So what is a wine flight? A flight is basically a step-up from a wine tasting. In a flight you’ll get about a half glass (rather than just a “taste”) of three different wines (so about a glass and a half total). The idea is to have fun trying three different wines that all have something in common (the grape varietal, the region or country the wines are from, the style, you name it). Some examples of a flight are “International Malbecs” or “California Chardonnays.” Our flights will include some wines we wouldn’t normally pour at our Saturday tasting. This is a great way to try those wines before you buy a whole bottle, or just an excuse to come in and have a glass of wine with friends.
This is a great opportunity to come in and try our huge selection of everyday values. Generally, these wines will retail for less than $15.00 a bottle. The bonus – you get 5% off on any purchase of the wines at our tasting. So come in and find your new favorite everyday wine.
The Third Thursday of each month we typically have what is called a “palate tasting.” Sounds fancy? It’s just the opposite; these are a blast!!! We pour you and a group of about 60 people around nine different wines to taste. We will have some catered appetizers designed to pair specifically with the wines. We’ve had a palate tasting with Chateau St. Michelle, Steele Winery and Domaine Chandon to name a few. We’ve done Italian wine tastings, Port wine tastings, Champagne tastings, the list goes on.
One night a month in the shop we have live entertainment. There have been jazz vocalists, acoustic guitar players, jazz combos, blues, bluegrass…you get the idea. We have specials on wine by the glass (look for the special “premium pour”), and it’s always a lot of fun.
We do all this and so much more. Want to take a Wine 101 class? Wondering where to host that bachelorette party, office party or night out?
