Wednesday, August 7th 6-9pm: Amy Atwood X Bar Norman
If you follow what’s what in California wine, you probably know about the dynamic bad-ass boss that is Amy Atwood. Her company, Amy Atwood Selections, represents some fantastic California and Oregon wineries, as well as a handful of import portfolios like Jenny & Francois and Eklektikon. And on top of all of that, she also has her own label of California natural wines, OENO. Amy Atwood is NOT. A. SLACKER. We’re pleased to have Amy behind the bar, pouring some of her OENO wines as well as a few favorites from Jenny & Francois. No tickets, just drop in.
