"SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EVE TASTING"

THURSDAY: December 25th - Closed

Two glasses of wine for $10.00
 
I'm going to be open all day Christmas Eve and am throwing a pre party so I have someone to hang out with as we anxiously await the official holiday day.

Let's celebrate Christmas Eve together.

Here’s the scenario, all of your chores are done, you come and have have fun with those that you won’t be spending the day with and you're able to still get home in time to catch jolly ole St. Nick come down that chimney. I love it, come spend the pre holiday with us!

We’ll be utilizing the New Orleans style of running a business, after 6PM when nobody shows up for half an hour we will close. You guys could theoretically keep me here until midnight or even later if I’m lucky.

We celebrate the New Year with one of our favorite tastings. Sparklies! I’ve been collecting some new ones over the last few months to showcase. We’ve got a delightful Spanish blend, a cava, a prosecco, a French sparklie, a dry rose, and a domestic. These have been vetted out to be great tasting and wonderful values. Stop by and see what is new and let’s start the year out right.

"SPECIAL NEW YEAR'S EVE TASTING"
 
WEDNESDAY: December 31st - 11:00 AM to close

Two glasses of wine for $10.00
 
I'm going to be open all day New Years Eve as we wait for the ball to drop, I can’t wait to see you all. Let’s begin the celebration at CataVinos where I will have bottles of sparklies open (let’s say three, yeah that’s a good number). As we pour through the bottles we’ll open more, you can even help me choose.

This will be fun, let’s end and begin the new year together. Think about it, you come to CataVinos for a Celebration then you're able to still get home in time to watch the ball drop and be off of the roads before the crazies get out there trying to kill you and ruin your whole night. If you are one of those crazies, you need a starting point don’t you?

I don't know, I must be getting older because that sounds like a blast to me. All the fun and no hassle.

We’ll be utilizing the New Orleans style of running a business again, after 6PM when nobody shows up for half an hour we will close. I like it!

"BLIND TASTING"

THURSDAY: January 1st - Closed
FRIDAY: January 2nd - 4:00 to 8:00 PM
SATURDAY: January 3rd - 4:00 to 8:00 PM

Six wines for $10.00
($8.00 with take home wine purchase over $10.00. FREE with case purchase)

Let’s start the year out right and set a baseline. The time has come for some added fun and time to test your knowledge of wine and the flavors found in some of our favorite varietals.  Here’s where you put your palate to the test to see if all that wine-tasting is paying off. We’ll pour six wines disguised in brown paper packaging. Your tasting sheet will provide tasting notes; your assignment is to decide which wine is which. There are no secrets, and there are no tricks, simply match each wine with the flavor descriptions given and you win. This tasting is designed to prove to some of you that you know more about wine than you think. I’m betting that you are all going to do very well.

A fun favorite around here, anyone matching all six wines correctly wins a free tasting. No kidding!
