Try Three For Free Wine Tasting this Saturday, January 30th from 2:00 to 5:00 featuring some easy drinking Mediterranean wines – The vine has been cultivated for centuries in countries that border the Mediterranean. The warm and sunny climate of the Mediterranean provides perfect conditions for the cultivation of a number of grapes, and the resulting wines tend to share some similarities. These are bold, spicy, herb accented wines that mimic the flavors of the surrounding landscape, and they represent some of the best wine values in the world. We’ll focus on Mediterranean wines of Southern France and Italy for this tasting and you are invited to stop by, taste, learn and save up to 20% off on some of our favorites.
