This week we will be tasting Bordeaux varietals. Bordeaux is ancient old blend that must includes at least one but generally more of these varietals:  Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petite Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc and Semillion. Of late other countries have taken these grapes and produced straight varietal wines with them.

Everybody has a favorite. This tasting we explore the varietals that French winemakers gained their reputation with and that other countries have used to produce straight varietals wines which earned them a place on the map in the wine industry because of their style.

These wines are always favored when we put them in a tasting. Come pick your favorite.

It's time again to take a trip around the world of Syrahs. See which region you most prefer. We will taste a couple of domestic sirahs, some Australian shirazs, and even a syrah from Italy and South Africa. Always a favorite tasting.

The grape is called Syrah in the US, France, and many countries. In Australia it is called Shiraz, where it is considered the finest red wine grown there.

Shiraz is known for its spicy blackberry, plum and peppery flavors. Often there are notes of licorice, chocolate, and mocha, while cooler growing temperatures spice up the wine. Come taste six awesome selections from this beautiful varietal.

Come join us as we celebrate CataVinos this anniversary, our biggest event of the year, where we introduce 40+ new wines into the shoppe.

As usual you get to voice an opinion on which ones you think are the best and we’ve selected them carefully to provide a well rounded tasting with something for everyone. Old world, new world, dry, fruity, sweet, you name it and we’ve got some great examples for you to try. I think you are going to have a hard time deciding what is your favorite from this wide variety of stellar wines. Not only are they delicious they are all great values. Additionally, the day of the party all of our wines are 10% off whether they are party wines or not. So stop by, taste a boatload of wines, pick out your favorites and stock up as you save a bunch of money.

I’m so grateful to all of you who have allowed me to still be here and in business after six years obtaining wines for you to enjoy

It really makes an impact when you are as lucky as me to be surrounded by so many wonderful people providing that much needed support system.

I’ve spared nothing when it comes to selecting the wines, these HAVE to be the best yet was the direction to the distributors as we tasted through hundreds of wines selecting only the best of the best. Join us as we introduce you to these carefully selected selections, but you be the judge and jury.
