It’s officially February! A month of chocolate, wine, skiing, and groundhogs day (I really hope he sees his shadow tomorrow!). We have a bunch great tastings coming up this week and for the rest of the month for you to look forward to.
This Wednesday we will have Boyd & Blair Vodka in the store for a private vodka tasting. Barry Young, co-owner and Still Master of Pennsylvania Pure Distilleries will be showing his new high-end vodka, Boyd & Blair. This is an artisan Potato Vodka that is distilled from an original mash using only locally grown potatoes. During the tasting we will have demonstrations on cocktail mixing and infusing vodka at home with ingredients like fruits, herbs, coffee, etc. There are still some seats left for this tasting and it is sure to be an incredible unique and exciting experience. The tasting is free and will be from 6:30-8:30 pm on Wednesday, February 3, reservations are required. Call the store to reserve your seats today!
On Friday of this week we will be welcoming back a former Georgetown employee, Paul Clear, who will be showcasing a new Spanish wine. In 2009 Paul started his importing company, Terroir Wine Cellars, and is making big strides to build a thriving importing company. This is one of the first wines in his portfolio, so this tasting will provide you the experience of tasting a wine that is just now hitting American soil! The wine is Palarea 2005 Tierra de Castilla and is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. We will have the opportunity to taste this wine with Paul as he discusses the winery, terroir, and his future plans with his importing business. The tasting will be on Friday, February 5th from 4-7pm at the Tasting Bar. Don’t miss out on your chance to taste this brand new Spanish import!
For all of you who have been visiting Stephanie at the tasting bar, Thank You! I hope you are enjoying the wines, and if you have any requests, please do not hesitate to ask. This week we will taste Cabernet Sauvignon from different world wine regions. Stephanie will have these wines open at the Bar Thursday from 4-7pm and Saturday from 2-5pm (the wines will not be available on Friday due to the Paul Clear Tasting).
Also on Saturday there will be a Bully Hill Tasting from 1-4 pm. Stop by and taste these very popular New York State Wines.
