Slate Wine Bar + Bistro to Host Sommelier Wine Tasting

From our friends at Slate Wine Bar + Bistro...

Slate Wine Bar + Bistro to Host Sommelier Wine Tasting: Bordeaux Edition with Special Guest from Elite Wines

According to, 57% of wine drinkers are considered “core” drinkers, meaning they drink wine on a fairly consistent weekly or monthly basis - a 23% increase from the 1993 survey, where only 34% of all wine drinkers were “core drinkers.” We Americans love our wine and the many different variations offered: red, white, rose and sparkling. On September 25th, 2014, Danny Lledo, manager of Slate Wine Bar + Bistro, is hosting a Thursday Night Sommelier Wine Tasting: Bordeaux Edition from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with special guest sommelier Marc Aisenstark from Elite Wines.

“There are hundreds and hundreds of different wines out there from all regions of the world and we decided to focus this particular wine tasting on just one category: bordeaux,” affirms Lledo. “The wine tasting will be hosted by special guest sommelier Marc Aistenstark from Elite Wines to give his expert opinion on the various bottles.”

On Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM, anyone and everyone is invited to Slate Wine Bar + Bistro at 2404 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20007. The four choice wines below will be available at a special price of $25, plus an additional featured wine!
