Tasty Tuesday!
"Spring Flowers"

  This Tuesday, April 2nd, 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!
Dogwood (w/framing)
   Spring is indeed upon us, and we've selected three blossomy whites which bloom with aromas that put us in the mood for picnics and evening walks. We'll begin with an enticing Verdejo from Navarra before exploring one of our favorite and most exotic German blends. Finally, we'll reach a (spring) fever pitch of floral romance with a dry, exceptionally expressive Muscat from the Languedoc.

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

Alsace's Cave Freudenreich
Freudenreich Pfaffenheim
    This Saturday, journey with us to one of France's most heralded regions for white wine and one which may have strangely joined the ranks of its most underrepresented.  Alsace is famous for the minerality, ethereal perfume, and age-worthy acidity often found in its wines, and we've fallen in love with these traits (as well as the exceptionally great value) in the wines of Cave Freudenreich.  Join us from noon to three as we begin with a delicious liter-sized equivalent of a "greatest hits" comp featuring a blend of the region's main grape varietals.  Next, we'll taste a pair of very different dry Rieslings - one gentle and seductive, the other firm, crisp, and brilliantly bright.  We'll end on a celebratory note with a sample of the estate's beautiful bubbly, a classic Alsatian Cremant.  Cheers!
