“The Dinner Club with Jim White” invites you to a special event on Saturday May 8th, from 3 until 6 p.m.

Be sure to join us for the grand opening celebration of the brand new, beautiful Centennial Fine Wine and Spirits location on Lowest Greenville.

I’ll be there, along with the folks from KRLD (giving away some great prizes), and we’ll be sampling some delicious wines.  You will want to take these babies home with you!  Especially at the great sale prices Centennial will be offering on our tasting specials and dozens of other great wines featured in the new location.

We’ll be tasting a range of delicious wine varietals:

Newton Red Label Chardonnay

Newton Red Label Cabernet

Monsanto Chianti Classico Reserva

Moët Nectar Imperial

The new store is located at 1704 Greenville Avenue, Corner of Ross Avenue, Dallas, TX 75206.  It is a happening corner in the heart of Lowest Greenville, and will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood.  Here’s the phone number if you want to put it in speed dial:  214-515-0683.  Never know when you might have a wine question.  The wine experts at Centennial can answer it!  We’ll see you there on May 8th.  Salut!

News You Can Use about Wining and Dining with Jim White April 22, 2010

The only thing you need to remember about tasting wine is:

See it.  Swirl it.  Smell it.  Sip it.  Spit it. Start over.

That’s a bit of an oversimplification, of course, but actually wine experts are made one sip at a time.  It is a journey not a destination.  The key is to remember what you’ve tasted, and to apply some sense memory

to the experience so that you have a base reference to compare other wines you try.  Once you get that part down.  The rest is fairly easy and enjoyable.  Wine events are there to give you a big wide showcase of varietals to try.  It can be a bombardment to your senses.  Just remember point 5 in the little wine primer above:  spit it (preferably in a dump bucket).  The only way to survive these big wine extravaganza’s is to sample the wine and NOT drink it all.  If you want to get to any level of wine appreciation above the drunk designation, please do not try to consume everything that is within reach.  That said.  Enjoy the grand daddy of Texas wine events that is now in full swing:  The 26th Annual Dallas Wine and Food Festival. It is the one usually referred to as “The Dallas Morning News Wine Festival”, because all the wines from the competition of that name are featured during the event. The festival has events now through Sunday.  Check out their website for all the details.  The highlights include:

  • The Rising Stars Chefs’ Dinner tonight (4/22) at the Nasher Sculpture Center

  • Texas Salute! at Eddie Deen’s Ranch on Friday night (4/23)

  • Entertaining with Style at the Shops at Legacy on Saturday (4/24)

  • Taste of the World and Farmers Market Friends Auction at Union Station on Sunday (4/25)

Ticket prices vary, and range from $25 to $100 per person.  Get more details at 214-741-6888 or 214-741-6889.  Cheers!  Let me know if you attend.  I’d like to see how you like the event.
