Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes

Hey, guys. I just finished the notes for tomorrow’s Cabernet Sauvignon tasting and I wanted to share them with you. This should be a killer pairing with the special and also just by itself. Tomorrow at 7:00pm, don’t be late.

Also, I’m working on the Valentine’s wine tasting. Jeez! Lay off, a little bit, will ya?

Buffalo Ribeye and Cabernet Sauvignon Wine Tasting

Hello everyone!

We’re gradually getting back to normal over here. We’re still not quite there, but little by little, we’re getting there. I didn’t finish it until late last week, but I have a new cocktail list with some cool drink. I have posted it on our Facebook and our website.

With that in mind, the special this week will be buffalo ribeye with a red wine reduction and mushrooms, served with fingerling potatoes and heirloom carrots. Which should pair exceptionally with this week’s wine tasting.

Which leads us to the wine tasting! On Thursday, at 7:00pm, we’ll be doing a cabernet sauvignon wine tasting. It’s not as “different” of a wine tasting as I normally do, but the special this week was just screaming for something like this. We’ll do 4 different cab sauv from 4 different regions, all of which should go great with the special.

Here is a message from Mom: “Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Club members and everyone else: we are conducting a wine class (complete with wine and tapas) about Italy on Saturday, January 25th from 3:00-5:00pm. $20 per person (free to Wine Club members). Greg Leblanc will be teaching and pouring- don’t miss it!”

Lastly, don’t forget to make a reservation for our Valentine’s Day dinner. I have already posted the menu for everyone to see (also on the website and Facebook). If you’re interested, I’d recommend giving us a call this week.

Thank you guys for your support!

Bizzi’s Bistro and Wine Bar

Valentine’s Day Dinner Menu

As promised (although admittedly a little late) I have finished the Valentine’s Wine Dinner Menu. We are now accepting reservations for both the 14th and the 15th, starting at 5:00pm. Typically, we fill up to the brim on our Valentine’s wine dinners, just as a heads-up. Call if you have any questions.

I will be sending the wine pairing that goes with this dinner sometime soon.


We’re back! New menu, new ideas, new look…still awesome.

So, I’m sure most of you already know that we have taken the last three weeks to do a bit of changing/refinement to Bizzi’s. We’ll, we’re back and we have some new things to share with you. Our goal was to get back to basics, a little bit. More than anything else, though, we wanted to make things a little more fun. We’ve just been doing the same thing for a while now, and it was time for a change. 

With that in mind, I am attaching the new lunch menu and the new dinner menu for everyone’s viewing pleasure. I have only had a few things off of them, but they were freaking awesome. There’s fewer items on it, but I think they’re all more interesting. If you have any opinions you’d like to share, please feel free to let me know. I’m excited, personally.
Also, the Valentine’s menu is done and I’m typing it up as we speak. I didn’t want to inundate you guys with too much information and this message will risk becoming a wall of text, as it is. Once it is typed, I will send it out to everyone in it’s own message, so it’s easier to focus on. 
There will be no special or wine tasting this week, because we need to focus on refining everything and getting used to the routine. We’ll start doing tastings and specials next week.
To our wonderful Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Club Members:  Wine Class (and Club) on Saturday, January 25th at 3:00 p.m. sharp — we’ll be studying Italy the fun way (tasting….tasting….tasting).
Lastly, we’ll be keeping a more active social media presence (hopefully) for those who are interested in that. So go over to our instagram and facebook for more regular posts. Hopefully we won’t be boring.
See you, soon.

New Opening Date

Posting just in case you didn’t see our story yesterday. We promise that it’s not that we don’t want to be open, we just want everything to be perfect when we do!
Thanks understanding!

We will re-open at 11:30am on Tuesday, January 14th.

Sparkling Wine Tasting and Christmas Break

Sorry for sending out another message, I hope I’m not bothering anyone.

I just wanted to remind everyone that Bizzi’s will be closed for a few weeks after this weekend (we will reopen on Tuesday, January 7th) for Christmas break and a facelift. So anyone that wants their Bizzi’s fix needs to come in tonight or tomorrow. This is your last chance to try our Fall menu before we switch over to the Winter menu after the break, so if there’s anything you really like, maybe try to get it one last time in case it goes away. Other than that, we’re pretty awesome so you should try to come see us one last time in 2019, just because.

Also, and maybe more importantly, we are going to continue running last night’s Holiday Celebration Sparkling Wine Tasting until I run out of it. So, if you’d like to do the (really good according to everyone who did it) tasting this weekend, we can surely oblige. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, though. I’ll try to keep everyone posted on that, as well. The tasting notes are attached below. 

If we don’t see you until next year, have a safe holiday and a great new year.


Italian Stuffed Chicken and Holiday Sparkling Wine Tasting

So, Mom wrote the majority of the message today:
“Good afternoon, friends.

Two big things that we need to make sure everyone knows about:

1) We are heading into our last open week for 2019 — so be sure to come in for your Bizzi’s fix before the end of the week!  We will be closed from Sunday, December 22, 2019 until January 7th. We figure to use that time to spruce everything up a bit, as well.  

2) Wynette Griffin, pianist extraordinaire, and I will be playing four hands piano on Thursday night (starting around 6:30pm) to get you into the Christmas spirit — but make reservations if you haven’t, because we are nearly booked already.

Our feature this week is Italian Stuffed Chicken with a Pesto Cream Sauce. 

Wednesday’s Cocktail Specials will be $7 Holiday-Themed cocktails. And just like with Christmas gifts, you don’t get to pick what you get. You can hint at what you like and I’ll make you what I think will make you the happiest. But I promise to try really hard.

Thursday’s Wine Tasting is meant to pair with the four hands holiday piano that we’re doing. We figured what better way to celebrate the holidays than a sparkling wine tasting! It’ll feature one from America, one from Italy, one from Burgundy and an exceedingly good one from Champagne! I’ll send out the notes tomorrow, but please understand that we’re almost booked already with the piano thing so if you are coming to the tasting, please call and make a reservation.

Lastly, Bizzi’s Cellar is moving downstairs!  The Queen Bee is very happy that she will not be lugging wine boxes up and down stairs (after they are all moved downstairs, anyway).  We are offering all of our Cellar in-stock wines at 25% discount through this week for everyone (not just Wine Cellar Club Members), so stock up while you can.

We hope each of you has a healthy, relaxing holiday and we will be here in the New Year to help you make your New Year’s resolutions!
Love from Queen Bee and the Hive”

Wine Sale

Hi, all! We have our Bizzi’s Cellar wines on a special deal through December 21: 25% off on every bottle! We’ll be here from 3-5 p.m. today and then we’ll be here all next week during our normal working hours. Come in and get your holiday stash – we have lots of delicious wines that aren’t available at local big box liquor stores at every price point. 

Wine Tasting Notes and Tonight’s Cocktail Specials

I finished picking out the wines for tomorrow’s wine tasting and I have attached the tasting notes for everyone to get a look at. I basically picked one request each from 4 different people and made a wine tasting out of it. It’s sort of a roundabout way of letting people share their favorite wines with other people.

In addition, the cocktail specials for tonight will be $7 Polar Bear Coffees, Espresso Corettos and Smoked Maple Coffees. All warm drinks for (hopefully) cold weather. Although it felt a little warmer than I’d like the last time I was outside.
