Wine and Tapas Testing at Tavern 27 Saturday night at 8 p.m. (254)

LACONIA — Winemaker Kenny Likitprakong of Hobo Wine Company will be at Tavern 27 at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 8 for an evening of Wine and Tapas.
Likitprakong started his company, Hobo Wine Co. in 2002 in California at Hallcrest Vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains. The Hobo Wine Co. makes and markets a distinctly nontraditional series of wines using sustainably farmed, organic grapes and vegan methods of wine making. His wines are notably approachable and unpretentious, just like the winemaker himself.
Likitprakong had determined that Hobo Wine Company would make no guarantees about repeating a varietal year after year. Each bottling would be a live-in-the-moment, you-may-not-get-it-again release.
"Kenny's wines are not widely available and we are extremely fortunate to have them here in New Hampshire," states Leslie Judice, co-owner and chef of Tavern 27. "His wines are the kind that chefs love, as they have a very clean flavor profile that pair well with food. Being that we share Kenny's appreciation for quality, organic ingredients, we are extremely excited about his visit and look forward to sharing his wines."
The tasting includes four wines of Hobo Wine Company and four tapas dishes from Tavern 27; the price for this informal event is $40 per person if purchased by Friday, June 7.
Wines will include Folk Machine Pinot Noir, Hobo Dry Creek Zinfandel, Banyan Riesling, and Camp Chardonnay. Kenny will be present to talk about his wines and to answer questions.
Advance tickets for this event can be purchased at or by calling 603-528-3057. Dietary preferences can be accommodated.
