Casual tastings every Saturday 3:00 to 5:00
We have a slightly new format at the wine tastings. We will now be charging $5 (or so) per person for our tastings, but with this new charge comes some new flexibility. Come in, try our selections, and maybe get a half glass or so of your favorite while hanging out with friends. We'll keep it under a reasonable 9oz total (at most), but how we dispense that is now up to you. Do you want to taste each of our four wines twice? No problem. Do you just want a three ounce pour of your favorite? No problem. As long as we keep it under 9oz total for the event, you can have it your way.
Saturday February 25th: Decadence- that's what today's tasting is all about. With Mardi Gras only three days away, we thought it would be fun to pull out the stops and pour the richest combo of wines we could wrangle, in case you were considering cutting back for Lent. France brings us both whites today, with a delicious Riesling from Rolly-Gassmann out of the Loire, and a layered Chardonnay from Domaine du Prieuré's Sauvigny Les Beaune selection. Australia's Southpaw sweethearts, Sara and Sparky Marquis, crafted both of our reds, the Mollydooker 2 Left Feet Shiraz/Cab and total knockout The Boxer Shiraz. Their rich, intense style of winemaking is well known to many of you, and perfect examples of wine for wine's sake. We'll even have something spicy and wild for a sweet finish, a new liqueur made in Florida, from Mexican Agave spirits, infused with ginger and serano peppers, and a little cane sugar, called Spider Monkey. So, if you can't make it to New Orleans, join us for a rich/wild/spicy flurry of flavors. Laissez les bon temps rouler!
Don't let the new format deter you: it's still us, still bringing you some of the best wines out there, only now we're putting you more in control. We'll see you at the table.
