Tasting Bar Events

February 21, 2024 - Black Winemakers and Black-Owned Wineries

In honor of Black History Month, we're showcasing wines from black-owned wineries and/or made by black winemakers. These are excellent wines that we are proud to stock, but this is an opportune moment to remind you that there is an another good reason to care about them. We feel it is important to spotlight the work of these artisans to show that there is room in this industry for anyone who has a passion for wine. This tasting runs from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm; tickets are $15, and the wines are 10% off. Learn More...

February 22, 2024 - Blending Beers

Some may call it sacrilegious, but historically, it wasn't uncommon for beers to be blended to create interesting flavor profiles! If you go to a local brewery and ask the bartender what their favorite blend is, they usually will have a few different things in mind. This week, we'll be talking about some of our favorite beers for blending, some classic beer blends, and some styles that have historically been blended. Join us! This tasting is free and runs from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Learn More...

September 24, 2023 - Casey Hristakos of Salveto Imports

This week, we are delighted to turn the tasting bar over to Casey Hristakos of Salveto Imports for the first time.
