Chardonnay Tasting

Here’s the lineup for tonight’s Chardonnay tasting:
2012 Kalaris Napa Valley
2010 Saint Veran Burgundy
2013 Jermann Venezia
2014 Woodward Canyon Walla Walla

The tasting starts at 7:00pm, and I know we don’t usually do all white wine tastings, but I wanted to give the Chardonnay drinkers of the word something to taste. Each wine is from a different region, so it’s a great way to taste what Chard tastes like, everywhere. We’ll even have an optional bonus wine for people interested in trying another region’s Chardonnay. Hope to see you, tonight!

If All The Raindrops Were Lemon Drops And Gum Drops

Hello, everyone, on this rainy afternoon. Hope everyone is being safe.

Our Valentine’s Day dinners were both last week, and we will post pictures for everyone to see. Rob took a million, and I’m sure you will all be plenty tired of them by the time we send them all out.

First, a special message to everyone with regards to the wine club. Elaine is still recovering, so she’s moving the wine club tasting to Saturday, March 3rd (just a week later than it was supposed to be).

This week’s special will be Seafood Crepes, with shrimp and scallops tossed in a lemon-tomato crepe filling. All of that is topped with seared tilapia and a Cajun lemon butter sauce. It pairs fantastically with the Hilliard Bruce Pinot Noir.

Tuesday is our usual Tuesday Boozeday, with $7 House cocktails, glass of red and white, brie en croute, wings and fried cheese.

Wednesday, we’re celebrating spirits with $7 Gingerbread cocktails.

Thursday, the wine tasting will be the Valentine’s Day Wine Tasting. That way, people who didn’t get a chance to have what may have been our best wine tasting ever, will get a chance to drink it. If you can find the time to come in and have the tasting, I promise you it’s worth it. It’s fantastic.

So bundle up, be safe, and come in to join us for a drink!

Seafood Pasta!

Good afternoon, all!

If you come in this week you will notice someone very important is missing – Elaine had a bilateral knee replacement this weekend! She is recovering well and eager to get back to work. She is thankful for all of the well wishes and kind thoughts she has continued to receive.

As for the restaurant – The show must go on…..

If you are a sea food lover, our dinner special this week is not one to miss! House made pasta with shrimp, scallops, and baby clams tossed in a bruschetta and wine butter sauce.

Of course it is Tuesday Boozeday, so come in for our drink and appetizer specials tonight.

Thursday starts a new month of wine tastings – All French wines all month long

This week starts with Rhone Valley – be there or be sad that you miss out?

Come have a drink for The Queen Bee!

Short, sweet, to the point

Hello, everyone!

I’m going to be short/to the point, today, because we’ve been busy and need to take every available second leftover to get our customary drinking in. If I take 4 hours to write this message, those are 4 hours I could be “studying for the Sommelier test” or “Quality testing new wine”. Gotta have your priorities in order, wouldn’t you agree?

Tuesday Boozeday is in effect, with $7 Glass of Red and White wine, House cocktails, Wings, Brie en Croute, Fried Cheese.

Wednesday, we’ll be celebrating spirits with Pineapple Vodka drinks. We’ll have a spicy one, a sweet one, and a creamy/desserty one.

Thursday is Wine Tasting Day! Everyone’s favorite day of the week. This time, we will be wrapping up our month-long lesson on what goes into a red blend, by actually tasting red blends. You’ve gotten to taste all the grapes individually, now taste how they work together. Red Blend Tasting starts at 7:00pm.

Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, and spots are starting to fill up. If you want to come to either dinner (the 14th or the 17th), I would call this week and make a reservation.  This is Rob’s first Valentine’s Dinner and he has created what may be the best Valentine’s Menu we’ve ever done. You can take a look at the menu, yourself, by clicking on the “menu” tab on the left side of this page. Call 817-281-9500 for reservations.


See you soon,

Hot Drink Special

Hello, everyone! I know that it’s cold as heck outside, so we thought we’d try to help out. No, our weather control machine isn’t ready, yet, and it would take a long time to move it from our Secret Evil Lair all the way to Bedford. Instead, we figure we’d try to help you forget about the cold, entirely.

To that end, from now until the weather gets above 32 degrees, all hot drinks are half off. That means anything boozy and toasty will cost 50% less, with the hope that you’ll forget all about freezing your buns off.

We also made authentic, traditional German Gluhwein, to boot. Allen brought the ingredients back from his recent trip to Germany. It’s a little taste of Hamburg (not hamburger).


Buffalo Meatloaf

This week we’re featuring Double Buffalo Lasagna – with buffalo meat as well as buffalo mozzarella … and pork and four cheeses and Bolognese. Doesn’t get much better than that if you’re trying to fend off the chill.

Thursday, January 18: Our wine tasting is all about Merlot, and we’re starting to pour at 7:00. Hint: February is our month for French Wines! Oh so delicious – just ask The Polar Bear.

A few seats left in our Jam & Jelly Class on Saturday, January 20th at noon: demonstration, take-home preserves, and lunch. $30 – call us at 817-281-9500.

Valentine’s Dinner: Two nights – Wednesday, February 14 and Saturday, February 17, reservations available from 5 to 9 p.m., 7 courses for $65 per person (Menu available here). Michael is putting together a perfect pairing of wines for the dinner if you decide to make it a blow-up evening (pairing optional).

And lastly, calling all Bizzi’s Cellar Wine Club Members: Your January Wine Tasting is Saturday, January 20 from 3-5 p.m. Even if you haven’t decided, come taste with us – you’ll be hooked!

Stay bundled up, all!
