Looking For Something Fun To Do This Week?
How about tasting some amazing wines? This Thursday, the 26th, we're holding a wine seminar at our Plank road store. For those of you who have never been, these seminars are basically wine tasting events where we invite a guest speaker to talk about the wines and the wineries that produce them. This week we have Nicolas Maestre, who heads Williams Corner Wine, a distributor based in Charlottesville. It is no exaggeration to say that the line-up of eight wines we have for this seminar is overall the best selection of any seminar we've had to date. These are wines you would never normally see open for a tasting. The star of the show is a $70 Barbaresco - a type of Italian red aged for 5 years in oak barrels. I've tasted it and it's amazing. If you're a wine novice don't be intimidated - you don't need extensive wine knowledge to enjoy the seminar. But even if you fancy yourself an educated wine consumer I think you will find these wines quite different from what you've tried before.
We've done these seminars for a while and every time people tell us how much they enjoyed it. If you want to see the full line-up of wines and a bit more information, click here. The seminar starts at 7pm and goes until about 8:30. Cost is $25 per person.
