Well, the first month of 2014 is leaving us. Is it just me, or are the days passing quicker…must be global warming!
Saturday, February 1st will mark our second wine tasting event here at The Wine Shop in 2014. With Valentine’s Day fast approaching, we are featuring these four fun wines that would be perfect to give, receive and of course drink. The first wine is Françoise Montard Rosé. You can’t miss with this sparking Rosé from France. It has good body without being too fruity, as well as a nice light dry finish.
Our next selection, Kaena Hale Red, is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. It pairs great with either light dishes or desserts.
Our third selection is a new wine out of Napa Valley called Twenty Bench. This collaboration of Nine North Wine Company and winemaker Charles Hendricks is a perfect model of a Napa cab with great pricing. I am thrilled about this new find.
Our last wine has a very wild name, “Sexual Chocolate.” This Napa Valley multi AVA wine is a great blend of Syrah, Zinfandel and Petite Syrah. No it doesn’t taste like chocolate!
We hope to see everybody here at The Wine Shop from 5 pm until 7 pm this Saturday, February 1st.
The Wine Shop is open 10am to 7pm Monday through Saturday, and by appointment on Sunday. For more information visit the shop located just across the street from the Koloa Post Office, call 808-742-7305 or visit us online at www.thewineshopkauai.com.
