Hello and Happy Friday!
Hope you had a great week!
In Perman Wine news, Craig has returned from France, an epic trip that included much Champagne, Grand Cru Burgundy and a Scarlett Johansson sighting!
That means Perman Wine will be back open for business this Monday. However, he is off on quick business trip for a few days. So we have some strange hours this week:
Monday & Tuesday 12-8pm
Thursday & Friday: 12-8pm
We appreciate your patience as we continue to juggle these relentless travel schedules.
If you haven’t heard – we are declaring May the month of Portugal!
Not only did our two Portuguese tastings sell out quickly, but we just found out some amazing news.
Francisca Van Zeller of Quinta Vale D. Maria – one of the Douro regions top estates will be in Chicago! To celebrate we are throwing her a party / tasting.
When: Tuesday May 20th, 2014
What Time: Stop in anytime between 5pm & 7:30PM
Cost: $35 Per Person
RSVP – You must RSVP, only 30 spots available. Please call the shop with a credit card to reserve your space. 312-666-4417
Details: The Van Zellers have been associated with Port and the Douro for well over 200 years. After selling the famed Port house Quinta do Noval in 1993, Cristiano Van Zeller soon purchased the historic estate of Quinta Vale D. Maria. The Douro, so rich in history for Port production, was starting a new chapter at the time, one where dry red wines would be made in the Valley, in this case from a single Quinta or property.
In just a short time, the wines of Quinta Vale D. Maria have become known around the world for their quality. We are excited to present a wide range of wines from the estate. We will of course have Ports, three different kinds. But even more exciting are the reds we will taste, from their inexpensive “Rufo,” to their flagship Quinta Vale D. Maria, and even three super-rare, world class reds, C.V., and the two single vineyards, Vinha da Francisca and Vinha do Río. The production of these wines is absolutely tiny, and it is very rare to get to taste them.
This is going to be an epic tasting, and we are so thrilled to have Francisca here. Hope you can make it!
It is the last Friday of the month, and that means time to unveil another Six for $60-Something sampler!
The 6 for $60-Something is Chicago (and the world’s) best monthly value wine sampler!
This month, we are returning to an all Spanish theme. About a year ago we did a sampler we called “Spanish Immersion Therapy” and it was a huge hit. So we are doing it again.
All of these selections are available by the bottle and the case, but there is no better way to learn wine than by trying a variety of new wines.
If interested in a sampler, simply stop by the store, or send us an email and we can coordinate delivery or shipping.
