Noon - 4:30 p.m. - 16 wines to taste!

Summer officially begins on the 21st of June, and we're celebrating with 16 summer sippers and grill-friendly wines at our Annual "Summer Sipping" Festival on Saturday. Finewine.com is delighted to welcome back four of our favorite distributors who will be pouring 16 great wines (some completely new) for your summer pleasure. 

At Table 1 Davide Megna of Impero will pour a delicious selection of Italian wines perfect for the season: a refreshing and crisp Pinot Grigio-Trebbiano blend, a food-friendly Pecorino, an elegant Nero d’Avola, and a grill-friendly Montepulciano d'Abruzzo Riserva. 

Table 2 will feature Rob Garretson of Global Wines who will be pouring four outstanding Brazilian wines (!)   from Mioli winery: a refreshing Pinot Grigio-Riesling blend with great minerality, an elegant and balanced Reserva Chardonnay, a velvety Reserva Tannat, and a concentrated Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon.  Never tasted a Brazilian wine?  Here's your chance!  These wines are new to Finewine.com and Rob is excited to share them with you! 

Table 3 will be manned by Eric Platt of Artisans and Vines who will pour mostly Portuguese wines for your tasting pleasure.  He'll start with a silky and fresh white blend, then three gems from Portugal:  a lively, crisp Vinho Verde Rose, a light and zingy Vinho Verde Branco, and one of our favorite super-value red blends. 

And last but not least, at Table 4 our friend Wendy Wilder from Opici Wines will delight you with some California summer favorites, starting with a fun and delicious 375 ml rosé in a can (think beach - picnic - backpack!).  She'll follow that up with a well-balanced Chardonnay with juicy fruit and lively acidity, one of our "house favorite" California Pinot Noirs, and a truly crowd-pleasing red blend. 

This "Summer Sipping" Festival  is a great way to spend your Saturday afternoon -- put away the lawnmower, put down the watering can and come taste 16 wines with us, all for free!

As always, all tasting wines not already on sale will be 10% off all day!

If we lived closer to you, we would be there at this wine festival.  How fun to taste Portuguese wines!  I have had one or two reds from Portugal in our travels, but no nothing about them.  A

One of the most memorable wines I will ever forget was an amazing Portuguese Port that a friend brought to my home one evening.  No one does Port like the Portuguese!
