Saturday Tasting: Schueller + Ginglinger
Saturday, June 30, 1-4pm
$10 for five wines (waived with $100 purchase)
Ordinaire wouldn’t be Ordinaire without Percy Selections. Josh is an unrelenting idealist who has always pushed me to think more expansively and more deeply about what natural wine can be and do. If there is something I have learned from both him and the wines that he brings in, it is that we can always be more radical. He’ll be pouring at the shop on Saturday and all of you should go.
Bruno Schueller is a legendary figure in the natural wine world. His wines bridge the gap between classic and avant-garde. I guess “bridge” is the wrong word. Better to say that they dialectically mediate the old and the new. The wines are made in minuscule quantities and demand is outrageous so come early. His cousin, Jean-François Ginglinger, is less well known for the moment, which is just fine by us. The wines are absolutely joyous, just like their maker.
Come by, taste the wines, say hi to Josh, and see why Alsace is the most exciting region in the world for natural wine.
