This week we’ll head to France to celebrate Bastille Day next week. We've got some new French wines in the shoppe that I'm excited to share with you and some favorites that just keep on keeping on. Look for some wonderful dry rose's, bordeaux, perhaps a picpoule as well as a few other varietals that you may or may not be familiar with.

There is a wide range of styles now produced by the French in response to the American palate and we will taste a variety of em to show you what they’ve got from dry and minerally to fruity and crisp. Stop by and give em an honest chance, THEN let me know what you think.

In honor of the late Bonnie Lewis we are going to be tasting her favorites. I've resurrected some tasting's from the past where she was in the drivers seat and selected her favorites here in the shoppe. Sometimes she would come to the tastings all three days and those days especially you could expect to see her come through the door.

She picked em' sat here to see your reaction and if you didn't like it she just kept on drinking saying "there's more for me" Well Bonnie, let's toast to you. We love you.

In 2012

To celebrate Bonnie’s 62nd birthday (you all know Bonnie) she’s picking  out some of her personal favorites and some new discoveries for your tasting pleasure. Expect almost anything, she’s full of surprises for sure (and some would claim she’s just ‘full of it’). It’s never too late to try a  new wine, she likes ‘em big and bold or smooth and earthy, then there’s everything in between. She’s been around the shoppe since it’s inception, come see if your palate agrees with hers.

In 2013

So it’s Bonnie’s birthday week and as you all know she’ll do almost anything for wine. Every now and again I indulge those who are instrumental to the shoppe and give them whatever they want and she wants blends. So blends it is. What the heck we haven’t done a blend tasting in awhile and have several new ones so let’s celebrate Bonnie and as she says “let’s get this show on the road!”

A little about Nancy Elliott:

Southwestern Americana  is music and stories inspired by the people, land and lore of the Desert Southwest and speaking to that intense, alive, wild and dangerous place in the soul forever hungering for big skies, adventure, and a little something to tame.

          " Nancy Elliott has a natural grace that lends a layer of elegance to even the rowdiest western tune.  Her repertoire includes, hand-selected tributes to strong women, and her own portfolio of love songs.  Nancy's finger style guitar playing is clear and precise, and she knows her instrument well.  A long history of playing solo, or in bands of various sizes has helped Nancy develop a confidence and a style that manifest in each performance.  She has been good for a long time, but she is better now than she was the last time you heard her. "

International Friendship Day is a day for celebrating friendship. The day has been celebrated in several southern South American countries for many years, particularly in Paraguay, where the first World Friendship Day was proposed in 1958.

Friendship Day is August 2th and what better thing to do but share a bottle of your favorite wine with a favorite friend. This week we will showcase some of our biggest sellers in the shoppe and give you a chance to share them with a friend. Come in for this tasting and pick out one that is your favorite and then share it with you friends. Better yet, treat one of your friends to a tasting and their tasting will be half off to you. This is National Friendship Day at it’s finest. Remember you have a friend in the business.
