Weekend Wine Tasting 'Vinos de Gran Valor'
When seeking wines that over deliver, sometimes setting our sights on a far away vantage point is the way to go. Much like finding designer jeans at a garage sale, sometimes we find age-worthy, beautifully balanced wines for pennies on the dollar. That is exactly what we intend to share with you this Saturday and Sunday. This weekend’s line up showcases exceptionally made wines from esteemed producers that are also surprisingly soft on the pocketbook. We bring you Spain, in its most affordable glory, a treasure chest of classic flavors that are both mouthwatering and food-friendly. We are proud of our findings and like most treasure hunters, cannot wait to capture your mutual delight.     2015 Bodegas Godeval Godello Valdeorras, Spain 2016 Muga Rose Rioja, Spain 2013 Ercavio 'Tempranillo Roble' Castillo, Spain 2014 Mustiguillo Mestizaje Bobal El Terrerazo, Spain
Fri Nite Tasting 'Azienda Vinicola Malaspina' with Patrizia Malaspina
Azienda Vinicola Malaspina is located on the furthest tip of Calabria, a proud, wild and fascinating region. Calabria is a region of a thousand faces, its hills descend to the sea happily providing its scents and flavors.  It is in this context that the vineyards of Malaspina are located. The winery began in 1967, when Consolato Malaspina’ s interest in wine-making became a passion and, subsequently, his future. Since then he has been dedicating his life to produce  quality wines.Consolato has been able to transmit his love for the land and the wine world to his four daughters, Domenica, Caterina, Irene and Patrizia, who are committed to continue the hundreds-of-years-old traditions that are a part and parcel of Calabria. ________________________________ 2015 Malaspina 'Micah' Greco Bianco ___________________________   2013 Malaspina 'Palikos' Gaglioppo/Calabrese ________________________________ 2013 Malaspina 'Palizzi' Calabrese Nero/Nocera __________________________________ 2013 Malaspina 'Pellaro' Nerello Cappuccio/Nocera  _____________________________ 2012 Malaspina 'Patros Pietro' Magliocco
