Wine Tasting

It's no secret that, in many cases, old is best (like the traditional French vermouth pictured here). But, new is wonderful too! Our new wine rep with Easterly Wine, Jess, is a powerhouse of knowledge and she'll be joining us to show off some beautiful wines, most new to our shelves, this coming Thursday. See you then. Cheers!

Disco Wine Tasting!

It's been a while since we've had a good ol' disco tasting (as in discounted wine, not the music, though who knows what we'll be playing). Come by this Tuesday to try some great value driven wines, stock up for the approaching final days of summer, and have some fun with us. Cheers!

Italian Wine Tasting

You've all been so patient. We've been preoccupied (who knew opening a restaurant would be so much work?) but we're finally hosting our first wine tasting in well over a month. Justin from National Wines will join us to show off some beautiful Italian wines. From frizzante, every so sparkling delicate white blends, to a stoney, brooding Aglianico, we've got a wide range of hand-crafted wines to share with you. Thanks, folks, so hanging in there while we get back in the rhythm of things. Cheers!

Cali Wine Tasting!

We're picky with our Cali wines, so if we showcase a whole lineup of wines from one producer, you know they're gonna be good! Terre Rouge and Easton Wines are part of the same project that produces small quantities of awesome, artisanal wines. They're located in the Shenandoah Valley in Amador County, as are their small vineyards and a few other growers from whom they source. Come check em out. Cheers!

Wine Tasting with Kivelstadt Cellars!

Yes, it happens very seldom, but a winemaker is coming to Maine, and actually venturing north of Portland. Kivelstadt Cellars is fast becoming one of our favorite California wineries for their elegant and restrained wines, a departure from "traditional" Cali wine. Sam Baron, their winemaker, will be coming up to share his beautiful wines with us. It'll be a great opportunity to learn, listen, ask questions, and drink nuanced, small production wines. Cheers!

Spring Wine Tasting

Alright alright, we've been slacking on the tastings lately, but we've got a fun one lined up for this Thursday. Someday things will be green in central Maine, and so we're showing some spring-friendly libations in anticipation of that glorious day. Wines that herald warmer days shall be drank, and we're throwing in a couple curve-ball, non-traditional offerings. This will also be our first tasting with the wonderful Hannah from Pine State!

Portuguese Wine Tasting

Join us and Justin from National Wine as we explore Portuguese wine! Portuguese wines are sometimes relegated to bargain bins, discounted by many as lacking the curb appeal and complexity of wine from other regions. While it is true that there's some mediocre wine cranked out of Portugal (for a lot of reasons), vast riches await those willing to look just a little deeper into the world of Portuguese wine! You wont be disappointed. Cheers!

Wine Tasting with Devenish

Welcome to our Tour de France (minus the athleticism). We'll be touring France via bottles of beautiful wine produced by farmers and small growers and perfectly fitted to Thanksgiving and cold weather fare! A jaunt to the Rhone, a quick trip to Loire, a stop in Bordeaux! We'll be joined by some good folks at Devenish Wines (who will likely pronounce everything far better than David and Josh). Cheers!

Oregon Wine Tasting!

Join us and Sigrid from Easterly Wines as we explore Oregon! Oregon produces some beautiful wines, and a great many are small production and employ organic/natural methods. While our last tasting was driven by value wines, we're pulling out the stops here to show you some beautiful, more special occasions wines made by dedicated, small family growers...and just in time for Thanksgiving! Cheers.

Wine Tasting!

This Thursday we'll be sampling some goodies in the shop, so come on by! While this won't include as many crazy deals as our famous (or infamous?) disco tastings, we will be showing wines that are awesome deals below standard markup. We bulk up this time of year, and inventory is high, so it's a good time for a tasting. See you Thursday evening!

Cider Tasting with Rocky Ground Cider

Rocky Ground tasting, take 2! We had Angus and Abbey in last fall to sample their badass ciders, and we're having them back again to show us their new vintages. They use primarily wild harvested apples and allow for spontaneous fermentation with all their ciders. Long story short, their stuff is legit and uber tasty. Join us for a taste of Maine heritage!

Spanish Wine Tasting with Devenish Wines

Join us and Lisa from Devenish Wine as we take a trip to Spain. Spain has just as much to offer for quality and diversity of wines as any other wine producing nation. From the arid plateaus of Manchuela to the deep green hills of Galicia, Spain's diverse ecology and deep traditions shine through in its wine. We'll drink a bit and see for ourselves! And as is often the case, most of the wines we'll sample are either organic or biodynamic, and low intervention. Cheers!

Dont Forget My Wine....Tasting!

There are a lot of dominant trends in the world of wine, and anything that deviates from those trends can get overlooked or forgotten. But, those are some of our favorite wines! Doesn't the Broc Cellars Tasting room (pictured here) look like a half-forgotten secret? Like most things in life, if you've gotta search for it, it's usually better. Natural wine from California? Chardonnay that sees absolutely no oak? Red wine from Peloponnese? Yes please.

Tasting with Spanish wine producers!

Join us this Tuesday with Marcel Sabata I Coca from Castellroig, and Ricardo Esteban from Valderiz Bodega! While we often have wine distributors and sometimes importers in the shop, it's pretty rare to meet the people that work, hands on, with the wine everyday. Come hang out, drink some wine, ask the nerdy wine questions that only the real pros know the answers to. See you then.

March Madness Tasting: Wine and Beer

The Ides of March, March Madness, in like a lion and out like a...lion. However you slice it, March is a weird month. So, this tasting is just as confusing. We're throwing some sh#t together and we hope it brightens your day as you go home to, as some of us will, continue to dig out from this last storm. Wine, vermouth, beers for both winter and spring since we're not sure which it is right now...we'll have a little bit of everything. So, come join us. Cheers!
