We’re are really excited to participate in our third consecutive La Paulee Restaurant Week this year!  Top restaurants, wine bars and wine retailers all over the country will celebrate February 22 – March 5 by pouring exciting wines from the Burgundy region and planning special events to showcase these great wines.  Our marquee event at Tannin will be a Burgundy Wine Dinner with Greg Powell of Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant on Thursday February 25.  We’ll be offering a five course menu paired with top Burgundies from Domaine Savary in Chablis, Domaine de Cherisey in Puligny-Montrachet, Domaine Dupeuble in Beaujolais, Domaine Robert Chevillon in Nuits-Saint-Georges and Bruno Colin in Chassagne-Montrachet.  The price for the dinner with wine is $75 per guest.  Reservations are limited and can be made by calling 816-842-2660 or emailing

Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant has been one of the leading importers of artisan wines from France since the 1970s.  Kermit represents some of the most sought after producers in Europe and has been instrumental in building the reputation of many of the growers that he admires and represents.  Kermit Lynch is also a small retailer in Berkeley, California and that shows through in the care that the company takes in ensuring that the wines they represent are enjoyed by the consumer.  Today the portfolio includes wines zealously chased by the most aspirational collectors, delicious gems for wine drinkers on more modest budgets and all kinds of good stuff in between.  We hope that you can join us for this memorable dinner with Greg Powell!


We hope that you’ll join us for another wonderful New Year’s Eve at Tannin to ring in 2016!  We’re offering reservations throughout the evening (816-842-2660).  Both a five course tasting menu and a la carte menus will be offered (links below).

We’ll also be hosting live local jazz featuring Mark Southerland, Annie Ellicott, Bill McKemy and Brian Steever from 9:00 pm to 1:00 am!  We think that we have all of the makings of another fun, exciting and elegant New Year’s Eve in Kansas City and hope that you will join us to make it all the more special!

Rudi Wiest Wine Dinner Menu Link

$65 per guest, Reservations 816-842-2660 or

We’re pleased to announce that our second wine dinner of the fall will feature Rudi Wiest of Rudi Wiest Selections.  Rudi is a legend in the wine industry, having imported many of the very best German wine estates since the 1970s.  The dinner will showcase wines from Wagner-Stempel (Rheinhessen), JJ Prum (Mosel), Raumland (Rheinhessen), Schloss Hallburg (Franken) & Meyer-Nakel (Ahr).  While Germany’s wine reputation is built on the classic Rieslings, both dry and sweet, this dinner will be a great venture into a number of grapes and regions producing exciting wine across Germany.  Silvaner makes deliciously savory white wines that are excellent with vegetables.  And red wine, especially Pinot Noir, is established as a world class grape in several German wine regions including the tiny Ahr which makes some of the most prized Pinots in the world.  We hope you can join us as Rudi guides us through the exciting world of German wine!

Tannin has been featured in several recent national media articles including last Friday’s USA Today.  Larry Bleiberg writes “The bar is right at home in the city’s hip and historic Crossroads Art District of modified warehouses and other industrial buildings.  Along with the setting Cappiali appreciates the variety:  Customers can try wines in a 2-ounce taster or by the glass or bottle.  The international selection is also noteworthy. “Here you might find a New Zealand pinot” he says.”  The full article can be found at
