Those of you who’ve been getting these emails or attending our wine tastings for a while will know that we do our best to remind you periodically that when one is faced with a mysterious bottle of wine about which one knows nothing, one must turn the bottle around and investigate who it is that imports what’s inside it. More often than not, knowing you trust the importer can be as comforting as having tasted the wine itself. Join us this Sunday, July 29th at 3:30 pm for another in our Trust Your Importer wine tasting series: Kobrand . Kelly Boyle of Kobrand will be here himself, in person, to tell us all about these exceptional wines.. As usual, the cost is $25, which includes not only the wines listed below, but a snack paired with each one. Call 326-9363 to hold your spot.
