Pop-Up Tasting: Two Acclaimed Wineries; One Celebrated Vintner

Thursday, February 4, 4:30 PM - 6:00 PM

Novelty Hill and Januik are two independent wineries under the direction of Mike Januik, one of Washington State’s most acclaimed winemakers, but he’d rather you taste his wine and decide what you think of his winemaking for yourself. With literally hundreds of 90+ ratings to his credit, Mike’s wines have appeared on Wine Spectator’s prestigious “Top 100” list a dozen times, and in 2011, Wine & Spirits magazine named Januik “Winery of the Year.” Don't miss this opportunity to to meet estate representative Andrea Slichter and try some of Mike's celebrated wines!

To get you through this extreme winter weather, we’ve put together a selection of fuller-bodied reds, the kind of wines that we think are perfect for fireside conversation and comforting, slow-cooked meals. We know this is the time of year the big guns come out...cabs, syrahs and zinfandels but we wanted to showcase a few wines you may not have thought of. Stop by our Pop-Up Tasting this week and warm up with these winter wines.

Winter Cotés!

Languedoc has become one of France’s most dynamic wine regions with adventurous wine producers redefining traditions and creating some of the country’s most exciting wines. Jean Claude Mas of Paul Mas Estate is on the creative cutting-edge of extraordinarily, high-quality wines that remain affordably priced.

The 2016 Wine Debates

Saturday, February 20, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Inspired by the passion of the Presidential debates, here at Wine Cellars we have decided to have our own analysis – of wine! Our “candidates” are some mouthwatering wines from countries that were all once united under the Spanish Empire. From the bubbles and blends of Spain and the big reds of Portugal, to the Cabernet Francs of Argentina and the Bordeaux styles of Chile – we have a line-up that would satisfy any Presidential (wine) Cabinet.

Northern vs. Southern Hemisphere, Old World vs. New World, Mediterranean vs. Arid climate – whichever you prefer, come out and support your side!
