    Each Bin 36 wine tasting will be held on the last Wednesday of the month and features a different theme.

    Do you get nervous when the waiter hands you the wine list and your date looks at you like you're supposed to know what you're doing? Did you out yourself as a wine novice by ordering White Zinfandel at that fancy-schmancy dinner party?

    Not everyone needs to be a wine snob, but a little wine education never hurt anyone. Bin 36's new Wednesday Wine Arounds wine series should help.

    Starting January 28 from 6 - 8 p.m., and one Wednesday every month, Bin 36 will host a tasting in the upstairs loft area featuring wines from all over the world.

    The $25 fee allows you to sample the wines selected by Wine Director Brian Duncan, and also enjoy light bites from Executive Chef John Caputo.

    Each tasting will have a different theme.

    • Jan. 28: Hottest Wines Under $20
    • Feb. 25: Experience Brian Duncan's own award-winning wines which were featured in Food & Wine and Wine Enthusiast magazines. Three new varietels will debut, including the signature 10th Anniversary Sparkling Cuvee.
    • March 25: The BIN 36 Spring Fling features hot wines for Spring and how to pair them with seasonal recipes.
