First, SOHO will pour a 2007 Domaine Mongeard-Mugneret Bourgogne Rouge from Burgundy, France. The Mongeard-Mugenert family has been producing wine in Burgundy since the 18th century. Knowing the land well allows the family to produce exceptional Pinot Noir according to SOHO’s wine expert Lars Snavely.


Next, SOHO will pour a 2008 Erath Pinot Noir from Oregon. Erath winery’s founder, Dick Erath, an engineer turned viticulturist, was one of four pioneers of the modern winemaking era in Oregon. His winery, now owned by Chateau St. Michelle Estates, continues to produce wonderful Pinots. The 2008 Erath Pinot Noir features flavors of cherry pie, red currant and vanilla coffee.


Finally, SOHO will pour a 2009 Escarpment Over the Edge Pinot Noir from Martinborough, New Zealand. This vintage was harvested early due to a very warm growing season and the resulting wine features ripe cherry and plum flavors.


Chef Joe has created three new tapas plates to pair with each Pinot Noir. The following will be available until Wednesday, June 30.
