Hello, guys and gals!
As has become more common of late, I’m way behind on my message for everyone. I’ve just been trying to get the tastings together and the cocktail list and all that jazz. Plus, we were busy this morning. So, anyway, sorry about that.
The special this week is a Shrimp and Crab Bruschetta Pasta with Angelhair. As much rain as we’re about to get, the seafood will be very weather-appropriate.
Tonight, we’ll be doing a cocktail tasting, featuring a Raspberry Ginger Bellini (Mathilde raspberry liquer, ginger, sparkling wine), a Brandy Daisy (cognac, lemon, grenadine, chartreuse), and a Baker Street Swizzle (absinthe, lemon, falernum, bitters).
Wednesday, we’ll have another day of Half-Bottle for Half-Price. Meaning, if you wanna pick any bottle of ours under $200, you can pay half the cost for half the bottle. Basically, it’s a way for anyone to try 2 glasses of any wine of their choice. It’s a hell of a way to get to try wines that aren’t on my by the glass list.
Thursday’s wine tasting will be Spain! What I’ve done for the last two weeks with Bordeaux and Italy, I’ll be doing with Spain. So 4 of my personal favorite regions of Spain done in a little higher-end style. I’ll post the tasting notes tomorrow, but the wines I’ve gotten are exceptional, again. Assuming they’re not out of stock on any of the wines, I’ll think they’ll hover around 92 points on average each. Plus it’s a pretty wide range of grapes, too. I was worried I was gonna be too Tempranillo/Grenache heavy, but that’s not the case. In one of the wines are grapes I’ve never even heard of.
There’s still a few spots left for the Anniversary Wine Dinner available, so if you’re interested in coming to our 8th Anniversary Party, let us know. I’ve posted the menu and the corresponding wine tasting already so go ahead and take a look if you’re curious. Sooner than later would be better, because it will fill up for sure.
The Bizzi’s Cellar Monthly Wine Club Tasting will be on Saturday June 1st at 4:00pm, for you wine clubbers. She says she’ll see you there.
Thanks for being patient with me. See you soon!
