Black Ankle Vineyards is having a lot going on over the next month. Winemaker for a day on October 24th, a Sunday evening pasta & wine dinner on November 15 and most intruiging to me: “Leafstone vs. The World” on November 8th. From their website:
We have asked 7 of the best wine merchants in Maryland to recommend Syrahs that are comparably priced to our 2007 Leaf-Stone Syrah. Black Ankle’s Ed Boyce will lead a blind tasting of eight wines, including the Leaf-Stone. The tasting will be accompanied by discussion of strenghts, weaknesses and interesting points of each wine. Once the identies of the wines are revealed, we will look at when, how and where they were made and how their cultivation has affected the finished wines. This is definitely a five star day for the serious (or aspiring) wine geeks out there!
$75 a head seems a little dear to me , but I’d love to go anyway except I think I’m going to be out of town that weekend. Darn
Also saw that Moxie Cafe and Bakery on North Market Street has opened. I’ll have to stop by and let you know what I think. Sigh- my to do list gets longer by the day!
