If you can’t make it to Thursday’s tasting you can come to our Uptown store anytime the following week and just mention Habitat for Humanity and 10% of the sales from the wine you purchase will be donated to this wonderful organization.
Saturday 10/28 from 2-5pm
Join us Uptown to meet winemaker Jean-François Coquard and taste his wines, and ask questions. Jean-François crafts lush and elegant French wines in Beaujolais in Burgundy. Since he only makes a few we decided to feature the suberb and refined wines of Tenuta Mazzolino where Jean-François was the winemaker for over ten years. Mazzolino is one of the best wineries in Lombardy.
