Summer Festival & Sunny Spanish Wines


Early Sale and Newbies in Time for the Season


This week I’m receiving my first delivery of some Holiday Pre-Sale items, and I’m passing the savings on to you. That’s right, it’s time to think about the wonderful wines you’ll be serving at your feasts and parties or gifting to your loved ones. We’ll start with two that are old standbys for feasts and fiestas:

Saint Hilaire Brut (Limoux, France) Regular Price $17.85/ Feature Price $15.17

Moving right along...

Cavicchioli 1928.jpg

There's no real theme for this week's Featured Wines, except that we're moving into the late summer/early autumn season here and leaning toward wines that go with hearty feasts and longer nights.

Cavicchioli Sparkling Wine (Modena, Italy) Regular Price $15.55/ Feature Price $13.22

Odds 'n Ends - And Great New Spanish Reds

I’m calling this Featured Tasting “Odds ‘n Ends” because there’s no unifying theme...just great wines at great prices that I want you to try. My real purpose this week is to introduce the new read on.

Venturini Baldini Reggiano Lambrusco Rosso Amabile (Reggio, Italy) Regular Price $12.20/ Feature Price $10.37

Back to (Wine) School - "Grapes & Styles"


This week is the first in my series of classes, Lovin’ the Grape: A Course in Wine Appreciation. The class is full, but I’m going to offer everyone a chance to sample some of the wines we’ll be using as course examples. The first class covers basic wine styles and six major grapes, so in this week’s Feature tasting, I’ll have a Chardonnay, a Sauvignon Blanc, a Riesling, a Merlot, a Pinot Noir and a Cabernet Sauvignon. These will be rounded out with the additional styles of: rosé, sparkling wine, and fortified wine.
