Fermented grapes flourish at Georgetown Wine and Spirits, where a wide range of international bottles await oral adoption by thirsty parents. Customers can peruse Georgetown's variety of varietals, including cabernet, riesling, pinot noir, and merlot, all artfully arranged according to the grape type. Certified sommelier Jon Link, the acting syrah-sergeant of Georgetown Wine and Spirits, sensibly supervises the selection of international sips and suggests his favorites to amateur wine enthusiasts. Wash down a fresh meal or a fresh comeback with a 2007 Morro Bay chardonnay ($10.99) or a 2005 S.A. Prum WS auslese ($29.99). Or opt for a 2009 Thirsty Owl riesling ($13.99) to add appropriately sophisticated accompaniment an evening of jazz and bird calling.
When it comes to wine, David and Tasia Verno follow the same philosophy as Goldilocks: Why settle for one when you could try three? Trios of wines from across the world are thus a mainstay of their menu at Flight Wine Bar. These samplers come with themed names—Instant Zen and California Retreat, for example—and incorporate wines from Italy, Chile, France, and Germany in addition to the United States. There's the Bubbly Flight for sparkling wine enthusiasts, the alluring scents of Aroma Therapy, and Sweet Emotion, which matches a Red Newt riesling with a Bigi Orvieto Classico and an Elmo Pio moscato.
Of course, Flight Wine Bar also has wines available by the glass or bottle. In addition, the staff furnishes tables with artisanal snacks. Guests can order imported cheeses, such as the sycamore-leaf-wrapped Spanish valdeón. The dessert chocolates are all handcrafted, and the truffles are all handpicked from the secret truffle tree that you should absolutely not tell anyone about.
