New Year's Eve isn't the only time to drink sparkling wine, but it sure is a lovely excuse! Come taste four sparkling wines from four different countries to drink now, or on New Year's Eve, or any time thereafter.
Every now and again, in an effort to help you make informed decisions, we taste the wines of a single importer we admire so that when you find a wine you're unfamiliar with, looking at that back label can help you choose a wine you can trust, even when you don't know the wine itself.
Thanksgiving food- ready for you to pick up with heating instructions on Wednesday, November 21
Sure, everyone's got advice on what to drink with Thanksgiving dinner. But who can clue you in on the fun things to consider AFTERWARD?

We usually relegate our wine tastings to the last Sunday of the month, and once in a while, a winemaker or an importer trots through Tucson and we’re lucky enough to pick that person’s brain in the fleeting moments they’re here in town. This one will have healthy pours and small plates.
While it may be a drizzly week, we Tucsonans know that Rosé weather lasts well into October, and it really doesn't even hurt to have some around come Thanksgiving.

In addition to our Saturday wine tastings, we step it up on the last Sunday of each month and host a tasting of six wines, some a little fancier than others, and offer food pairings alongside the wines. This month we’re joined by our old friend Dylan Higgins.

As purveyors of wine, we taste a lot them, and we've noticed a discrepancy: the wines we love aren't necessarily the wines that people buy. Sometimes it's the price. Sometimes it's the label. But we've noticed a nearly certain deal-killer, and this week, we're here to right that wrong.
Ciao, ragazzi. Last week featured a bunch of delicious Sicilian wines, and this week, we head to the mainland. If you're sitting around the house wondering what to drink with your pasta and red sauce or those roasted meats and sausages you're planning on serving, this tasting is worthy of your consideration.
