We hope you can join us on Thursday May 26th as we welcome MFW Wine Company for our latest in-store tasting. Between 6pm and 8pm (though we often go a little later) we will be pouring three delicious and unique offerings from the MFW portfolio: a crisp biodynamic rose from Beaujolais, a bargain of a red blend from Italy, and a unique, textural Portuguese white that really impressed us. Each is also a brand-new arrival into the store - which will make this week's tasting especially informative. Pop in, say hello, and check out these tasty offerings! Bernard Vallette - La Rose Gorge VDF 2021 100% Gamay from Beaujolais VDF. Crisp, refreshing, and easy-to-drink, what else do you need in...

May 19: Three Stunning Wines from Grand Cru Selections! 6pm-8pm

While we are always excited for our weekly in-store tastings, this particular line-up is truly something special. Grand Cru Selections have been bringing us some amazing wines recently (we even featured two of these bottles as part of a recent wine club), and no better introduction to their outstanding portfolio than with this trio: a fun & festive rose Pet Nat from Italy along with superb Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara County. Each has not only been a hit with the customers, but the shop staff have also been scooping up these wines - so you know we really love them! Please join us on Thursday May 19th between 6pm and 8pm (though we typically keep the tasting...

May 12: An Evening with Skin Contact Wines & Bodega Altolandon (Three Unique Bottles from the Same Producer!)

Join us on Thursday May 12th for this very special tasting with three unique and organic wines from a single producer - Spain's Bodega Altolandon. 6pm-8pm While our tastings usually feature three distinct producers, it can also be enlightening to focus on just one winemaker and highlight smaller differences between multiple wines coming from the same terroir. No better producer to show in this light than Manchuela, Spain's Bodega Altolandon - who craft beautiful, unique, and approachable wines in a number of styles. First off, we will be pouring two different skin-contact white wines (both made in clay amphora) that have been favorites at the shop for some time now. The "Enblanco" is a blend of Grenache Blanc & Grenache...

Welcoming May with David Bowler Wines & a Trio from the Old World (THU. MAY 5th)

Wow what a way to embrace the warmer weather! You won't want to miss this line-up as we welcome David Bowler Wines into the shop on May 5th with three amazing wines from their impressive portfolio. We begin with a fun, fresh, refreshing white (that has a lovely dash of effervescence) from France before moving to a truly impressive pair of bottles from Spain: a unique, fuller bodied white blend from Anna Espelt, and an iconic Rioja from none other than Lopez de Heredia. Oh, and it's also pretty cool that each of these amazing bottles comes from a female winemaker, which we support in the shop at all times. Mark the calendar and pop in between 6pm and 8pm...

Join us April 28th: Jenny & Francois Present Three New Arrivals to the Shop!

We hope to see you on Thursday April 28th for our in-store tasting with Jenny & Francois. Between 6 and 8 pm (though we usually keep the tasting going a little later!) we will be pouring three excellent bottles from their portfolio, each is unique, delicious, and very reasonably priced for the quality on display. To start things off we have a very cool Pet Nat from Alsace that has been selling fast since landing in our coolers a few weeks ago. Then we have two reds who could not be more different from one another, so it will be a great opportunity to experience the diverging styles of Old World vs New World. Les Vins Pirouettes - Le Pet...
