Well the fireworks are all done in our neighborhoods, Chef Jeff has retired from being a grill master – but the excitement here at Village Wines and Piccolo is just beginning!   Many thanks to all of you who dined with us during the past 3 weeks – your support during our transition time is greatly appreciated! A big shout out to Vincenzo’s and Tela for providing the food for the first and second weeks – and to Jeff Eberlein for manning the grills over the last weekend!

Chef Nick starts today!  The menu will be constant – with weekly specials – and we will try to source as much as possible from local farms.  Denise Sullivan of Vintage Wines will be pouring Friday night – and we chose the wines based on Nick’s menu.  Remember, there is only a $5 corkage fee on Friday night featured wines.  Hope to see you all Friday night!!

We’ve added more members to the Crew Club in June – and would love to add more!  Let us do your wine shopping for you – we are always on the lookout for great tasting wines – that will expand your wine knowledge.  Tasting/tech sheets and recipes accompany each wine.  Makes a great gift also!  Call 771-6611 to join.

Need a gift for a hard to buy for person?  How about a Village Wines gift basket?  We make them year ‘round – and will customize it for you.  They’re not just for the holidays!

Mark’s pick – 2012 Zanon Zinfandel – Dry Creek Valley – Sonoma’s best Zinfandel producing appellation. Balanced and medium-weight version.  14% alcohol, $19.99

MaryBeth’s pick – 2010 Chateau Ambe Tour Pourret, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru – a terrific wine for $29.99 – and a Grand Cru!  Very well balanced with lots of depth.

Kate’s pick – 2011 Round Pond Rutherford Cabernet – 94 points Antonio Galloni – was $59.99 – now $44.99!
