Thursday, June 30, 6:30-8:30pm: "The Wine Experience" June – November at The Faithful Pilot Café & Spirits. Tired of losing the battle with the wine menu or being intimidated by some snooty wine sommelier?

Enjoy eight to ten wines with great food bites specifically selected to explore an entirely different wine grape, region, or concept. This experience is designed to educate while taking you on a tour of the universe of wine. This will be a once a month experience that will happen the last Thursday of every month. June - November 6-8:30pm. Limited availability; $35 for each tasting or $180 for all six. Call 563-289-4156 to reserve your spot.
