Wine Tasting Notes 3/4/16-3/5/16

We are having a special wine tasting event in El Cajon this weekend. Our new wine specialist Terry brings years of experience to our El Cajon store and he will introduce to you some great wines from our valued Vineyards from around the World. This weekend we will feature wines from Rombauer Vineyards, which include some great high point rated wines! Make plans to join us!

Rombauer Tasting Event

If you aren’t familiar with one of Napa’s most famous wineries, you may be aware of the Joy of Cooking cookbook. If you cook, chances are you have this book. It is in fact authored by none other than Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker. Irma is the great aunt of the owners of this famous winery that has made amazing wines since 1980.

“The Rombauer philosophy hasn’t changed since its founding in 1980. They believe in doing everything in their power to produce the best wines possible. With just three head winemakers in their 35-year history, they’ve achieved consistency in style – distinctive, fruit-driven wines – while continually refining and improving their winemaking practices.”

We will be pouring traditional 2 oz samples of each wine we are featuring, with the option to purchase additional 6 oz glasses as well as purchase specials on each vintage we feature. We will also have cheese, fruit and meat platters available for purchase as well.We hope you can join us in what will be some great events moving forward.
