Tasting (walk around)     Weekly Event     Wine    
Even though the most biting cold has moved on (for now!), this is still the time of year for richer whites and bold, powerful, warming reds. So join us on Friday from 3-7pm and Saturday from noon-4pm as we sample some great (and great value) examples like:
 
Geoffrey Chevalier Pouilly-Loche 2015 - This tastes far more expensive than it's sub-$25 price suggests with loads of depth and drive and a wonderfully hazelnutty finish.
 
Le-Chai Duchet Vire Clesse Quintessence 2015 - A powerhouse white Burgundy from 80 year-old vines growing on Vire Clesse’s chalky limestone soils. No oak, lots of lees contact, and fabulous richness and depth here.
 
Ch Les Conseillans Reserve de Pre-Carre 2015 - A luscious, velvety, 2015 Bordeaux sporting an attractive 90 point rating and Best Buy designation from Wine Enthusiast and an even more attractive $14.98/ea case price this week!
 
Les Vignerons De Tavel Lirac Les Hauts d'Acantalys 2015 - Lirac can rival Chateauneuf du Pape for powerful purity in Grenache-based reds, and this great value example shows you how. Bold, rich and delightfully inexpensive, too!
 
Sette Ponti Crognolo Toscana 2015 - Assuming this hasn’t already sold out, this will be your chance to sample a 94 point (Suckling) super-Tuscan red and take some home at whopping 45% savings from $21.98!
 
We’ll have some treats from the cheese case out to enjoy with the wines and best, mix/match, savings during the tasting, too. Bring a friend or two and join us for some wonderful warming treats!
