This Sunday we will be tasting two lovely French wines.
2012 Paul Buisse Les Domaniales Rosé $9
A very crisp Rosé made from Cabernet Franc, Gamay, and Pineau dAnuis
with aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries and a slight herbal note.
2011 Galtier Garrica $10
A light and herby French red from the Languedoc named after the brush that grows there. 12.5% alcohol by volume
And just for the fun of it, let’s throw in an Italian Sangiovese in a box.
2010 Giacomo Sangiovese Toscana $30
Ruby red in the glass with aromas of cherries, plum and a hint of red currant. The palate is loaded with rich, dried cherry flavors that are backed by a note of tangy acidity and moderate tannins. This is an ideal mid-week red that is perfect with pizza, pasta, burgers and roast chicken. 3 liters which works out to $7.50 a bottle.
Artist’s Reception, Sunday August 3rd, 3 to 5 pm
Portraits: Man & Beasts
Hanging from July 3rd to August 31st
Artist Eden Hopkins presents six, lively and whimsical portrait paintings of dogs. Several of these lovable canines attentively make eye contact and feature their tongues lolling out. One painting showcases a Chiweenie dog, or a Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix mouthing a tennis ball, ready for play. These original oil paintings are created on 12″H x 12″W cradled panels.

Artist Laura Grover’s portraits of her family are a way of reflecting on the time spent with them. It’s a personal time with each individual, to think upon what they look like, conversations we held together and how we first met. Each paint stroke is intimate and comes with personal feeling. These paintings are just moments that gave me pleasure. Not all family moments will be remembered with such joy and surely need to be recorded.
