Grapevine 2.1 January 3, 2017



I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and Happy New Year! Village Wines and Piccolo will be closed until January 6 – when we will re-open at our normal hours. Come and join us for our first tasting of 2017 – with Tommy Quitter of Tramonte and Sons. It’s a fun line-up with “New World Rhones and Blends”. The Jazz People are playing at Piccolo starting at 7:00 pm.


We are having a special tasting event on January 18th. Join us as we welcome Jim Diana (Mid Central Region Manager) and Tim Bushey (Fine Wine and Spirit Manager) of Vintage Wine Estates. We will get started at 7:00 and taste wines from the BR Cohn, Clos Pegase, Swanson and Sonoma Coast Vineyards. Stay tuned for more information.


February will once again be Italian Month! Each Friday night tasting will feature different Italian grapes. Last year we didn’t repeat a grape or grape combination and we don’t plan to this year either! Come out and join us for this fun month long event – and discover which Italian grapes YOU prefer!!


Another fun way to discover new wines – is to join our ‘Crew Club” – our Wine of the Month Club.   We have 2 levels – a ‘Grand Cru” level – 2 bottles of red, or 2 bottles of white – or 1 of each. Both bottles will be no more than $39.99 before tax and will be available on a monthly basis. Our ‘Premier Cru” level is one bottle per month and will be priced between $60- $100.   Over the past year, we have chosen wines from Austria, Spain, Israel, France, Oregon, different Zinfandels – just to name a few. Each month we email a summary about the wines and the tasting notes. Many of the wines featured in the 2016 wine club selections have been reordered – and some are purchased so often – we just keep them in stock! Stay tuned for more WOM perks to be announced – and call us at 771-6611 to join!


We have 2 of the Top 100 wines in the store! The Felsina Chianti Classico is #40 and Intrinsic Red Blend is #22. Come in and give them a try!


Also, don’t forget Village Wines when it comes to gift planning. We can make custom gift baskets, and have gift certificates available in any denomination.
