It’s all about experimentation at Tannin, with almost 90 glass options (available as full pours or “tastes”) and many bottle selections under $50. KC locals will want a wine club membership, which gets them a monthly bottle and access to special events and tastings.
From The Sommelier: “A couple things: In Italy, our guests are also really excited about some of the lesser known native varieties of regions like Alto-Adige, Emilia-Romagna, Abruzzo & Calabria. Italy can be such a complex and dynamic wine country that it offers drinkers almost endless opportunities for exploration. And lighter, higher acid reds. Jura, Loire, Beaujolais, German Spätburgunder, Austria, Finger Lakes, Michigan. Guests are looking for these styles for refreshing, drinkable and food-friendly wines.” —Barry Tunnell, Tannin Wine Bar & Kitchen
