New Game: Summer Wine Trivia!
Every Tuesday this summer, we'll post questions in 3 categories. Correct answers will win you a $5 Happy Hour glass of wine (even if it's not Happy Hour!) & enter you to win an end of summer drawing for a $50 Portalis gift certificate for the wine bar! This week's questions:
Category 1 (Old World): This is the signature white grape from Austria. It can be light & refreshing as well as fuller-bodied, almost off-dry (sweeter in the middle with a nice acidic finish). What is the grape?
Category 2 (New World): What year were WA's first wine grapes planted?
Category 3 (Portalis): What day of the week is 'No Corkage Fee' at Portalis?
Please send answers to email@example.com or better yet, stop in for a glass of wine and submit your answers in person! Deadline for this week's questions is Monday. Cheers!
New Tasting Series: Name That Grape!
Our summer wine game is back! We'll have a different single varietal (in a bag to hide its identity) every Wednesday & Thursday through August. Stop by, take a taste, make a guess! If you're correct, you get one glass of wine at the Happy Hour price ($5), your pick! Game runs June thru end of August. Cheers!
