Wednesday, April 16
No Corkage!
Choose from 450 bottles in the shop & enjoy in the bar at the retail price! An outstanding choice from WA would be: Five Star Cellars 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon ~ "A burst of French oak aromas and spice with a hint of dried fruit on the nose. A bold wine that opens with dark, rich flavors. Hints of chocolate and black currant. This wine demands a good meal." And with no corkage, it would be <$8.50 a glass! Cheers!

Saturday Tasting, Apr 19
