We are hosting a tasting Thursday August 23rd at the store featuring wines from one of our favorite importers, Peter Weygandt. We’re a long-time fan as Peter Weygandt has a nose like the bovine finding the hidden truffles. He ferrets out really good wines – often at exceptionally reasonable prices.
Reservations must be made in advance. The Tasting is from 5:00-7:00 p.m. and is $25 per person. The format is a “walk around” tasting so that you may taste all or just some of the wines, and come and go as your schedule permits. We will be available to discuss each wine, and answer questions.
I hope you can join us as this is a wonderful opportunity to taste 23 selections. You’ll find new wines for everyday and for special occasions ranging in prices from $15 to $45. Most of the wines are our long time favorite selections, but there are new vintages, and some new producers that we have added this year.
