Tasty Tuesday
Effervesce into  Summer!
sparkling array
     This Tuesday, June 19th, we present our weekly "Tasty Tuesday" FREE wine tasting.  Every Tuesday is tasty!  From 5:00 until 6:30, we host this FREE bonus tasting of three wines to get you through the early week and land you safely on hump day.
     The shimmering oasis - a hallmark of hot weather.  How do we conjure one, however?  Well, most successfully with wine!  This week (on the final afternoon of spring), we'll be sampling three wines with their own delightful shimmer. 
     First, we'll introduce the new vintage of the highly ambassadorial Fuzelo Vinho Verde before moving on to the everlasting and uncompromisingly refreshing sparkle of Mas Codina's signature Brut Cava, and finally arriving at a spicy dry Lambrusco which brings the perfect balance of fun and complexity.  So cheers to summer and the always welcome oasis in a bottle that is effervescent wine! 
This Saturday from 12 to 3 PM  
"try before you buy" at
our FREE tasting

     Amity IslandJust when you think it's safe to go back in the water,  you might ask yourself, "do I have the right wines for the occasion?"
     This Saturday, we'll be presenting four wines perfect for accompanying you to your beach getaways and poolside shenanigans, and they will be every bit as much at home plate-side (enhancing the enjoyment of your favorite seafood dishes).
    We'll begin with the most tried and true - a white which cuts like a knife through the shining surf with bright citrus and mineral.  Next, we'll have a closer look at one of this year's newest additions to the Rosé Garden and two versatile reds which are plenty rich enough to satisfy, but still delicate enough for summer fun!
