Launch party with the infamous Bubble Man of Catalunya!
A discussion with Pipette’s editor along with Venice and Paris sommeliers and natural wine experts.
Our friends at Pineapple Collective NY have invited Pipette to join a panel discussion (and tasting of wine and food, of course!) all about natural wine, covering a range of issues, including: what is it, and why should we care about it?
Held on Nov 29th from 7-9pm, this will be a really dynamic and memorable discussion featuring multiple perspectives, in the wonderful, intimate space at the Green Grape Annex in Brooklyn. Tickets via Eventbrite.
Years ago, in the mezcal fields of Oaxaca, our editor Rachel met Lane Harlan of Baltimore’s Bar Clavel and other outposts. It was only fate that Lane would now open a natural wine bar and Pipette could be there to inaugurate it with a one-night-only bar takeover.
We’re planning a fun evening with plenty of delicious wines (including the very limited Persephone Wines that Rachel makes in Australia), freshly shucked oysters and grilled seafood by a special guest chef, and magazines on sale.
Tues, Nov 27, 7-11pm at Fadensonnen, 3 W 23rd Street. No entry fee.
At Dio Wine Bar, Washington DC.
Sunday, Nov 25,
Come hang with our editor Rachel at Dio Wine Bar! From 4:30-6pm, Dio hosts Pipette Magazine for a tasting and discussion about gender in the world of wine. We'll taste 4 wines from around the world made by women and use them as catalysts to talk about how gender makes a difference, both in writing about wine, and making it. The tasting will be followed by an open Q&A.
Eventbrite link here to get tickets! Magazines will be on sale, as well.
Join us at Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virginia for a free wine tasting hosted by our editor, Rachel, from 3-6pm on Saturday the 24th of November.
Crystal City Wine Shop has been a supporter of this magazine since the beginning and we’re thrilled to be spending the afternoon there. Come to try the wines, have a chat, and purchase a magazine.
