Spring is the time when the mustard flowers yellow in the vineyards and wineries - needing to move last year's vintage to make room for this years - release their wines.
Spring is a great time to visit wine country. Vines are just putting forth new shoots, and there is some bustle in the winery as last years vintages move from tanks to barrels and barrels to bottles. Winemakers are usually in the winery but still have some free time - when you visit, you will probably find the team there willing to chat.
For us, we are taking advantage of the new releases to try a few fresh bottles. These three bottles will help you bridge the gap between the cool days behind and the hot days ahead.
In April, we will be offering limited in store tastings on alternate weeks with our virtual tastings. These wines will be featured in our virtual tasting April 6 and again during this new in-store seated format. If you would prefer the virtual experience, please purchase Spring Fling as a Virtual Wine Tasting - Apr 9.
Our new seated format is more restaurant style - not the same as our old seated tastings. We are still focused on safety and will be following "restaurant rules" during this event - masks required except while seated. Your group will be seated at your own table with 3oz pours of the three featured wines plus a fourth pour of the nights mystery bonus wine and an individual cheese plate (with bread and savories). We will discuss the wines briefly to give you time to enjoy the tasting at your table.
Prices for this event are $40 per person and sold by the table (2 person or 4 person). Your table will be yours for the evening, and after the tasting wines will be available to purchase by the glass or bottle.
Purchase your ticket online and select In-Store Pickup to reserve your table.
Here are the wines:
|Henri Bourgeois Sancerre 'Les Baronnes'||Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva||Caymus-Suisun Grand Durif|
If you haven't tried one of our virtual tastings, here is how it works. We live stream the event on our Facebook Live page Friday at 7pm. You don't have to buy the wines to join, anyone can watch for free - but it is more fun to buy the tasting kit and taste along. If you would like to check one out, watch one of the replays of a past event.
We are offering this tasting pack for a special deal - order online and you can pickup, have it delivered, or we will ship it to you!
On Friday, join us on our Facebook page at 7PM and we will have a chat. If you miss it, you can watch the replay!
