Upcoming Tastings and Events

Whether speaking with our wine consultants or reading our daily emails, our goal at Morrell is to share wines we think you'll love. But we still know the best—and most fun—way to explore new wines is by tasting them yourself. Our tastings are a wonderful way to discover your next favorite wine in a friendly, informative setting. Check back to get updates, or sign up for our email newsletter (to the left) and always be the first to hear about everything at Morrell.

Unless otherwise noted, our classes, tastings, and events are held at the Morrell & Company Wine Store at One Rockefeller Plaza, on 49th Street between 5th and 6th Ave. For more information please contact Mark D. Smith at 212-378-6507 or marks@morrellwine.com.

Donelan Family Wines is a small, family-run boutique winery in Sonoma County producing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and the most exciting Syrah this side of the Rhone Valley. Joe Donelan started PAX wine cellars with his partner in 2000, achieving consistently high-90 scores and critical acclaim. In 2008 he bought out his partner and rebranded the winery as Donelan Family Wines. Since then the high scores have continued on Donelan's fantastic wines--most of which are limited to fewer than 400 cases.

Friday Tastings: Wines for Thanksgiving
Friday, Nov 22
4pm to 6:30pm
FREE

Our Friday tasting series explore wines we love that we think more people should know about. Whether it's a cult favorite or a mainstream wines we just really enjoy, we are hand-picking three exciting wines from our extensive fine wine collection at each event. We hope you'll find something you love. Join us for an afternoon tasting of some wines that will be perfect with your Thanksgiving Fare.

Tasting: Wines for Thanksgiving
Weingut St. Urbans-Hof Nik Weis Selection Urban Riesling Mosel 2011
Brilliant fruit and Mosel-slate mineral flavors, lively acidity, and ripe floral aromas. Delicious on its own, or a perfect accompaniment to light or spicy dishes: try it with smoked trout and horseradish creme fraiche or with a spiced pumpkin soup.

St. Urbans Hof Riesling Spatlese Mosel Piesport Goldtropfchen 2011
"Goldtrö pfchen' translates from German into 'little golden drops', a fitting name for such legendary wines from a vineyard in the Mosel that dates from Roman times. All the wines grown here provide a natural sweetness necessary to stress this vineyard's character. This forward sweetness gives notes of black currant, passionfruit, and grapefruit. Try this wine with a seared fois gras with passion fruit coulis, or alongside a blue cheese and an apricot mostarda di frutta.

Les Bedines Chateauneuf du Pape 2009
Sourced from old vines, and made with minimal oak aging, this wine is powerful yet elegant. Wine Spectator says Les Bedines has "a dark, gutsy style, with a tarry frame and a robust core of pastis, blackberry cobbler and melted licorice snap. Singed wood and charcoal notes line the finish." (90 points). We love the powerful flavors and medium body with lively acidity which will make this CdP a perfect accompaniment for the tradition roast turkey with all the trimmings.
