Locations Wine Dinner

  • Biga Restaurant 4329 South Peoria Avenue Tulsa, OK, 74105 United States (map)

“The history of Dave Phinney ‘the Winemaker’, dates to 1995 when, Dave took a friend up on an offer and went to Florence, Italy to spend a semester abroad. During that time, he was introduced to wine, how it was made, and had to know more. A few more years of university led to graduation and eventually a job at Robert Mondavi Winery in 1997 as a temporary harvest worker. Deciding that if he was going to work this hard, it would eventually have to be for himself, so in 1998 he founded his first wine brand with two tons of zinfandel and not much else. He spent the next decade making wine for others as well as himself and has now grown multiply companies into internationally renowned brands. His international ambition with Locations Wine has led him to Spain, France, Italy, Portugal, Corsica, Argentina and other locations around the globe. The vision here is to create the best possible wine that represents its Location across wine regions of the world. The intent is to make wine less complicated and remove restrictions that limit freedom and sense of expression. As such Locations purposefully blends across appellations to produce wine removing restrictions held within traditional winemaking circles. An ambitious project where innovation and freedom meet on a global journey of discovery, exploring the worlds Locations through wine.”

1st Course

Wine-New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc

“In the glass, a brilliant pale yellow reminiscent of white currants; the wine opens with an intense bouquet of gooseberries, feijoas, and ripe tropical fruits. The bright entry of fresh cut grass and preserved lemon lead to passionfruit pot de creme showcasing a long ?nish of fresh herbs and clean minerality.”

2nd Course
Lasagna Bolognese

Wine-Italian Red
A blend of Negroamaro and Nero d’Avola from the Southern region of Puglia combined with Barbera from Piemonte in the North.

“A vast array of aromas escapes the glass—black cherry, nutmeg, cinnamon, and cured meat—which are complemented by shades of sandalwood, vanilla, balsa and evergreen. The entry is silky smooth with a textured mid-palate of velvety ?g, blueberry jam and soft oak. A hint of sea salt on the ?nish is rounded out with a mouthfeel that fades slowly.”

Texas BBQ Beef Brisket

Wine-Texas Red Wine
A blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Carignan, and assorted Bordeaux varietals.

“A beautiful dusty plum hue sits in the glass with bursting aromas of black plum and raspberries, ?oral notes of lilac and rose complemented by hints of cedar, black tea and slate. On the palate, ?avors of red fruits, cranberries, grapefruit and cherry cola sync with a bright and fresh acidity—a lively ?nish that lingers.”
