Oenophiles, take note: There are some fabulous events coming up at Café Trio and Tannin that you won’t want to miss.

Mar. 1st – UPDATE from Tannin Wine Bar on the Burgundy dinner:

“Our La Paulee Burgundy Tasting, featuring 60+ top wines from France’s Burgundy region, has been postponed to Sunday March 16 from 2:00 – 5:00. See details in post below and reserve your place by calling 816-842-2660 or email barryt@tanninwinebar.com.”

Café Trio is highlighting wines of Pacific Northwest in its Winter Wine Dinner on Feb. 26. The restaurant’s chef, Adam Yoder, has created a five-course menu to pair with Oregon and Washington-produced wines by Owen Roe Vineyards & Winery. The lineup includes a wide range of styles, including Riesling, Cab Franc and Syrah, matched with Yoder’s mouthwatering dishes, such as roasted domestic lamb merguez sausage served with white turnip mash, roasted “sunchokes” and lion’s mane mushrooms. The dinner is $59 per person, with tickets available online now.

Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen is once again proving it can hold its own with some of the best wine-focused restaurants in the country with its next big events. The restaurant will play host to La Paulee Burgundy Week, created by Daniel Johnnes, head sommelier at New York’s Restaurant Daniel to celebrate the cuisine and wines of the region. Burgundy wines will be flowing from March 2 – 15, punctuated by two major events: a guided “Taste the Terroir” tasting ($40, with half going to charity) of more than 40 wines on Sunday, March 2, and a wine dinner ($85) featuring wines from some legendary Burgundy producers on Thursday, March 13. Call Tannin to reserve.
