FEATURED WINES
Wines you didn't know were cool (staff selections):
Emily's Pick:
Weingut Fuerst, Elbling (2016)

A cousin to Riesling, Elbling is a grape that is indigenous to the Mosel. It's refreshing as the day is long, with green apple, a zesty lime zing, and a slight effervescence. It's not sweet--7g/L of residual sugar leaves it dry-off dry. Bonus: it's a liter. 

Patti's Pick:
Movia, Pinot Grigio (2014)

I first came across this sexy little Slovenian pinot grigio on the wine list over at Spoon and Stable and I was so enamored of it I knew we had to have it on our shelves to share with our customers. This is unlike the typical pinot grigio you'll encounter. Technically it qualifies as an " orange wine. " It has loads going on in terms of depth of flavor, texture and complexity. Which makes sense because it was first macerated on it's skins and then aged on it's lees in oak. Honey and peaches for me with some floral notes on the nose. Give it a second, third, maybe even fourth take - it will continue to evolve and the finish keeps on giving. After that - quit thinking and just enjoy.

Madison's Pick:
Domaine Maestracci,
Corse Calvi Clos Reginu (2016)

35% Niellucciu, 30% Grenache, 15% Sciaccarellu, 15% Syrah, 5% Mouvedre

Bright red fruit, wild herbs, pepper, a little spice and a little grit. This is a French wine with a strong Italian accent hailing from northwest Corsica on the granite Reginu plateau.
WHAT'S NEW
We added some great new spirits to our shelves including some hot new whiskies, sipping rums, and fancy tequilas. If you didn't make it out to our huge tasting in the basement there are a lot of new wines in the shop. Swing in because we'd love to show you some of our favorites!
FRIDAY & SATURDAY'S FREE WINE TASTINGS
We are still picking the wines for the free tastings on Friday (4-8pm) and Saturday (3-7pm), but there will be some fun wines in the lineup as well as a secret sipper!
