Embrace Your Wine Mouth: How Its Made - Davidson-Davie Community College

If you've been thinking about taking a deeper dive into wine and its making (not to mention your glass), there is a class through Davidson-Davie Community College to consider.

Led by the two Jessicas of Wine Mouths, this class will include a lot of information, as well as "mouths on" (ok, you'll be using your hands, too, so I guess "hands on" is also correct) experiences, including right in the shop with Chris.

There's still time to sign up, but classes start soon. Follow the link below for more information, and we hope to see you soon:

Thank you for your attention, and have a wonderful weekend.

It's Chris's birthday week! Go in, tell him happy birthday & have him give you 10% off your purchase (excluding gift cards) during our business hours this week. 10am-6pm today through Friday and 10am-3pm on Saturday.

There is, unfortunately, no bonus for getting his age right, but it's always fun to try!

06/15/2022

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Tastings will be closing at 3pm tomorrow (Thursday, June 16th). We will reopen the following Tuesday, June 21st, at our normal 10am.

Come on down to pick up your Father's Day presents before 3pm tomorrow.

We wish everyone a safe, happy Father's Day weekend; do your best to stay cool.

Hi there! Just a quick note to say that Tastings will be closing at 1pm tomorrow (Saturday, 4/9/22) due to an event. We apologize for any inconvenience and will return to normal business hours on Tuesday, April 12th.

Thank you and we'll see you soon!

02/15/2022

Alrighty. We are back up and running with phone and Internet once again. Come on by!

02/15/2022

Due to an internet and telephone outage, we are open with only cash or check transactions at this time. We apologize for this problem and hope our provider fixes this outage quickly.

01/18/2022

We are closed today (Tuesday, Jan. 18th); it's just too icy in the parking lot & in front of the shop to be safe for everyone.

Hopefully, everything will melt nicely throughout today and we'll be back up and running tomorrow.

Please be careful out there and we'll see you on Wednesday (or Thursday, Friday or Saturday 😀).

12/31/2021

Time is almost up for today (and, possibly thankfully, for 2021), as we are closing promptly at 6pm. We will reopen next Wednesday (not Tuesday) at our regular time, back to business as usual and ready to help you.

We would like to thank all of our customers throughout the year(s); we hope you have gotten as much, if not more, from our relationship as we have.

Happy 2022, all.

There's still time to pick up your celebratory vino for New Year's Eve! And we still have inventory, although that is changing pretty quickly (it has changed even since we took these pictures this morning).

We're open today and tomorrow (Friday, New Year's Eve) until 6pm, so swing by and let us help you find a fantastic, affordable luxury for saying good-bye to 2021.

12/24/2021

45 minutes until closing tonight. We wish everyone a very safe and happy holidays.

We will reopen 10am Monday morning. In fact, we'll be open from 10am to 6pm all next week for your New Year's libation needs.

Merry Christmas!

12/24/2021

There's still time! We're open until 6pm tonight. Don't forget that beer from Uncle Jack, and you know Aunt Jill is having you over for dinner; might be good to take her a nice bottle of something delicious.

Merry Christmas!

Another round of wines for that special someone on a special occasion. Both of these beautiful bottles are from famed Belle Glos Wines and are at a significant discount than if you ordered them online (like, to the tune of about 50% off). If you are getting together with family and friends, why not impress both them and their taste buds?

Wednesday. Not to put anxiety into anyone, but only 3 shopping days left counting today. We've plenty of special items all over the store to help you get through, but we have a few extra special bottles hidden away as well. Single bottles such as the 2010 Oddero Barolo (#39 in Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2014), or the 2011 Il Grigio da San Felice Chianti Classico Gran Selezione (#1 in Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 of 2015), both pictured below.

We're open until 7pm tonight and tomorrow, so come on by. We'll do our best to help your shopping experience and take away at least some of that anxiety. If nothing else, we're betting a glass of something we sell can.

We only have 3 of these 4-packs left, but it's hard to turn down any Ten Fidy (much less a vertical of 2015-2018)!

12/21/2021

We haven't forgotten all the wine enthusiasts this holiday season. For example, here's a 2007 McCrorie Family "Burly" Cabernet magnum (regular 750ml bottle shown for scale) from Napa Valley. A delicious wine Chris has been holding for just the right time. Just one example of special wines we're pulling from the "cellar" this year, because we could all use some special right now.

Open from 10am-7pm today through Thursday, and 10am-6pm on Friday.

12/20/2021

We know the bottles look similar or even the same, but they do vary slightly. This is the last of the 2013 through 2016 verticals we have of this fantastic Russian Imperial Stout from Bell's. We haven't tried it this year, but can tell you that the '13 was still amazing last year. There are only 5 4-packs, so when it's gone, it's gone.

There are a few other vertical packs we have put together for that special beer fan in your life, and we've stocked a number of special wines (in addition to the excellent ones we already carry) so come on in for your festive needs.

We are open 10am to 7pm today through Thursday and 10am-6pm Friday.

12/16/2021

Just a quick reminder that we are open today (Thursday) and tomorrow from 10am to 7pm, and Saturday (Dec. 18) from 10am to 6pm. Stop by to pick up something delicious...for you or your loved ones.

Here it is: the last one on the "List to Read While Listening to Liszt Eat Lintz". Congratulations on getting through to this part past all the punny stuff.

Before the final wine details (and we will post more pics through the remainder of the holidays...just not all the wine notes), a reminder that we are open today until 6pm, closed tomorrow for Christmas, and will be open 10am-2pm on Saturday, Dec. 26th. On to the notes:

Perfect for that celebratory toast or a morning-after Mimosa, this Extra-Dry Prosecco (so slightly sweeter than Brut – we know…it’s confusing) is a sparkling wine made by natural fermentation. It typically has a fruity bouquet reminiscent of Golden Delicious apples, with a hint of banana and peach, at a very reasonable price.

We're back and open until 7ish tonight to lend a hand with your holiday cheer(s)! Penultimate listing from the "Ultimate List of Ultimate Wines Available For Penultimate Shopping":

Probably Kristin’s favorite wine of all time, this almost all Cabernet Sauvignon (with just a bit Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot, Merlot and Malbec) creates a powerful wine aged in Chateau-style French oak for 18 months. Raspberry and cherry with some oaky vanilla and sweet spices round out a fantastically lush palate, structured with just enough tannins to keep from becoming some kind of fruit bomb.

A longtime favorite in the shop, this Zin (w/ a touch of Carignane & Petite Sirah) is organically grown and sustainably farmed. Aromas of black cherry and plum combine with a hint of cigar box and vanilla-oak baking spice. Creamy and round, this wine from the “Queen of Zinfandel” has a long finish with lush, jammy fruit.

12/22/2020

Onward with the "Naughty or Nice, We're Drinking This Twice" list:

A red blend from Eric Jensen of Booker Vineyards (40% Cab, 22% Syrah, 14% Petite Sirah, 10% Cab Franc, 10% Malbec, 4% Petit Verdot), this wine comes in a 14.9% abv. That hefty weight is matched by powerful aromas and flavors of ripe black fruits, dark chocolate, to***co leaf and Asian spices.
