Virtual Wine Tasting


Don't forget to have a seperate glass for each wine you pour!

Join AIWF for a Virtual Tasting of 3 wines curated by Sommelier and AIWF Board Member Nelson Escalante at 6:00 pm, Tuesday, May 12 on Zoom!

Here's how it works!  You sign up like you would for a regular event through our website and we will register you for the event and charge a slight $5 processing fee (per household) to help offset our monthly costs.  At that time, you will be emailed the Zoom code.  You can then call Auburn Spirits (see details below) and order the wines for pick-up prior to the event no later than Monday, May 11.

At 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 12, log onto the Zoom meeting and have your wine open and ready to pour.  Nelson will lead us through the tasting offering tips for tasting, suggestions and pairings.

Nelson, a Level 2 Certified Sommelier, who will be testing for the Certified Specialist of Wine this fall, has a long history in Wichita's food and beverage industry.  From his time in restaurants to working as a bartender at Chester's Chophouse, the Head Bartender at Newport Grill and the Restaurant Manager and Wine Director at Siena Tuscan Steakhouse he logged more than 22 years in F&B before becoming a Wine & Spirits Rep for LDF Sales and Distributing.  And now he's sharing his love of wine with AIWF!

2018 Olivares Rosado, Jumilla, Spain  -  90pts Vinous Winemaker notes:  Floral and red fruits are found on the nose and in the mouth.  It is fruity, fresh and balanced.  Pair with appetizers, grilled vegetables, fish soups, pasta and salads.  AIWF Event Price - $7.99

2017 Nieto Senetiner 'Don Nicanor' Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina  -  93pts Tim Atkin.  Intense wine with well-defined profile, deep red hue with remarkable shades of purple and blue.  Tim Atkins says: Split 50/50 between the Uco Valley and Agrelo this textbook Mendoza Malbec is wonderfully aromatic and harmonious, with some white pepper notes, savory tannins and caressing filigree tannins.  Lovely Winemaking!  Pair with grilled or roasted red meat, semi-cured cheeses and spicy pasta.  AIWF Event Price - $14.99
