X-marx and Perman Wine Selections Present: Txakoholika 2012
Saturday, May 19th, 6pm-11pm
For one night only, please join X-marx and Perman Wine Selections on a guided wine tour through the Northern Spain countryside as we celebrate Basque cuisine, Txakoli and Cider!
This is our fourth year of Txakoholika (Choc-o-hol-i-ka), where we turn Perman Wine Selections into a Basque-style Pintxos bar offering a selection of small bites, and a tasting of 4 different Txakolina and 2 ciders. This is a great opportunity to experience these new vintages of Txakoli, learn a little something about Northern Spain’s food and wine culture and to eat and drink how the Basque do.
Craig Perman will be your tour guide through Northern Spain’s wine and cider country, stamping your passport with a sample glass of each of the 6 varieties for you to enjoy -either from the glass to the lips, or if you prefer, at arm’s length from the Porrón! Attendees will also be able to purchase these limited Txakolina and Sidra for all of your summer drinking needs!
X-marx will also be guiding your taste buds on a journey through an eclectic mix of bold and interesting flavors built to complement the bright acidity and slight effervescence of the Txakoli in the traditional finger food style of the region the wines originate from. And no Basque celebration is complete without Sidra, or hard Basque cider, and we will taste new vintages from two artisan producers.
This event has been a blast every time we’ve done it, and we’re looking forward to Adge’s famous Porrón chug, Perman’s fancy pours and rocking the west loop once again!
We look forward to seeing you there!
