Wine Tastings 11/29 – 12/2

Hi Wine Explorers!

We have a great lineup of wines on the barrel this week!

Thursday from 3-6pm, Nikki will take you on a tour of Australia, with five wines from five different regions:

  • From McLaren Vale, Wirra Wirra’s “Scrubby Rise” Red and White shows off the incredible values that Australia can produce
  • From the Barossa Valley, Langmeil’s “Three Gardens” is a Rhone-styled blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mouvedre.  Langmeil is famed for having the oldest Shiraz vines on the planet!
  • Clare Valley’s Jim Barry produces a Cabernet/Shiraz blend called Barry Brothers that’s a must-try!
  • And finally, Yalumba makes some of the best-value Viognier on the planet!

Friday from 3-6pm, let Lauren guide you through five wines from five countries:

  • South Africa’s DeWetshof “Limestone Hill” Chardonnay is a pure, unoaked wine that’s become a customer favorite!
  • Little James Basket Press is a delicious Cote du Rhone from the famed St Cosme winery
  • Castello di Bossi’s Chianti Chianti Classico is a long-time favorite of ours (as well as the critics, as this vintage was rated 93 points!)
  • Paso Robles’ Ancient Peaks “Renegade” is a deep, rich and wonderful blend of Syrah, Petite SIrah, Zinfandel and Petite Verdot
  • Finally, Santa Julia Malbec from Argentina is a fantastic example of why Malbecs are so popular right now!

And on Saturday and Sunday Anne and Michael will be pouring a “sneak peek” of our Top 10 wines for the holidays; coming soon to a newspaper near you!

See you in the store!


Yes, there really are kangaroos in the vineyards in Australia!
