Two Magnificent Sancerre and A Trio of House Wine Candidates – Free Weekend Tastings Friday (3-7pm) and Saturday (noon-4pm)

Quite a line-up on the tasting table this week!  With the weather finally (and for good?) warming it’s time to load up your wine rack with great value, fun to drink and share, wines you can pop open whenever the mood strikes and whatever food is on the table.  So three of our tasting wines this weekend fit in the “House Wine” category – wines you’ll want to take home by the case and have ready to enjoy every day.  And, because some days are more special than others, we’ll also be showcasing two simply brilliant Sancerre, one a classic Sauvignon Blanc, the other a remarkable Pinot Noir.

Join us from 3-7pm on Friday and noon-4pm on Saturday to sample:

Usoa de Bagordi Rioja Rosado Organic 2017 – What a delightful charmer of a Spanish Rosado (rosé in France) made from 100% Garnacha.  Loaded with watermelon and peach fruit and creamy in texture, this finishes zesty, fresh and clean.

Campet Ste Marie Chardonnay Pays d'Oc France 2015 – This charming, partially barrel aged, Chardonnay from the cool hills of Limoux in the Languedoc is destined to become your go-to Spring/Summer Chard of choice.  From $9.98.

Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Cote de Marloup 2014 – We could blather on about the concrete egg, zesty fruit, deep minerality, and round and silky texture.  But consider this:  white truffle.  Yum!

Dom Bernard Fleuriet Sancerre Rouge Anthocyane 2015 – If Burgundy’s Jean-Michel Guillon made Pinot Noir from Sancerre, this is what it would be like.  Shatters all expectations for Sancerre rouge.

Tussock Jumper Malbec Tulum Valley 2016 – More to Argentina than Mendoza!  From the warmer, lower altitude, Tulum Valley near San Juan, this Malbec delivers loads of fruit, a touch of oak, and fantastic cook-out and back-porch-sipping value at just 13.0% alcohol.  House red.

As always, we’ll have some nibbles from the cheese case out to enjoy with the wines and great, mix/match, savings prices on all five wines during the tasting.  Join us!
