So where are the best values and most undiscovered wines coming from these days? Well it appears to be South America. How did they become such players in the wine market? It all began when they decided that they wouldn’t just drink all of their wines but try to make some money on them by distributing them around the world. It seems to be working because the wines that we are getting our hands on are of very high quality and very reasonably priced making then a great value. We love values! So if you aren’t familiar with Carmenere, Bonardo, and Malbec, just to name a few varietals, here is your chance to bond with them while their prices are still so low.

 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.

Time to salute mothers. What better way to show your appreciation for your mother than take her to a wine tasting and buy her a bottle of her favorite wine? For those of you still lucky enough to have her around bring her by and she tastes for free. It’s a good excuse to spend quality time with her while doing something that you love (she expects that you know). For those like myself whose mother’s are no longer around to spend that quality time with how about if we tip a glass in memory and salute her? Mother’s are special (you only get one) and this weekends tasting is designed with special wines that I am sure she will love whether they be white or red or even a sparklie. For all you adult children who accompany you mother to the tasting, I’ll help you celebrate and her tasting is on us.

Let the festivities begin! Perhaps you all don’t know it but I graduated from “The U” on my birthday which makes this tasting extra special. So to celebrate my birthday AND all the graduates everywhere I say “Let the party begin”. Normally I pick out wines for you but this week we will be serving six wines that I (Yvonne) personally enjoy. Many people ask me what my favorite wine. That really is an unfair question because I’ve grown to love so many and it just can’t be narrowed down to one or two. So this weekend we will cycle through some of my favorite wines in the shoppe. Every night there will be a different six, that way I can cover the most. For those of you who are graduating stop by with your family and show them how smart you are by finding great values in wine. Graduates taste for free. Stop by and enjoy this once a year event.

In honor of Memorial Day 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. As usual with these types of tastings all military, whether retired or active, taste for free as well as deployed military spouses. Just a little thank you and some gratitude for all you do.

No Kill Pima County is a local grassroots organization working to save more savable animals at PACC. For info call 520-477-7401 or visit http://nokillpimacounty.org

No Kill Pima County is working to end the needless killing of shelter animals in Tucson and Pima County, AZ through the rigorous implementation of the No Kill Equation.
 

We strive to create a compassionate community that recognizes the intrinsic value of animals. We agree on the shared principles of accountability, respect, transparency and community collaboration.

Pima County's municipal shelter had a 61% save rate (2013). Almost 8,000 cats and dogs died. Yet, all across the country communities are proving it is possible to save at least 90% of the animals that enter animal control shelters by employing the No Kill Equation. This model includes 11 essential components which when implemented comprehensively have proven successful in over 200 communities.

We are their voice! We are a small but growing group of concerned citizens with a goal to see Pima County implement the only successful model:
The No Kill Equation.

Well it’s finally official, it’s BBQ season.

Nothing helps make the time more pleasing and nothing goes better with BBQ and friends than a great bottle of wine. That’s makes two bottles of wine that you will need so far, so just to cover all your bases you might want to pick up a spare bottle or two.
