Find Your Taste

Wine & Cheese Bar and Shop

Over and over, it is the small producers who impress us and it matters less where the wine comes from. We met Mi Terruño winemaker Maria Eugenia two weeks ago and tasted her delicious, small production, wines from Argentina.  We picked our favorites and you can taste them on today’s red flight.  Plus we are going deep into an exploration of Malbec on the top red flight. Start it off with three tiny production refreshing roses and Bob’s your uncle!

Craft Cocktails

This is the last event of the year and, we think, a perfect one to prime the holidays. There is no doubt a cocktail renaissance over the past few years and we want to teach you how to make some amazing creations at home. Tonight, with the help of mixologist Ricky Yarnall, we will be making you four delicious cocktails: Imbue & Cava, The Cobbler, Negroni, and Old Fashioned. You will receive a recipe sheet and learn how to make them at home. Join us starting at 6 pm and anytime up to 8:30 as the event ends at 9. Price $20 / $15 Wine Lab Club

CLOSED Friday October 24th after 5:30 for a private event
