We’ve put together an interesting assortment of wines for this Friday (Saturday tastings will resume next week) that serve a variety of purposes. Take one to a restaurant (The Junction? No corkage fee), home for dinner or hold for a special occasion.
A budget-friendly, butterscotch Chardonnay will be followed by an elegant Chianti, a fruity California Grenache and a delicious Southern Rhone-style blend.
We’ll wrap up with two new arrivals, The Paring Red Blend featuring some Screaming Eagle Oakville grapes and a winner red blend from Washington’s Columbia Valley.
Please join your Friday Night Favorite, Bill Callahan, and our wonderful tasters who make Fridays such special experiences!
