Wine Region of the Month - Tuscany

Throughout February!

When it comes to wine production regions that have stood the test of time, few can compare to Tuscany, one of the most-loved parts of Italy by wine lovers worldwide. Exceptional quality is the hallmark for Tuscany’s legendary wines, often demanding budget-breaking prices, but we think its Tuscany’s affordably-priced gems, with an emphasis on value that capture the essence and beauty of the Tuscan culture.

The Best Portugal Has To Offer!

Saturday, February 16, 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Portugal has famously been known for centuries for just one wine: Port. The Douro zone is changing and one fact tells all: over the past 15 years or so, about half of the wine production from the larger Douro zone is now dry, table wine. These emerging Duoro table wines can be thrilling and many offer some of the most dazzling wine values on the market today.
“Portugal is arguably the most exciting wine place on the planet today.” Matt Kramer, Wine Spectator

Pop-up Beer Tasting: Monumental Beer from Monument City Brewing Company

Friday, February 22, 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM

Six thousand miles separated brothers Ken and Matt, but good beer kept them close.

Ken was living in Baltimore while Matt was working overseas. Despite the distance, they spoke almost daily about new beers they had either tried or brewed. Shortly after, Matt came to Baltimore, and the two set off on their annual hike along the Appalachian Trail. It was on that trip they began discussing a family brewery; one that would become part of the Baltimore community. After their return, they put pen to paper, and Monument City Brewing Company was born.

Matt moved to Baltimore, and the two immediately got to work building a pilot brewing system and perfecting their recipes. Their focus was on producing honest craft beer using traditional American brewing methods.

Today, the beer that began as a conversation across two continents is ready for you to enjoy with your own family and friends. Here's to the things that matter most, and here's to great beer!

Pop-up Friday Paydirt Wine Tasting!

Friday, February 22, 4:30pm- 6:30pm

We really hit the "jackpot" with this knockout Paso Robles blend! The 2016 "Going for broke" Red is a succulent alchemy of old vine Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Mourvedre, Grenache and Alicante Bouschet that offers up an opulent package of black boysenberry jam, mocha and black tea. The wine sweeps over the palate with an unctuous, immensely pleasurable texture. Robert Parker says "Paydirt has consistently produced outstanding wine that merit serious attention."
