Saturday June 9th Wine
featuring De Ponte Wine Cellars
from Avalon Wine
Looks like the sun will be
gracing us with its presence tomorrow, so
please join us for some stunning wine from
De Ponte Wine Cellars.
I was impressed with
their Dundee Hills Pinot while attending the
Portland Indie Wine festival a few weeks ago.
Dense and earthy it is a great summer BBQ Pinot
(grilled flank steak over a warm eggplant salad
with basil comes to mind), or perhaps a good
complement to a BBQ themed Father's Day gift?
Aaron Nieman will also be
bringing a vibrant Melon de Bourgogne,
perfect for summer appetizers and a newer varietal
to Oregon. A nice change from Pinot Gris and
quite similar to Muscadet. There will also
be a pretty in pink Rose for those of us who
Fans of Domaine Droughin style
wines should definitely attend as Isabelle
Dutartre was the assistant winemaker to Veronique
Drouhin for 5 years before joining the De Ponte
Also in the store:
Celebrating graduation? We have a great selection
of Champagne and sparking for the special day.
Looking for some great
values in Italian reds and whites? This
Saturday, Vineria Italia will be pouring
some excellent wines, from a crisp and refreshing
Trebbiano to a Barbera d’Alba to a
decadent sparkling orange Muscat. Think
summer picnic with an Italian twist.
See you Saturday.
