Drink Alsace Online Seminar & Tasting


Binny’s is excited to celebrate the Wines of Alsace this month. We first told you about it in this post on the Binny’s Blog. Now we have more details about the online interactive tasting hosted by Chicago’s very own wine educator Patrick Fegan. Here’s the snapshot.


Drink Alsace – Wines of Pure Expression
Interactive Seminar with Patrick Fegan
June 28th, 2012
4-6pm: Open Forum Discussion
6-7pm: Interactive Webcam Tasting



Along with Patrick, several Chicago journalists will join us online for the discussion and tasting. Plus the charming @BinnysBev may make an appearance. It should be lively and informative. Even we hope to learn some new things.


Okay, the event is being hosted at TasteLive, so click here before the discussion and tasting to see more details and to set up a TasteLive account. It’s pretty easy – you can sign in with twitter or set up a new username and password. Isn’t social integration cool?


Next, you’re going to want to grab the wines we’re tasting from a Binny’s before the night of the event. These were all selected as affordable examples of the range and style of Alsace, and because they’re available at most Binny’s locations.





We’re pretty stoked on this event, and we hope you can join us online. If not, don’t miss out on the free, in-store, staff-pick Alsace tasting happening the following Saturday, June 30th, at all Binny’s locations. And celebrate Alsace!

  1. I grew up in this region and love the wine. Nice selection of whites and Cremant but sadly completely missing the excellent Pinot Noirs from this region. Also the delicious reds (and whites) from Germany just across the alsatian border (Baden, Kaiserstuhl…) are not available at Binny’s. I’d be a much more frequent customer if a few of those would be added to the Binny’s selection!
