We're Heading Down Under in The Tasting Room @ The Local!
If you’re always eager to try new wines & are curious to learn about how wine is produced Down Under (and all over), then this educational tasting evening is for you! The night will feature five delicious Australian wines, and, of course, some light refreshments. Oh, shoot, I buried the lede: all this is hosted by a Master Sommelier – Jane Lopes! She’s psyched to be visiting our neck of the woods & can’t wait to share her wines, knowledge, and stories of her time working in the wine industry with you all! So please join us Friday, June 23rd at 6:30pm for a deep dive into Australian wines!
What’s a Master Sommelier? Folks who earn this title are the world’s foremost experts on wine. It’s a pretty selective group - there are currently only 273 & only 25 women Master Sommeliers in the United States. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be able to host someone of Jane’s caliber in The Tasting Room!
Jane Lopes has enjoyed an amazing career in the wine industry. She’s worked at New York's Eleven Madison Park, Nashville's The Catbird Seat, Chicago's The Violet Hour, and, most recently, as the wine director at Attica, one of Australia's most celebrated restaurants. Jane was featured on Esquire network's 2015 television series Uncorked, which follows six New York City sommeliers in pursuit of the Master Sommelier title (which Jane attained in 2018). In September of 2019, she published her first book, a personal & educational guide to wine called Vignette: Stories of Life and Wine in 100 Bottles. And in 2020, Jane & her husband Jonathan Ross co-founded their own Australian wine imports company: Legend.
