We have beautiful Fall weather here this weekend in Madrona. And we have some beautiful wines to go with it, including sparkling wines both Saturday and Sunday. Come have a great weekend.
Saturday, we have a distinctly French line up that will make the transition to Autumn a pleasure.
Moncontour Sparkling Vouvray Tete de Cuvee $20
2015 Michel Vattan, Sancerre Cuvée Calcaire $23
2014 Vignerons des Monts de Bourgogne, Bourgogne Rouge $18
2011 Chateau Le Bourdieu Medoc $22
Dumangin, Ratafia Champenois $40
Sunday, we are celebrating the European Union with a sparkling wine from Piedmont and a rich red from Corbieres. Both have special pricing.
Borgo Maragliano Brut $12
From the Piedmont this is a non-prosecco bubbles. Fresh with bright acidity and steady effervescence. The aromas are of citrus fruit, almonds and the aromas of freshly baked bread.
Was $15 now $12
2010 Château Trillol, Corbieres, Cucucnan $12
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
Still drinking great. Aromas of red fruit, redcurrant, blackcurrant and a hint of oak. The front-of-palate is silky, evolving over the top of discreet but well-structured tannins.
Was $14 now $12
Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.
