Hello and Happy Friday!
** SPECIAL EVENT **
I’m extremely excited to have good friend and winemaker Marcus Goodfellow in-house next Friday, June 8th, to showcase some of Oregon’s most elegant (Burgundian-style) wines from Matello Wines.
This is an informal tasting where you can pop in anytime from 6-7:30pm. We will be tasting through nine current releases (5 whites and 4 reds); this event is not to be missed!
It’s only $15/person and only 12 spots are available! We will be tasting through nine current releases (5 whites and 4 reds); this event is not to be missed!

In other wine-related news, even though I’m still in Italy, I was recently informed that two spectacular French rosés have finally landed in Chicago and are now available in-store.
Speaking of which, the store is open (albeit with abbreviated weekday hours) until my return
Saturday from 11-7pm
Sunday and Monday CLOSED
Tuesday through Thursday from 1-7pm
I’ll be back in town next Friday and will resume regular store hours then!
2011 Languedoc Ermitage du Pic Saint Loup Rosé
This is a delicious and well-balanced rosé containing 30% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvedre and 10% Cinsault. With hints of mineral, citrus and mango with a full and crisp finish, it is the perfect pairing for many lightly-spiced or grilled items. Did I mention that it’s from Pic Saint Loup, one of the most unique growing regions in the Languedoc? $14.99 BTL. / $179.88 CASE
2011 Château Thivin Beaujolais Rosé
A seriously elegant rosé from one of the best producers in the Côte de Brouilly. Made from 100% Gamay Noir, you haven’t had rosé unless you’ve tried this one! It’s so good, you’re going to want to come back for more. Grab some while you can; this will surely fly off the shelves!
