Saturday, August 26th from 2-5 pm – Our next Super Saturday Wine Tasting features an epic lineup of French and Spanish wines from importer Eric Solomon! Many of you know and love Eric’s selections — we’ll be breaking out some old favorites as well as some new finds. Just $5/person to sample 10 wines — free for Grape Nuts.
Charlotte-based importer Eric Solomon is one of the best in the business. His French and Spanish wines always garner high marks from The Wine Advocate as well as other trade periodicals (see below) — they are quite deserving of the praise. Join us for an extensive tasting guided by Mike Kolker and Peg Laurita of Freedom Beverage, the North Carolina distributor of Eric’s wines. They’ll pour you some incredible values along with some more “choice” selections from some of the warmer and sunnier parts of France and Spain. From crisp and aromatic Verdejo and Grenache Blanc to rich and spicy Monastrell, Grenache Rouge and Syrah, we’re bringing out some serious heat for this tasting.
For fans of lush, polished, and distinctive European wines, this is one of the best wine tastings of the summer. Prices range from $12 to $30+ on the wines — there’s something for every palate and every budget! Check out the lineup below, and I think you’ll agree that this is an impressive lineup. And at just $5 to try all 10 wines, it’s a great deal! Oh yeah, all of the tasting wines will be aggressively discounted. Stop by, taste, learn, stock up and save big on a bunch of awesome wines. No RSVP is required – all you have to do is stop by, grab a glass and a tasting/sales sheet, and have a good time.
Save big on all of the tasting wines! Mix any 3 of them and save 10%, mix any 6 and save 15%, or mix any 12 and save 20%!
