Critics, upstate: Grazing means sampling casually, and that’s just what Tom Hudson wants customers to do at Domaine Hudson Wine Bar & Eatery. Hudson’s creative small plates and seemingly endless variety of small wine pours allow Domaine diners to cover a lot of ground in one sitting. For example, Hudson’s daily 3-3-3 Happy Hour tasting recently featured three 3-ounce pours of French Pinot Noirs at $3 each: a 2007 Vignoble Guillaume, VDP de Franch-Comté; a 2007 Domaine Daniel Rion from Bourgogne, Burgundy; and a 2005 Domaine Olivier & Anne-Marie Rion “La Pretière” from Côte de Nuits Villages, Burgundy. The wines were paired with handcrafted cheese from New York’s Artisanal and Murray’s cheeses (three cheeses for $15 or five cheeses for $25). Check the chalkboard for the latest grazing opportunities. (1314 Washington St., Wilmington, 655-9463)
