Dan, New Wine & Beer Tasting this Weekend! Friday 4:30-6:30 & Saturday 2-6 PM Kent Rosenblum, founder of famed Rosenblum Cellars, quit his day job to become one of the most famous winemakers in the world. When he first told people they called he "Stark Raving" mad. Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines announces three new innovation wine brands to the extensive DC&E portfolio. DC&E begins shipping Stark Raving, Butterfly Kiss and Rose'N'Blum wines, with nationwide distribution expected by the end of the summer. Inspired by the enthusiasm, and less traditional choices, of today's Millennial and GenX wine lovers, these wines deliver intriguing blends and varietals, at exceptional value with suggested retail pricing of $12 - 14. Stark Raving, wines by winemaker John Kane of Rosenblum Cellars, is a line of wines inspired by the idea of "going rogue". A firm belief that experimentation, unusual blends and sourcing, and a little touch of madness can lead to crazy good wines. Stark Raving Red is a big, juicy, novel blend of Tannat, Zinfandel and other red varietals. Stark Raving White is a full bodied, curvaceous blend of Chardonnay and Moscato. In the summer a nice place to beat the heat is Nantucket Island. Not everyone can go there, so we are bringing a


taste of it here this weekend with a signature beer of the island. Cisco Brewery!

Car Heat & Wine Don't Mix!!! Make Us the Last Stop When Picking Up Wine or Beer! You know how 100 degree days can be the bane of shoppers toting home ice cream? Well, the heat also can wreak havoc on wine! Wine is ideally stored in a cool, dark location to keep it from spoiling. A 75-degree store or room is certainly OK. A car that can reach temperatures well over 110 is not considered OK. If you happen to leave a wine bottle in a hot car, a sure sign that it has been affected is in the cork. Heat will make the contents expand and push on the cork. Enough heat and the cork will push out. I have never seen a bottle so exposed to heat that it completely uncorked the bottle. But if the cork is sticking out beyond the top rim of the bottle, it probably has been tainted by the heat.


Such heat damage will certainly change the wine, but it may not ruin it. Just let the wine settle for a few days and pop the cork and try it to see!

Check out our website! You can look at the list of wines and beers we have on hand, past events, area restaurants, past Grapevine Newsletters, gift registry, daily updated news about happenings in the wine world and much more. Request for special orders for wines, beers and request for donations may be made through the new website. Vine11.com for all you wine emergency needs! Easy to remember and easy to navigate. No one in the CSRA has a larger selection of wine! We beat our competitors by having twice the brands to pick from. And pricing? Well shop around and compare. We buy most of our wine in stock and pass the savings on to you. If you can get it less some where else, we will tell you where. On top of all this we take the mystery out of wine by having weekend tastings that you will not find in liquor stores. often our tastings are catered by local businesses and restaurants. We also have special in-house tastings with winemakers and vineyard owners plus wine dinners at local restaurants. Cheers!
