Saturday, June 21
Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield. Maumee, (419) 794-4000. 12:00 – 5:00 PM. Rethinking Chardonnay and Merlot. It would be easy to think of Chardonnay and Merlot as boring old standards - incapable of making really interesting wine.  It would be easy, but you would be wrong!  This tasting scours the world to find really cool and usual versions of these most prosaic of grapes.  This should be fun.
