Let’s celebrate the life of Mary whose birthday just happens to be January 20th. Many of those who come into the shoppe knew her and grew to love her as much as I did. She lost her battle with cancer just one week before her 50th birthday so let’s have a birthday party for her. She so enjoyed wine and this is our chance to toast a glass in her honor. This entire weekend we will taste wines that she loved to take home with her after work and sip on before bed. Join us as we bid farewell to yet another CataVinan. Not sure how much more heartache I can take. Mary, you will be sorely missed.

Pawsitively Cats is a 501(c)3 No Kill shelter for cats rescued in the Tucson area. As of February 1, 2012, Pawsitively Cats has assumed responsibility for the animals from the Casa del los No Kill Cat Sanctuary.

It's time to once again drink some wine in honor of those beloved cats who are homeless and in need of great homes as well as demonstrate support to the wonderful no kill cat shelter that cares for them as they patiently wait for the perfect forever home.

Pawsitively Cats is Arizona's largest no-kill cat shelter. They operate a cage-free sanctuary for special needs cats and a cage-free shelter and foster homes for adoptable cats and kittens. They promote and practice TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) for feral cats and are helping to lead the way to a no-kill Pima County.

Stop by and meet some fellow cat lovers as you sip wine and trade stories while supporting this worth while organization. Obviously organizations such as Pawsitively Cats are always in need of money which helps support the cats as well as helps to provide their much needed medical care. If you cannot make the event donations are accepted and could include cat food, litter, etc.

In honor of Presidents Day and all that's American, let’s taste some wines that support and are produced right here in the good ole USA. Now many other countries produce great wines, that’s no secret, but so do we! We’ve moved to the forefront and domestic wines are something to be proud of plus it’s one of those things that are difficult to outsource so how about we look at it this way? “By the people and for the people”. Let’s come together over a glass of wine and let our differences melt away. It’s all about us.

Please join us as we celebrate the artistry of both wine and skilled artists in this wonderful tasting of blends as we honor the current artist hanging in the shoppe Betsy Farmer. Wine makers, like artists have different styles and techniques. Great artistry like great wines are interesting, complex, have depth and require creativity while demonstrating the mastery of the artist themselves. It takes a skilled wine maker to marry the right amounts of the right grapes to create a masterpiece of mouth-pleasing wine, just like a piece of fine art.

Stop by on Saturday and meet the artist daughter and taste these blends which complement the work in the shoppe and are works of art all by themselves.

In honor of having an extra day this year to drink wine we’re having a special Leap Year Wines tasting featuring wines produced in leap years. We carry a wide range of wines from that vintage which happened to be a good year for grapes. Let’s hope this year has the same weather conditions that produce the same quality.
