Patrick Emerson Wine Bar Pops Up at High Wire Distilling Co.

A pop-up may sounds like a casual affair, but advanced sommelier Patrick Emerson is taking his upcoming temporary residency at High Wire Distilling Co. so seriously that he’s created a video to promote it.

As Emerson says in the ad, the Nov. 14 event will feature Sicilian wines, including a few varietals which Emerson surmises many potential tasters have never heard of. He’s quite possibly right, since I can’t make sense of the two grapes he mentions before Nero d’Avola: I’d like to blame his British accent, but suspect my knowledge of southern Italian varietals is failing me. (Here’s a comprehensive list of the region’s varietals if you need any help playing along.)

Butcher & Bee is selling take-out snacks for the pop-up, or guests can purchase wine by the bottle and tote it with them to the nearby restaurant. The party runs from 6 p.m. until “late.”

  1. This is Kevin Kelley’s Pop Up Wine Bar that he has been doing at Proof on Tuesday nights. Will definitely be there.
