Tonight was the Shop the Block in Reading and I stopped by to check out the festivities. I went to The Wine Shop of Reading, one of my favorite local wine stores.
The store was packed with plenty of new wines. I was pleased to see that they currently have 9-10 different Portuguese wines. All of the shelves are full and this is the time to check out their new selection. They also have some new gourmet food items. There were plenty of people in the store this evening.
If you want to see the store, but not leave your house, then maybe you should watch TV Diner this weekend. Or maybe next weekend, depending on their schedule. TV Diner is doing a special on Reading and the Wine Shop was one of their stops.
Though you really should stop by the store this weekend. They will be having a free wine tasting on Saturday, from 3-5pm. The wines will include:
db Sparkling Brut - Australia
La Caplana Gavi - Italy
Clos des Rochers Riesling - Luxembourg
Villa Erbice Valpolicella - Italy
Camille Cayran Chateauneuf du Pape - France
Old Boy Tawny Port - Australia
They should have some cheeses and other nibbles as well.
The Wine Shop will be also be open on Sundays, from 12-5pm, through New Year's Eve.
