The Wine List October 24 2001
Das bottle: Ach, mein Gott! Chef Guenter Seeger throws his own version of Oktoberfest at Seeger's Oct. 31. His goal, however, is not to frighten you, but to make you as big as a pumpkin with his eight-course food and German wine blitz featuring wines from Gunderloch, Robert Weil Estates and others. Reception, 7 p.m.; dinner, 7:30 p.m. $150 per person (oooh, there's the scary part), inclusive. 111 W. Paces Ferry Road. 404-846-9779.
The web is spun: to trap you at the bar at Lo Spuntino. On Oct. 31, the treat for costumed customers is a free glass of Viansa wine from California. For more structured enology, tastings are held the last Saturday of every month 2:30-4:30 p.m. $10 a person. Lo Spuntino Wine Bar, 3005 Peachtree Road, Suite D. 404-237-5724.
It's getting Chile in Atlanta: Debuting recently at WineSouth, and continuing its push at the Chefs w/Out Hats Disco Inferno Tour weeks ago, MorandeUSA, a Kennesaw-based Chilean wine importer of Vina Morande wines, introduced some delicious and affordable wines. Among them, the peppery, smoky Pionero Syrah is a great value and can be found at Ansley Wine Merchants in Ansley Mall. www.morandeusa.com.
Ongoing: Star power. Sip and savor heady wines at Star Provisions in the company of gourmet foods and accessories. Sample and compare at wine tastings Fridays 7-8 p.m. But be careful — after a few glasses, you'll want to press on through to Bacchanalia. 1198 Howell Mill Road, 404-365-0410, ext. 134.
Put the vin in Vinings Inn, where every Monday is flight night. Enjoy three wines for $15 with food. 3011 Places Mill Road. 770-438-2282.
Tantalize your taste buds Tuesdays at Vino! With a different theme every week, it's always a fresh experience. On Oct. 30, face your fears with Ghostly Grapes. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres. $20. 5-8 p.m. 2900 Peachtree Road. 404-816-0511.
