Penny Pinch Budget Relief Selections:
Daily, desirable,
and always reliable!

    Recovering from the holiday rush isn't just about finding safe and creative ways to dispose of fruit cakes.  It's also about finding creative ways to balance your checkbook!  We've made budget-conscious wine shopping easy with a display featuring just a few of our favorite top-value contenders.  Join us this Saturday and have a taste of four of them!  Stop pinching pennies and check out the Saturday Tasting details below!


Our first class of 2013 is scheduled:


Vine to Wine 

On Thursday, January 24th, we present our in-depth introductory wine class.  7:33pm

    Join us for a fun and educational evening of wine which chronicles a vine's bud break in the spring to each of its grapes being lovingly squeezed into the bottles that we hold so dear.  We cover how vines grow, how wine is made, how to read a label, how to buy wine, how to store wine, how to drink, er, taste wine... and we'll debunk many wine myths throughout this two hour class.
(includes tasting wines, video presentation, and handouts) 
Thursday, January 24th at 7:33pm
$36 per person
Reservations required

Tasty Tuesday!
The Wagram Power Hour
with Anton Bauer *
*Anton Bauer not included

  This Tuesday, January 15th, 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!
Bauer & Wagram
    Young, passionate, and already iconic, Anton Bauer of Austria's Wagram has established his wines as some of the region's finest.  What's even better news for us is that they remain exceptional values!  At this week's Tasty Tuesday, we'll be tasting his ripe, expressive Grüner, searingly dry (and seriously delicious) Riesling, and his elegantly rich Pinot Noir - each equally impressive in its own right and perfect in the WEEKLY price category!

And don't forget:
Our 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 
"try before you buy" at
our FREE tasting 

Money Bag This Saturday's "Budget Relief" wines will allow you continue to drink in style while pinching pennies.  In fact, they'll have you pinching yourself as you struggle to reconcile their unbelievable deliciousness with their purse-sparing Daily price tags! Featuring both old favorites and brand new arrivals, this is a tasting sure to satisfy your cravings.  Provençal rosé, dry Riesling from northeastern Italy, rich and soft Corvina from Verona, and Merlot from Mediterranean France are the order of the day, so taste, save, and enjoy budgeting for a change!
