Our $2 Saturday Tastings are back.
All courtesy of that fine looking $2,600 sink which will now proudly grace our Tasting area. Feel free to ask to use it if you so desire ;)
On Sat June 17th, after 4 months without them, we will be resuming our
Saturday Wine Tastings from 2-4pm*
To celebrate, this first Tasting will start with a full glass of Bubbly before we pour four other wines for you to enjoy.
So, please come join us on the 17th or another Saturday from 2-4:30pm*
Every 1st and 3rd Saturday of the month will be a full tasting of a variety of wines.
Other Saturdays we will feature either one or two wines for you to enjoy for your $2.

See you soon!
* Following Saturdays will be 2-4pm
- the tables, barrels benches, etc. will be put away at 4:30pm
