We're decking the halls with goods, merriment, and of course curated wine for the season! Come get in the holiday spirit with us whether it be for one of our hand selected pours, a special event, workshop, or all of the above. We would love to help add some cheer to your December (or really any time of the year...yes we're always this happy). Here's a glimpse of one of the special holiday wines coming this month for you to share, gift, or heck, drink it yourself!

2011 Domaine Rimbert "Les Mas au Schiste," St. Chinian... In MAGNUM! $38
40% Carignan, 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache
From 60 year old vines planted on the steepest schist slopes of St. Chinian. Tasting Note: Ruby in the glass with shimmering highlights. The nose is redolent with red and black fruit scents; cherry cordial, blueberry jam and crushed stones that are backed by a slight suggestion of black olive and hummus. The palate is elegant and generous with loads of elegant red and black fruit flavors steeped in dynamic mineral-infused cocoa tones.

Wine EDU: Loire Love
w/ Jenna Congdon
December 1, 6-8 PM $30

Ah, the Loire Valley… Storied castles and lush green hills… Goats and houses carved right into the river’s banks. Cave dwellers. And cool climate vineyards all around. Arguably these are some of the most undervalued wines in France. That is to say, the best wines from the Loire will cost you a fraction of what you might pay for the best wines in Burgundy or the Rhone.

Here’s your introduction to the world of Loire Valley Wines. Learn about the key regions and grape varieties, and taste your way along the Loire river.

$30 for a sit down brief seminar and tasting flight with Station Manager Jenna Congdon.

Holiday Spritzers

"Always keep a bottle of Champagne in the fridge for special occasions. 

Sometimes the occasion is there's a bottle of Champagne in the fridge." -Hester Browne

If you ask me, Champagne should not have a "season", we should drink it all year long. But they say it's Champagne season, so let's have a Champagne party!
