At BTG Wine Bar wine lovers can enjoy a wide range of different wines available in 2-ounce tastes, 5-ounce pours, or by-the-bottle. But maybe the best way to sample an array of wines at BTG is by ordering one of their wine flights.
The wine flights are composed of three glasses of 2-ounce tastes (6-ounces total), and BTG offers over a dozen different wine flights with varying themes. Examples include “Eleven Million Bubbles,” “Showy Chardonnay,” “A Glance at France,” “When Pigs Fly,” and “Life is Sweet.”
I really love a crisp white wine with great mineral backbone, and BTG’s “50 Shades of Gris” ($15.50) is the perfect answer: three different versions of Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio. Start off with yummy M. Felluga Pinot Grigio from Italy before moving on to a domestic Pinot Gris from Oregon’s Ransom Winery. Both are very good, clean examples of great Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio. However, my favorite wine of the “50 Shades of Gris” wine flight at BTG is the sensational Domaines Schlumberger Pinot Gris from Alsace, France. If you’re ever curious about how a top-notch Alsatian Pinot Gris should taste, treat yourself to some Schlumberger. You won’t regret it.
And, remember that BTG recently moved from their original location on 100 South to more spacious digs at 404 S. West Temple.
