Tis the season for Tasting

Crazy prohibitionist laws in this state mandate that we only get a certain amount of tastings a year. We put a hold on them for the summer, but we're having our first tasting of the season on Friday, October 3rd from 3pm to 7pm. The wine list hasn't been set up yet, but I promise it'll be worth it. (I mean, it's free so of course it's worth it.) We're thinking about doing them every Friday and Saturday for the rest of the year. Emails will be sent shortly.

2005 Flavium Mencia


From: Bierzo, Spain

Varietal: Mencia
