Saturday, May 6 from 2-5pm – Join us to sample some great warm weather wines ideal for the spring and summer seasons. Taste a white, a dry rosé, and a medium bodied red handpicked by Team Table Wine for your drinking pleasure!
There’s something about the spring that is just magical. The flowers and trees are in full bloom, the landscape is green and full of life, and my wine preferences shift. I tend to move from heavier, heartier foods and wines to fresher and livelier selections as the temperatures rise. If you agree, stop by the store and let me share some of my favorite warm weather wines with you! Up first, it’s a brand new Pinot Grigio from Argentina. This one is rounder and more aromatic than most Pinot Grigio’s in this price range. I think it would be great for sipping by the pool or on the beach or with richer seafood dishes. Up next, it’s a new arrival dry rosé from Provence, and it’s a good one. Flowing with gentle red fruits, ripe citrus, and mineral, I could drink this one liberally with any sort of grilled fish and/or vegetables. To finish, it’s the new vintage of Barbera from Italy’s famed Vallana estate. I love the purity and honesty of this medium bodied, slightly rustic red from one of the Piemonte’s greatest producers. Enjoy it with just about any sort of meat off the grill. I’ve done it again — writing up these tastings always makes me hungry! Stop by on Saturday, taste, learn, and save big on all of the featured tasting wines. Can’t make it by, but want to place an order? Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

1. 2016 Vina Las Perdices Pinot Grigio (Mendoza, Argentina) – I’m always looking for good Pinot Grigio as it remains a go-to for many Table Wine customers. I tasted this one recently with one of our favorite wine reps, and it floored me. From Agrelo, a small village just south of Mendoza, this one bursts out of the glass with aromas of ripe citrus and white flowers. Bring on the grilled salmon and green veggies!
2. 2016 Les Hauts Plateaux Provence Rosé (Provence, France) – Talk about a great find in value priced, true Provencal rosé — this is it! A blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Cinsault, I could drink this for hours on my back porch while reading, hanging with friends, or eating. It’s just plain good.
3. 2014 Vallana Barbera (Piemonte, Italy) – Wine Spectator called Vallana one of the top 100 estates on the planet! I’ll go with that, and I invite you to see what you think about their lowest priced wine. 100% Barbera flowing with honest, authentic, and traditional flavors of tart berry fruit, earth and spice, this has me dreaming about grilled lamb chops.
