Durham's Revolution restaurant is offering a Gruet wine tasting Monday with four small courses for $40.
I learned about the Gruet winery at the Pinehurst Food and Wine Festival. (My sister and brother-in-law are very sweet and pay for me to go most years to the festival for a sisterly weekend.) The story behind Gruet is this: a French family who own a champagne vineyard and winery in France have children who relocated to New Mexico to produce sparkling wine. If you are a fan of bubbly, it is amazing stuff for a very reasonable prices. I have a couple bottles at home.
Monday's event includes tastings of the Blanc de Blancs Extra Dry NV, Blanc de Noirs NV, Brut Rose NV and Demi-Sec NV. The event is 6:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 8.
