Special Holiday Cameo by WWs Xmas Poodle
  • Special Holiday Cameo by WW's Xmas Poodle
As you would expect, the wine tasting schedule is pretty light this week. Not that folks aren't slamming the liquor stores buying gifts for loved ones and provisions for personal consumption. The parking lot at Frugal MacDoogal's earlier this week looked like Cool Springs Galleria, but with much better options like Flyte, Jackalope and Yazoo Brewhouse instead of Ruby Tuesday to offer a respite in between gusts of commerce.

But remember that Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, so there will be NO PLACE FOR YOU TO RESTOCK YOUR SUPPLIES in case Uncle Jimmy Wayne drinks all your good hooch or you need to deaden the pain from the holiday Pictionary tournament. Get your shopping done today or tomorrow. You're welcome.

If you happen to be taking today off like the rest of the civilized world, you could always spend the afternoon tasting through some of your friends at Vinea's favorite wines of the year. Drop by their shop on 12th Avenue to enjoy some holiday cheer.

This week we're moving our regular Saturday tasting to Friday (Dec 23) evening 5-7pm. If you're last minute shopping or wanting to relax and try some wine we've got a few new things we'd like to share with you to taste. We'll be open Saturday, but just no tasting.

Friday we're tasting some new wines, a few even on the 7 for $70 Rack, where you pick 7 wines out of the 15+ to choose from, retailing anywhere from $10-$16, and then they all magically become $10 bucks!

Here's what's on deck for Friday, Dec 23th 5-7pm:

Yvon Mau Colombard/Chardonnay - France, Cotes De Gascogne - $10
Cantine Valpane Barbaera - Monferrato, Italy - $17
Yvon Mau Merlot - Vin De pays De L'Aude - $10
Gladium Tempranillo - La Mancha, Spain - $14
Fescenino Tempranillo Duero, Spain - $16
Ch√Ęteau Le Cluzeau - Bordeaux, France - $13

AND all our tasting wines will be 15% off these prices for joining us at the tasting on Friday!

Sounds like a good way to spend a holiday to me. Until next week, have a safe and happy holiday!
