My tastes in wine have slowly graduated from box to bottle since I finished my undergraduate studies a few years ago. I'm inching my way through all the white wine varieties, and I still haven't developed a taste for red.
But upcoming events at Bristol Bar and Grille and Limestone Restaurant sound great for the more mature wine lover.
Bristol's dinner on Sept. 16 at the restaurant's Main Street location will feature Andreas Wickhoff of Loimer Winery in a celebration of Austrian wine and cuisine. I counted at least five Austrian wines that will be featured at the $55 a plate dinner. Call (502) 582-1995 for reservations.
Limestone Restaurant will showcase Storybook Mountain Vineyards, winner of Wine & Spirits Magazine "Artisan Winery of the Year," during a four-course, $69 dinner Sept. 21. Each course will be paired with one of Storybook Mountain's organic, award-winning wines. Call (502) 426-7477 for information.
