It's Friady night. Go out and have a nice dinner, but afterwards drop by the WineXplorer for a selection of after dinner wines and specially prepared desserts.

Cost - $10, pay at the door.

Among the wines we will be tasting are:

1. Il Falchetto Moscato D'Asti - Italy's most celebrated Moscato d'Asti. Awarded the prestigious Tre Bicchieri (3 Glasses) Award by Gambero Rosso. The only Moscato to receive 3 Glasses and one of only 30 wines under $20 so honored. It truly is nectar. Just arrived in Atlanta. ($18)

Dessert: Sauteed North Georgia Apples with Moscato Sabayon

2. Il Falchetto Brachetto d'Acqui - This sparkling red wine will stun you. The rare Brachetto is like nothing else. It is a celebration in a glass. If you are thinking of a great wine for the holiday season, this is it. Just arrived in Atlanta. ($21)

3. Zeni Recioto della Valpolicella - For those of you who like Zeni's Amarone Barriques, this is the dessert wine you have waited for. Same grapes, same process. But fermentation is stopped early leaving this wine deliciously sweet. This has been called Italy's Port, and there is good reason. ($27 for 375 ml.)

We look forward to seeing everyone and getting the Fall off to a good start.
