I better watch out… soon my friends are going to ditch my Wine Wednesdays and attend Pierre Yves Robin’s instead! Pierre Yves and I can compete on a few things. We’re both French for one and we both love wine. But he’s a sommelier and just introduced a new fun Wine Wednesday happy Hour: Taste of Embassy Row in the Fairfax Room of The Jockey Club at the Fairfax at Embassy Row near Dupont Circle.
Each Wednesday from 5:30pm-6:30pm Pierre Yves selects four to six wines from a particular region and Chef McCreadie creates small plates that complement the wines and give you a taste of the region’s cuisine. All this for just $25… my friends are never coming back to my place for Wine Wednesday!
For the month of August, Taste of Embassy Row will highlight the following wines and regions:
July 29-Veneto and Trentino (Italy)
August 5-Piedmont and Lombardy Wines (Italy)
August 12-Wines of Chile
August 19-Wines of Argentina
August 26-Catalonia Wines (Spain)
