Each week I get an email from Astor Wine & Spirits and it makes me wish we had such a wine store locally. Many wine stores have wine tastings once a week. A very few have two tastings a week. This week, Astor has 4 wine tastings! And that is usual for them.
Let's look at their line-up for this week:
Thursday, July 26th: Tasting of some Spanish wines, Beaujolais and Tommy Bahama white and gold rums from Barbados.
Friday, July 27th: Try some French wines, small Italian producers, and a Bambu Mojito made from Bambu ultra-premium white rum, fresh mint, lime, and a splash of soda.
Saturday, July 28th: Try some Spanish wines, more small Italian Producers, and V2 VodkaGet, made of V2 energy vodka and lemonade.
Sunday, July 29th: Try some Muscadets.
All of the tastings are free and there are discounts for the wines being tasted. So why can't a local wine store give us as many options?
