Featured Wine
“Being in the South, we are a very pork-friendly food culture without a wine tradition to go hand-in-hand with it,” says Tunstall. “Using some great pork-friendly areas around the world like Alsace, Austria and Germany, it has been an amazing experience to bounce the wines of these cultures off very traditional Southern fare. The biggest wine discovery this year being Domaine Weinbach 2009 Cuvée Laurence Gewurztraminer. With its viscosity, power, aromatics and acidity, it does amazing things with slow cooked ribs and pork in general.”

The Wine Program
The list is organized by soil type, with 50 selections per evening listed under categories including limestone, granite, slate, volcanic and alluvial. “The goal of the list is to highlight wines that taste like the soil from which they are born, and showcase wines with minimal intervention in the cellar,” says Matt Tunstall, the sommelier. “The most expensive wine is $99, and approximately half of the wines are listed by the glass, but all of the selections are available by the glass upon request.”
