Try Three For Free Wine Tasting – Great examples of old vine wines!!! Saturday, January 9th from 2-5 p.m. – “Old Vines” is a common wine buzzword, but it doesn’t always mean that much. There is no official regulation for this term and many bulk producers use it rather “loosely.” At Table Wine, we dig a little deeper and make sure that the wines we stock that carry this designation actually contain grapes from older vineyards. As vines age, yields decrease and the finished wines gain more depth and complexity of flavor. Join us for a free wine tasting where you’ll get to sample some top old vine wines. Stop by, taste, learn and save up to 20% off on all of the featured tasting wines.
All of the featured tasting wines are on sale the day of the tasting: take 10% off if you mix any 3, 15% off if you mix any 6, or 20% off if you mix any 12.

Crafted by the talented Jean-Marc Lafage, the wine is a blend of 100+ year old Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Roussanne from the sun drenched vineyards of Southern France.
