This weeks holds two tastings in store for you. First, on Wednesday, Gary from Southern Wine & Spirits will be pouring a fantastic selection of wines from France and Italy. The wine selection that evening will be perfect for pairing at any of the multiple BYOB restaurants in the vicinity. Then this Friday, William is tasting out several of his favorite wines. The tasting will focus on wine that is perfect for the upcoming season of spring (if it ever arrives). And while you’re here, be sure to take a peek at our bombastic beer collection. Playoff season is underway and what better to help celebrate your victories (or down your sorrowful losses) than a cold, crisp beer?
