This summer has been full of great weather, cookouts, and wine, and our "Summer in Rioja" promotion has played its part well. We want to celebrate these special wines one last time, and there's no better way than with wine, food, and friends!


Tomorrow night from 5:30-7:30, we're throwing a "Summer in Rioja" Send-Off Party. We've picked four of our favorite Rioja wines to taste, and our friends at Taberna de Haro will be providing some authentic tapas to pair. We're big believers in great wine deserving great food, a philosophy that Taberna's chef-owner Deborah Hansen shares with us wholeheartedly.


As if wine and food aren't good enough, we'll have some great offers during the event, including a Rioja Summer Send-Off Six Pack ($75), cork puller giveaways, and a raffle of the items in our Rioja window display (including a new Weber grill). It's a great chance to stock up for Labor Day cookouts, and one lucky winner will even have something new to cook on!


Read more about the food, wine, and raffle below. Give me a call at 617.262.0363 or reply to this email to reserve your six-pack for pick-up or delivery. Even better, come join us tomorrow night, enter the raffle, and try the wines and food for yourself!

wines"Summer in Rioja" Send-Off Tasting Wines
Our four favorite Riojas for the end of summer!
Campo Viejo Brut Rose Cava
Reg. Price: $14.99, Sale Price: $11.99

Tasting notes: This deep pink rose of Trepat is made in the traditional method by one of Rioja's most well-known producers. The wine is full of vibrant berry aromas and flavors, pink peppercorn spice, and a long dry finish. Serious and satisfying!

2013 Ostatu Blanco
Reg. Price: $16.99, Sale Price: $14.99

Tasting notes: This Blanco exemplifies the best qualities of white Rioja. A blend of Viura and Malvasia fermented on the lees in stainless steel leaves a crisp, floral, and herbaceous wine with lively acidity. A big-time refresher in this lingering summer heat.

2005 Lopez de Haro Reserva
Reg. Price: $16.99, Sale Price: $14.99

Tasting notes: We tasted this wine at the Rioja Grand Tasting in NYC last May, and it blew us away. A classic Reserva Rioja with plum and blackberry, leather and earth, and a slightly toasty and 
dusty palate. Only in Spain will you find an elegant, nine-year-old wine for $15!

2008 Marques de Murrieta Reserva
Reg. Price: $27.99, Sale Price: $24.99

Tasting notes: From one of the benchmark producers in fine Rioja, this Reserva is well-defined and medium bodied. The palate shows crisp red fruit with notes of sage and orange rind. Enjoy now or hold for years to come!
