The Winter Wine Celebration ended on Sunday, but wine-lovers can still get their filll.
The Wine Market in Locust Point has declared this Eclectic Wine Month. From Mondays through Thursdays in March, the restaurant is offering half-off select glasses of wine such as Gruner Veltliner, Siyvaner and Murcia. Don't know them? That's the why the Wine Market is doing it. The goal is to enlighten customers about different, more obscure varietals of wine. And, on every Thursday in March, Wine Market beverage director will host a wine talk and tasting on a selected varietal. The wine talks are free, but RSVPs are suggested. Call 410-244-6166.
The menu from Cinghiale executive chef Julian Marucci will be paired with wines from the Brezza estate, which lies close to the heart of Barolo in Italy's Piedmont region. The robust menu includes a first course of celery root sformato — think souffle, but denser — with bone marrow, a first course of agnolotti with mushrooms and foie gras, and a second course of lamb tongue and cheek with turnips, fennel and cipollini onions.
The Brezza Wine Dinner is at 7 p.m. March 14 at Cinghiale, 822 Lancaster St. The cost is $129. Call 410-547-8282 or go to cgeno.com.
