Hello from Church St:
Well the temp doesn't show it much but we are into spring and the first sign is--no not a robin but new releases of rose wine. The 07's are trickling in and I hope and expect this to be the breakout year for these delightful wines. Colorful, easy, flavorful and with a touch of elegance, these wines have finally shaken the disastrous comparison to white zin. Similar in color only, the French, Italian and Spanish versions are wonderful examples of no nonsense, relax and enjoy spring wines of varying grapes and shades. Some with beautiful spice, wild strawberry, mineral, herbs or a combination, but all (ones we buy) with gentle acidity and firm finish. Backyard barbecue, fish on the grill, summer salad, or just while watching the boats go by these are very adaptable and versatile. If your not a believer, come and sample some next Tues. and see for yourself. The ultimate summer wine.
The 5th of April, Saturday at 4-6pm we will be hosting a Ca. winery, Cameron Hughes, at our shop. Cameron Hughes is a fairly new negociant who buys grapes from top growers and bottles under his name. His Napa Cabernet's and Chardonnay are excellent values and you can sample here before you buy. Hosted by Stephanie Restuccio of Cameron Hughes.
New summer hours are --Tues., Wed., Thurs., 12:00-8:00. Fri., Sat., 12:00-9:00. Sun. 1:00-5:00.
