This do-not-miss event is one week before Thanksgiving, the same day that Beaujolais Nouveau is released.

Celebrate the 2019 harvest with us as we pour this year’s fresh Nouveau wines (they will really surprise you!), along with over two dozen selections of the serious stuff. Take a tasting journey through the region as we focus on world class producers imported by Kermit Lynch, Louis/Dressner. Jenny & Francois, The Source and more!

This is guaranteed to be a fun evening filled with incredible value and top notch wines that will be perfect to pour at your Thanksgiving table and other holiday gatherings! The cost is just $20 per person and reservations are required. Reserve your spot today before it sells out!
