A New Approach….

Posted by on Sep 5, 2012 in Wine Blog | 0 comments

We are changing, in a substantive way, the way we will be presenting new wines to you, our customers. In past years, we have used “Grand Tastings”, events with upwards of 50 wines to present new product. While this afforded customers broad exposure to many products, it also limited the time available to learn about each wine. This fall, we plan to use a varied approach on a smaller scale, to hopefully, give you a more intimate look at the products in a much more relaxed setting. The tastings will feature between 10 and 20 different wines. Many of these events will take place on weeknights, Wednesday or Thursday, coordinated with the availability of our vendors and even our winemaking partners, as schedules allow. We will still sprinkle an occasional weekend afternoon event in, as well. We hope this will provide a more comfortable tasting environment for everyone.

We hope this new approach with less wines and educated pourers, will provide a better opportunity to both taste and learn about the wines.
