This Wednesday, James from Maverick Wine Company will be in the shop tasting out a few of his favorite wines including Elena Walch Pinot Bianco, Gramona Gessami, and Elena Walch Schiava. Gramona Gessami is a white blend from Spain with an aromatic nose of apricots, pears, citrus, and jasmine. Carrying a touch of acidity, the wine offers clean flavors of peaches and spice. The floral finish makes this a perfect wine to pair with sushi.

On Friday, The Noble Grape will be hosting a tequila tasting featuring Tromba Tequila! Created by Marco Cedano, Mexico’s preeminent master distiller, Tromba is a boutique tequila produced in small batches. Tromba’s sweet, fresh flavor exemplify Marco’s unique production techniques and passion for perfection. Be sure to stop by and sample this fantastic spirit, perfect for any summer party!
