Sizzlin' South America

Thursday, August 28
Argentina and Chile are rising star regions, each with their own set of perfectly adapted grapes. Malbec has chosen Argentina as its vacation home, while other Bordeaux varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Carmenere have selected Chile. With varying climates, soils, and altitudes come numerous different takes on the same grapes, and of course plenty of New World experimentation with oddballs like Torrontes, Bonarda, and Tannat. Come see what the Southern Hemisphere has to offer! Tickets are $19

Napa Valley Variations

Thursday, September 4
Considered one of the premier wine-growing regions in the world, Napa Valley is sometimes considered the "Garden of Eden" of viticulture, for reasons both geological and climatic. With investors flooding in from around the world, this region--and its various producers--crafts dark and ponderous Cabernet Sauvignon, light and fresh Sauvignon Blanc, rich and buttery Chardonnay, among numerous others. Come enjoy the biggest boom in California since the Gold Rush! Tickets are $29

Cape Classics

Thursday, September 11
Though this part of the world can claim a vineyard history dating back to 1659, it wasn't until the late '90s that this up-and-coming region was even considered part of the world wine palette. The growth of the past couple of decades is quite astounding, mostly thanks to some of the strictest wine laws known to the world, a true push for quality. From ubiquitous Chenin Blanc to Northern Rhone styled Syrah to the South African birthed grape known as Pinotage, New World variety is a hallmark of the Western Cape. Tickets are $19

Purebred Bordeaux

Thursday, September 18
Welcome to the homeland of some of the most famous international grapes on the wine scene: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Sauvignon Blanc just to name a few. This legendary region in southwest France is bisected by the Gironde Estuary, the gravelly soils of the "left bank" responsible for Cab based blends, the clay strewn "right bank" specializing in Merlot based wines. Not to mention rich, sweet Sauternes, the product of the "noble rot" (we'll explain...). Come see what all of the 100 point Wine Advocate scores are about! Tickets are $29

Autumn Delights

Thursday, September 25
Two words: Sweater Wines! The temperatures have finally begun to drop, the leaves are changing, and all you want is to be embraced by your wine selection. Sonoma Chardonnay wraps you up gently in a flannel blanket while sweet and nutty Vin Santo from Tuscany is like sitting in front of a warm fire. Join us as we enter the most beautiful of the seasons! Tickets are $19

New Arrival

2012 Lenne "LeNez" Pinot Noir, Yamhill-Carlton

$34.99/bottle or $349.90/case of 12

Soft and rich, the 2012 vintage in Oregon's Willamette Valley produced wines with generous fruit profiles and immediate accessibility. Deftly balanced, concentrated flavors of plum, black cherry, anise and mocha are beautifully woven together before pleasant mid-palate grip and a lingering, fine-grained tannic structure round things out.
