We now have FREE WINE TASTINGS DAILY! We previously were doing a $5 daily tasting, as well as a free tasting on Saturdays, and more recently, Wednesdays as well as part of our ‘Demonstration Days at SoGourmet’. We will still continue to feature wine, cheese, and specialty foods on our Demonstration Days, but in addition, we will now have a Featured White and Featured Red EVERY day to taste, anytime from 11am to close. Starting next month, we will we also adding a “Business After Hours” type public wine tasting on Tuesday evenings, that will be a full-blown weekly event with 4-6 different wines to sample at no charge. Stay tuned for more details….
Now, on to the Featured Wines of the Week!
Featured White: 2013 Calera Chardonnay: light peach, starfruit, meyer lemon notes, touch of oak but still a cleaner, crisper style rather than typical California chardonnay.
Featured Red: is actually a Rosé! 2015 Domaine Tournon ‘Mathilda’ Rosé: made from Shiraz(Syrah), this is a beautiful example from the acclaimed Rhone producer Michel Chapoutier (Rhone Valley being known for the same grape, Syrah). It’s light pink hue sparkles in the glass, with rose petal notes on the nose.
