join us as Jerry Mitchell, CLS Board President, presents a lecture perfect for an at home happy hour! A book collector for more than half a century, Jerry will explain how wine books have come to form a genre that almost defies cataloging, ranging from the useful tasting notes of a professional and the biographical confessions of a winemaker to the claims of a physician that the beverage cures all known ills. He shares stories about how wine is discussed in plays, in poetry, in cookbooks, and in history. He will describe how he came to collect wine books and will read from some of his favorite wine writers. An RSVP is required for this event. To RSVP, click here.

If you’re looking for “Wine pairings” to imbibe during this “Happy Hour” program, look no further! And we suggest you support some of our favorite local shops, both supplying curbside pick-up —  Bin 152 or Graft Wine Shop.

 An off-dry Riesling is the perfect pairing for anyone bitter for a day at the beach, but has been settling for their backyard…

– A floral, fruity rosé can surprise you when pairing with some of your favorite take-away Italian pasta or pizza…

-A Pinot Noir can pair with a lot. So, if you’re avoiding a trek to the grocery by opting for cleaning out your pantry of outdated, never consumed items, go with this malleable red.Mitchell
