To spread the word, and raise more money for research, we're gonna sell a ton of pink wine this October!  Rosť never really goes "out of season" but it's time once again to make room for our autumn favorites and holiday selections.  Throughout the month of October, all rosť (both from the Garden and beyond) is a full 20% off.  As always, a portion of every rosť sale is contributed directly to the fight against breast cancer.  With your rosť-lovin' help we've raised over $12,000 so far!      
Free shipping
throughout October!

     We're gearing up for the big "shipping season" and the approaching holiday season with an entire month of free ground shipping on any order over $200.  Send your out-of-state friends and family some love via Wine Authorities!

Rosť Limerick Contest 2012   
And the winner is...
Constitution or limerick contest entry?
They've done it! Their judgement is final. After weeks of pouring through the thousands of entries (not really) our judges have agreed on the best of 2012:
Bronze medal winner 2012:

When I'm wrecked from the stress of the day,

And my Doc claims,"An apple a day..."

Yet I like other fruit,

So when I take off my suit,

I have a bottle-sized glass of rose!

- Brian D. (2 bottles of DAILY priced rosť)


Silver medal winner 2012:

Rose' gets its blush from grape skin,

Whereas my blush comes from within

If I drink enough glasses,

I get the "hot flashes"

And my clothes all end up in the bin

- Susan J. ($30 Enomatic card)
And the winner is...
Gold medal winner 2012:

Wine Authorities' fine lads and lasses

Bring knowledge and joy to the masses;

The wine loving tribe

That comes there to imbibe

Sees the world through rosť-colored glasses!

- Sylvia P. ($50 gift certificate)

Tasty Tuesday! 
"Silly for Sicily"

  This Tuesday, October 9th, we present our mid-week FREE wine tasting.  Every Tuesday is tasty! From 5:00 - 7:00, we host this bonus tasting of three wines to get you through the early week and land you safely on hump day!
   While it's true that we've previously described ourselves as "silly for Sicily," that silliness is seriously reaching a fever pitch.  With several new selections and more on the way, we thought that we'd take the opportunity to introduce a few of them to you.  At this week's Tasty Tuesday, we'll be sampling the latest vintage of an old favorite, the Casa Ibidini Insolia as well as two exciting (and uniquely Sicilian) reds from CalÚ Giordano which are completely new to the United States.  
And don't forget:
Tasty Tuesday 20% 
Mixed Case Discount! 
    After you taste, put together 12 bottles from our Tasty Tuesday lineup, and we'll take an entire 20% off!
This Saturday from 12 to 3 PM

our FREE tasting
Discover Slovenia's Brda! 
Reya & Reja
Brda's Oton Reya & Borut Reja
Slovenia's Brda, a region whose name can be translated roughly to "the hills," borders (and can be thought of as a continuation of) Italy's more famous Collio appellation.  It excels in the production of both whites and reds, representing an exciting new frontier mostly undiscovered by many wine lovers.  This Saturday, fall in love with Brda's fabulous flysch, marl, and sandstone terroir and Adriatic climate as seen through the lenses of three exotic, minerally whites and a robustly elegant red that has quickly become a staff and customer favorite!

(WEEKLY WINE: $12 to $19.99)
