Spatburgunder. Zweigelt. Assyrtiko. Hondarrabi Zuri. These are just a few of the obscure grapes found on general manager Justin Amick's wine list at the Spence. Although familiar tried and trues like cabernet, pinot noir, and chardonnay were invited to the party, bizarre varietals under the heading "Leap of Faith" are where the real fun's at. Amick's list spans the globe, including wines from Switzerland, Lebanon, and lesser-known areas of France such as the Jura, Savoie, and the Jurançon. For those with a penchant for exploring beyond their comfort zones, the wine list at the Spence is the perfect place to embark on a oenological adventure.
