Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of February it gets pretty darn cold almost everywhere in the continental US except Florida and California. With that said, we are taking our conversations to warmer seas around the globe and pouring our favorite island wines. Yes these are made from grapes grown on an island and yes we would much rather be there than battling ice storms and sketchy winter weather in Nashville. But the wines we are featuring are faced with their fair share of challenges, being grown on volcanic soils, steep cliffs and blustery winds. The results? Pure magic. Come enjoy a few glasses and attempt to get transported.”
This week featuring: Frontón de Oro, Gran Canaria 2015
The Canary Islands are technically part of Spain, yet sit 100 miles off the coast of Morocco. A string of volcanoes, including the third tallest in the world, assist in creating nutrient rich soils and cozy homes for vineyards where Frontón de Oro makes camp. Their plantings of Listan Negro thrive under the brutal island sun, yet produce a fresh expression in the glass that can dance with the meat of the mountains or swim with the fish of the sea. At $8 a glass, you will see that where there’s smoke, there’s fire.
