thurs7A Celebration of Cali Cabernet! | Thursday, November 7 | 6:30 to 8pm | $25
Who doesn’t love Cabernet Sauvignon? Admit it – it’s simply irresistible, staining the glass and redolent with black raspberry fruit, graphite, chocolate & cedar scents, with a texture that’s dense, lush and snappy, leading into deep, dark flavors.  Sound good??  Tonight we’ll discover what’s new in California Cabernet through the 2016 and just-released 2017 vintages, all from today’s classic appellations of Napa Valley, Alexander Valley, Knight’s Valley and Paso Robles.  We’ve got too many options to sift through!  But you may taste … Round Pond, Daou, Beringer, Sequoia Grove, Waterstone, Frank Family, Stag’s Leap Winery, Chappellet, Dunn Howell Mtn., Heitz ‘Linda Falls’ (first commercial release!) and Trig Point.  Purchase tickets online.


thurs21What Goes with Turkey & Family? | Thursday, November 21 | 6:30 to 8pm | $20
The Thanksgiving table brings everyone together, to break bread, revel in (or tolerate…) each other’s company, and raise a glass – whether they’re a wine aficionado or not.  The meal itself is both savory and sweet (marshmallow, yams, cranberry…).  So – how to bridge practiced palates and newbie tasters with wines that are both intriguing and delicious?  We’re presenting a very diverse array, full of pure fruit tones (good for the sweet foods) but with complex terroir tones and satisfying complexity.  You can look forward to floral Aussie Viognier, crisp white Bordeaux, unctuous Alsace white wine, estate Vouvray sec, benchmark Cru Beaujolais, subtle Oregon Pinot Noir, sophisticated white Burgundy, fine Côtes du Rhône, spicy Old Vine Zin, ripe Ripasso from the Veneto, and more.  Maybe a glorious Michigan mead! Please join us to discover new favorites to share happily with the family. Purchase tickets online.
