Mick Craven at Racines NY Saturday 23th of June, from 7pm on!

This Saturday starting 7pm the team at Racines NY will welcome a last minute surprise guest, Mick Craven! Mick, an Aussie landed in South Africa for love and for vine is today crafting with his wife Janine some of the most exciting and highly drinkable wines from Stellenbosch. This region (aka "The City of Oaks", just east of Cape Town, and probably the most famous of SA), is finding a new voice thanks to attentive and careful farming of the "original" varietals that were brought to the country centuries ago (Clairette, Chenin, Cinsault) as well as more subtle interpretations of Syrah and Pinots. With some time spent with Pax Mahle and Scott Schultz, you can bet Mick got a taste for elegant, fresh and savory wines vinified with a light hand in the cellar over extracted fruit bombs, as well as a touch for some layered skin-contact and stem-inclusion variations. 

Come and join us to chat with one of the top talents of SA, and taste what the Polkadraai Hills can offer! No reservation needed, just come at the bar! #realwine #vindevigneron #vindevigneronne #clairette #pinotgris #syrah #pinotnoir #chenincheninchenin #stellenbosch

Taste L'Anglore and Balazu des Vaussières, the Natural Giants of Tavel, at Racines This Tuesday, 6pm!

Please join us this Tuesday, June 19th at 6pm as we taste six beautiful natural wines from Tavel - from Eric Pfifferling's Domaine L'Anglore and from Nadia and Christian Charmasson's Balazu des Vaussières! We apologize for the late notice, but this will be a fascinating and delicious tasting that is not to be missed. Obviously, quantities are limited...

Coming up...On Tuesday June 26th celebrate Alsace Week as Eben Lillie is back behing the bar at Racines pouring his favorite natural wines! We'll taste superb Alsacian wines from Pierre Frick, Ginglinger, Beck Hartweg and more...

We'll taste Lirac, Tavel and Sel d'Argent from l'Anglore and Dent de Lion, Sept Syllabes and Vin Libre from Balazu des Vaussières

Since 2002, Eric Pfifferling at Domaine L'Anglore has been creating some of the most exciting wines of the southern Rhone. With organic farming methods and superb vinifications, Pfifferling creates wines that have a unique purity, silky texture and fabulous expression of both fruit and terroir. Since 1993, Christian and Nadia Charmasson at Balazu des Vaussières have been making beatiful natural wines with farming that is beyond biodynamic, without copper-sulfate in the vines, and with vinifications with zero additives and zero added sulfur. The wines age in vat for two to three years before bottling. Inexplicably, these wines have never been available in the US.
 

Please join us Tuesday at 6pm for this extraordinary tasting!
