Evening Reading – Upcoming Events at the Caviste

by Mark Patykewich on November 29, 2018

Hello from The Caviste,
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend.  Although sunny, it has gotten cooler and red wines are really hitting their stride now. We have some more great tastings lined up in the store, so be sure to join us soon, the first is tomorrow.

Upcoming In Store Tastings
We have some great wines lined up to be poured by our distributors during the coming weeks.  Next Thursday, we will have a great selection of wines from Rise Over Run.  In December we will have three distributors coming in to pour wines that would make great gifts for the wine lover on your list.

November 29th @ 4:30
Rise Over Run
Liter bottles, sparkling wines and more, a great selection to taste through.

December 6th – Holiday Wines with Laurie Cole (Tyron Distributing)

December 20th – Holiday Wines with Jay Murrie (Piedmont Wine Imports)

Bordeaux and French Tour Presentation
December 17th – 4 to 6pm
One of the things we enjoy as much, maybe more, than sharing a nice glass of wine with friends is traveling in wine country, especially when guided by those in the know.  Anne Jordan Boinet is definitely just such a worthy guide, she has lived in Paris, Barcelona and now Bordeaux.  She is a trained chef and has not only a wonderful palate but a delightful personality as well. She is also the daughter of Kimrey Jordan, the former source of our Friday bread sales.

So join us on December 17th (yes, it is a Monday) from 4pm to 7 pm as we host Anne Jordan Boinet. With family in Winston-Salem, Anne has spent the last 15 years living and working in Europe.  She recently started a travel business in her home region of Bordeaux and will be in the store on December 17th to tell us more about trips future and past. We will have a selection of Bordeaux wines to taste and possibly even some delicious foods to go along with them.

RSVP needed so we know how many to plan for as we will have food and wine to sample while hearing more about Anne’s travel services, upcoming trips and insights into French travel and wine region exploration.

Magnum Variety!!

During the Holidays, one quick way to add a festive not is to open large bottles of wine!!  With Winston’s largest selection of Magnums, we can find one that is perfect for you; either for a large meal or as a wonderful gift!  Magnums are only two bottles of wine, but also only one cork so there is more time to spend with your guests.  They also almost intrinsically say “celebration.”  We have bottles starting at $32 and ranging from Prosecco to Champagne. So from white to red and including rosé, we have something unique, different and delicious for your dinner table. Add some magnum fun to your next event!

Happy Holidays,
Russ and Mark
