Wine Tasting

Editors’ Pick

Wine tastings can sometimes be just an excuse to drink. Chuck Furuya’s tastings at Vino Italian Tapas & Wine Bar, however, are focused and educational, as he shares insights gained over 21 years as a master sommelier. In addition to his regular tastings, he also conducts themed BYOYOB tastings, in which each attendee brings in a different example of a specific type of wine. “I set out three benchmark examples and wrap the others and we taste them blind,” says Furuya. The BYOYOBs are scheduled on a somewhat spontaneous basis, and Furuya accepts only the first 15 to respond to an e-mail sent out to Vino’s mailing list. Call the restaurant to sign up.
