We are super super excited to host Jair Tellez, chef of the incomparable Laja Restaurant in Ensenada, Mexico, and now the guy behind the equally incomparable Bichi Winery in Tecate. A few years ago, he left his post as chef at a Top 50 San Pellegrino Restaurant in order to devote his life to resurrecting the old vines of Baja. And better yet, he’s committed to working naturally: organic farming, native yeasts, and as of this vintage, no so2 whatsoever. THESE ARE MEXICAN WINES FROM THE FUTURE. COME TASTE THE FUTURE!
Also, last minute, our good friend Louis-Antonie Luyt decided to fly up from Patagonia. Luyt is good buddies with Jair and helps out with the winemaking at Bichi. He also makes his own wines down in Chile. They are, simply put, the best wines made in South America. Also, Luyt likes to party. So put some hot sauce in your bag and wear your party shoes.
So we are pouring 4-5 Bichi wines and 3 Luyt wines and the cost is $15 for all the wines. 1-4pm.
