Tastings

Tasting: Els Iced Coffee

When: Friday May 31 5-7pm Feeling a little tired going into the weekend? We've got what you need this Friday - Ice Coffee with a Kick! Come on down and try some drinks we'll be mixing up with Els Iced Coffee before that long drive home.

Tasting: Beat the Heat Cocktails

When: Saturday June 1st 1-4pm We'll be mixing up some cool cocktails this Saturday. It's supposed to be in the high 80s and humid so take a break from mowing the yard, organizing the garage, or whatever you're doing and learn how to make some refreshing cocktails to help you beat that heat this summer. It's only going to get worse.

Tasting: Yee-Haw Beer

When: Friday June 7th 5-7pm Whether you’re an exacting aficionado of obscure flavors, styles and techniques or someone who simply savors a couple cold ones with friends, we bet you'll love Yee-Haw Beer. Born in Johnson City, TN this beer is considered locally brewed (being from TN) and often dispenses with fancy names (which we love) making it easy to find exactly what you want. Instead of sifting through beers named "seriously bad elf" or "mama's lil yella pils" (don't get us wrong we love those beers), you can just pick up a Yee-Haw Kolsch or Yee-Haw IPA. Simple. Like good beer should be.

Tasting: Uncle Val’s Gin

When: Saturday June 8th 1-4pm Uncle Val’s is a small-batch botanical gin inspired by Zio Valerio’s love of gardening and native tuscan cuisine. The botanicals are not only Uncle Val’s favorite cooking ingredients, but also happen to make an exceptionally unique and smoothly delicious gin.

Tasting: McManis Wines

When: Friday June 14th 5-7pm Surrounded by lush vineyards, the McManis Family Vineyards winery is located on a 40-acre site near the town of Ripon, in California’s abundant northern interior. Constructed in 1998, the large-capacity winery is dedicated to producing high quality wines with “small winery” methods.

Tasting: Testamento Wines

When: Saturday 6/15 2-5pm Testamento Wines hail from Argentina. You can find them in our New World section back near the coolers. We'll be tasting several wines from this winery, some from their classic line and some from their estate line. Be sure to stop by and check them out!

Tasting: Ferrari Carano

When: Friday June 21 3-6pm Located in Dry Creek Valley and home to Ferrari-Carano’s Villa Fiore Wine Shop & Tasting Room, the Estate Winery was built in 1981 and focuses on producing Ferrari-Carano’s stellar white wines. At Ferrari-Carano, we harvest our grapes at night, when temperatures are the coolest, giving us crisp and intense fruit flavors.

Tasting: JW Kelly Whiskey & Big O Ginger Liqueur

When: Saturday June 22nd 1-4pm The spirit of J.W.Kelly’s original bourbon, born in 1866 in Chattanooga TN, is captured by marrying 5-, 6-, and 8-year-old aged barrels of bourbon, hand selected by the JWK crew. This Old Milford Straight Bourbon Whiskey is handcrafted in 3,000-gallon pot stills to give it bold and unique characteristics.

Tasting: Castle & Key Vodka and Gin

When: Friday June 28th 5-7pm All Castle & Key spirits are a testament to our principled approach. Locally-sourced ingredients inspire our process and our product. We make everything that we sell, from carefully selected grains. We do not use bulk vodka to create our spirits. We choose to do things the thoughtful way – even though it’s not the easy way – because waiting to sell products we make is worth it. And that matters.
