Plenty of chances to have plenty of fun this Memorial Day weekend – including some fun wine tasting!  Join us from 3-7pm on Friday and noon-4pm on Saturday and sample these summery selections:

Girolamo Russo Etna Rosato 2021 – With Doug just back from Sicily and visiting the winery, it’s fun to show off this different take on pink wine from Mount Etna’s famed Nerello Mascalese grape. Zesty.

Ze Becco Verdicchio dei Castelli di Jesi 2022 – this is definitely going to be your go to summer white for any occasion where great wine and huge savings come together. Crisp, mouthwatering, just $8.98/ea by the case.

Netzl Gruner Veltliner Carnuntum Classic 2022 – A wonderfully different take on Austrian GV from the super-talented Christina Netzl. Shows the more mineral, salty, side of the grape with refreshing vigor.

Luigi Giordano Langhe Rosso 2022 – With summer on the horizon, it’s time for “chillable reds” – like this one! A mishmash of grapes from outside Barolo, it’s crunchy, fresh, and loads of fun.

Zeitgeist Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2020 – 100% Cabernet Sauvignon this year with a super-focused feel and plenty of ripe currant and blackberry fruit. Luxury Cab for much less than you’d expect.

We’ll have some treats from the cheese case out for you to sample with the wines and best 6/12 bottle savings prices available on a mix/match basis during the tastings. Come on by and let us wish you a very happy Memorial Day!
