AUSSIE RULES: Non-Foolish Fool's Day Wines

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

Aussie Rules.jpgThis is not a joke. Aaron Meeker from Vine Street Imports will be pouring some of the best of the new school Aussies wines making their way to us from the land Down Under. We haven't sorted out the details, but there will likely be wines from Jauma, Lucy Margaux, maybe a little Ochota Barrels, and whatever else strikes our fancy. If you think Australian wines are all big, brash, critter label wines, then come by and be surprised.

Going Green; Doc's Absinthe

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

march-april-02.jpgMarch--it's the start of the long awaited spring. Spring means green. Green means absinthe! Or at least, at the store, it does.

Did you know that there is an absinthe maker within the five burroughs? Well, there is and we are bringing Kevin of Doc's in to regale you with stores of its colored past as he pours a refreshing absinthe spritzer. You know you want some.

Hallucinations not guaranteed.

5.00 PM - 7.30 PM

Rose bucket.jpgThe aircon just had its seasonal check up. The snow seems to have receded for good. And we're even seeing the occasional daily forecast that starts with the number "7." Which means it's time for the first of our seasonal rose-fests. It may technically be a little early for this, but it's been a long, cold winter and we are READY! And there are more roses than ever available this year, including some 2013s still kicking around that offer excellent value for wines that are tasting even better than they did last summer. (Better wine for less money? We would be silly to refuse.) 

We'll open nearly every bottle of our early arrivals. If you don't find one you like, then you can honestly say "you don't like rose."

And as usual during our Rose Madness tastings, we offer our stock-up discounts day-of only: 10% on any 6 bottles of rose or 15% on a mix/match 12 bottle case. And we deliver! (NOTE: You don't have to take the wine with you day-of, you just need to pay for it.)

The Winemakers are Coming: Winner Winner, Sippin' Binner

6.00 PM - 7.30 PM

We heard Christian Binner was in town so we snagged him for a last minute in-store tasting. (Once again, dear David was bumped from his slot by a visiting winemaker. But as he said, he would bump himself for Binner!) come by to meet the man and talk about natural winemaking in Alsace.

(Note the 6PM start time. We're hoping he's here by 5.30PM, but winemakers tend to run late. Busy busy busy!)

Apr 17

The Winemakers are Coming: Kristopher Tillery of Noble Hill

5.30 PM - 7.30 PM

It's been too long since his last tasting, so we are very excited to have Kristopher back in the shop, pouring his South African wines. It's always a party when he's in the shop. And he's a good one to talk to about the business behind the "glamorous" wine world, thanks to an MBA from the school up in Cambridge. Come by to taste, to talk, or better yet, do both. A brainy - and tasty - way to spend your Friday.
