So many wines - so little time

Today we spent 2.5 hours at the Wine Expo. We don't stay much longer than that, because the trade hours are only for a short time. After the general public is allowed in, it gets hectic and crowded - and very difficult to "talk shop" (no offense!).

We focused on finding some good Malbecs, and Bordeauxs. We didn't get to try as many different styles as we had hoped, but we did manage to find some really interesting prospects to add to our eclectic selection. Besides, your palate can only handle tasting so many wines in a short period of time, so I think we did well.

Once I get my notes together, I'll post tasting information on a few wines that I found to be rather interesting.

If you attended - and found something in particular - please do share. We'd love to hear what you enjoyed.

Boston Wine Expo 2006

This weekend is the largest wine expo in the country: The Boston Wine Expo.
And we will be there, sampling wines that we can add to our already eclectic, and ever changing inventory.

This is a wonderful opportunity for you - our customers - to sample wines from around the world, and in bulk. Bring a notebook, and a pen - and be sure to not swallow too much of what you sip. This one weekend is an amazing crash course in wine so that you can find what you do - and don't like about different wines. Taste the difference between Syrah and Shiraz...sample unoaked chardonnays...drink an unfiltered wine for fun.

Please - let us know what you like!
Our goal is to help you find the perfect bottle to enjoy.

And I will be posting tasting notes on some of my personal favorites!
