Transmutation and Transformation at Dinner 

Wednesday, Jul 9 2008
Overeducated and slightly batty winemaker Abe Schoener studied the classics and philosophy. His current take on them makes us think of Donna Tartt's novel The Secret History, in which some undergraduates bacchanal too hard after cultishly studying ancient Greek. But we're sure Schoener won't wake up with blood in his hair; not at Bacar, anyway. He will, however, feed you five courses of heretical decadence and sling you nine of his vintages to go with it. His Scholium Project involves his own sourcing of grapes and small-batch pressing and fermenting. He's the kind of winemaker who turns out maybe 200 bottles of any one varietal per year -- they don't come cheap and they don't last. The '07 Gemella, the '06 Prince and His Caves, an older Scheria, and other book-smart bottles are massed behind the city walls, waiting for you.
