Stem Wine Bar pays homage to the homeland this month, going firecrackers over wines from the U.S.A. From east to west and north to south, our spacious skies shine on grapevine trellised hills as well as those amber waves of grain. Owner/chef Doug Turbush prepares six small bite plates to harmoniously unite with sommelier Chris McNeill’s selections of wines. It’s your patriotic duty to meet these all-American wines in Stem’s unpretentious and fun atmosphere. Wednesday night wine tastings begin at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $40 each (plus $3.19 service fee; gratuity added at in-store checkout). Seats are limited.
