"Lovin' Bubbles" 


On February 14th, you'll swoon over our 

Valentine's class on sparkling wine & chocolate.

7:33 pm

     Bubbles are terribly misunderstood... until now. Don't know your Cava from your Sekt? Just what is the difference between Spumante and Frizzante?  Why must Champagne always be so French? Well, this class will take you through the world of sparkling wines (and feature bubbly from around the world).
     We'll dispel myths, defy logic and drink fizzy drinks. The evening will end up with dessert sparklers and exceptional chocolate. If you've been afraid of effervescence, fear no more!  We'll show you the good stuff that won't cost you a monk and a leg.
Thursday, February 14th at 7:33 pm
$48 per person*

Tasty Tuesday!
"Tuesday à la Toulouse" 

  This Tuesday, January 5th, 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!
Chateau la Colombiere
    Less than half an hour north of what can be described as France's southwestern capital, Toulouse, lies Fronton, the rustic stomping ground for the unique Négrette grape.  Join us this Tuesday as we sample three wines from Chateau la Colombiere (pictured above) starring the juicy dark-skinned varietal.  We'll begin with the estate's Vin Gris, a rosé which is as sumptuous and ripe as it is crisp and refreshing before tasting a bright but earthy example of the grape flying solo.  We'll finish with a Négrette-centric blend featuring Syrah and the Cabernets (Franc & Sauvignon).

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

Aljoscha Goldschmidt Join us this Saturday as we welcome Fattoria Corzano e Paterno's Aljoscha Goldschmidt to our weekly Saturday tasting.  Aljoscha, who represents his family's farm less than ten miles south of Florence, will be pouring three of the estate's sincere, wholesome, and vibrantly characterful wines from noon to three. Working organically,  the fattoria not only farms grapes but produces a range of cheeses as well from their fleet of Sardinian sheep.  Samples of one of these cheeses, though currently unavailable for purchase, will be served to complete our weekend Tuscan vignette.  Cin Cin!
