The Wine Hit List, Early Summer Edition: Estadio, Apéro, Dauphine, and More

By

Just in time for Memorial Day, Mayor Bowser lifted many pandemic dining restrictions, so our bars are (mostly) back, and the city has a pulse once more. After the trials of the past year, many wine programs are in the process of a rebuild, and of course restaurants are gradually getting the band back together for service.

It won’t happen overnight so patience and gratitude on our parts is a must. But without haste, beat the queues and get yourself a reservation, all the sooner to toast to putting 2020 behind us, with gained perspective and appreciation for the pleasures of sherry and tapas at Estadio, amber wines in the alley at Maydan, Champagne and caviar at Apéro in Georgetown, and much more — all here on your early summer Wine Hit List.
