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.
Saturday Wine Tastings
Each Saturday at 2:00 pm, we open four different wines and talk about them- where they come from, who makes them, and what makes them special. A couple of light hors d’oeuvres accompany the tasting and those who attend are eligible for discounts on the wines. Reservations are required, and web and email reservations will not guarantee you a seat, to please make your reservation by calling (520) 326-9363
Past Saturday Wine Tasting
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.
You may or may not be aware that Sicily is on the same parallel that we are, and its grasslands are peppered with cacti—if you cropped a photo to exclude the shoreline and the volcano, you might think you were looking at Sonoita. This week we'll be opening four treats from our sister Island, two reds and two whites, and you'll undoubtedly discover that even across the world, we're not that different after all.
While most of us regard Grenache as having its figurative and literal roots in France, not everyone realizes that Garnacha can be found scattered across Spain as well, and it turns out that Spanish Garnachas are delicious.

This Saturday, the low temperature will be 74°, and while it’s meant to top out at 98°, at least it’s a sign of good things to come. As our temperatures drift gently downward here in the Old Pueblo, our thoughts have begun to turn to autumnal wines, and, as such, Kevin will be pulling corks this Saturday on Zinfandels
We all know it: Italian whites are different from French whites are different domestic whites.
Now that we finally have a few cloudbursts under our belts, it may actually be okay to start remembering red wine again, even though summer is by no means over.
While we all swelter here in desperate hopes of a few drops of rain, it’s winter elsewhere. Most notably in Chile, where this week’s wine tasting plants its feet.
People seem to feel one way or another about a big oaky Chardonnay- some live for it, others dread it- but the fact of the matter is, oak is not an all-or-nothing proposition. This Saturday at 2:00, you can taste four Chardonnays from four different places, and each of them with a slightly different oak treatment.
