We like our Syrah around here. Truly, we’re fond of all the Rhône varietals. So this week, we have a particularly delightful bargain for the Saturday tasting. It’s a mite pricier than our usual $10 tasting, but it’s still a great value because the wines are disproportionately more expensive than usual. These are all wines that we’ve gotten on one deal or another, so they’re all on sale, but they normally go for significantly more than our usual fare. The tasting begins at 2:00 this Saturday, August 22nd, and costs $15 this week rather than the customary ten, but all the other rules still apply: no web or email reservations, please, so call us at 326-9363 if you’d like us to hold a spot for you.
