It looks like we are in for a beautiful weekend here in Madrona. Here at the wine shop we are making it even better with summery sampling of tasty wines. Come have a taste and improve your weekend as well.
Saturday we have five pure varietals from Italy.
2017 Vallevo, Trebbiano $10
2016 Marangona, Lugana, Tre Campane $18
2015 Agostion Pavia, Barbera di Asti Moliss $20
2017 Anna Maria Abbona, Dolcetto di Dogliani Sori Dij $21
Barbolini, Grasparossa di Castolvente Lambrusco $15
Sunday we are cracking open two Rosés from “the Continent” to keep up with our warm weather.
2018 Regaleali, Le Rosé $14
Le Rosé offers delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry, blackberry, and, appropriate to its name, rose petals. Rich on the palate with refreshing acidity and a long, flavorful finish, this is what Sicilians enjoy in the summertime.
2018 J P Bourgeois, Elicio Rose $13
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
The Elicio has aromas full of fresh red raspberry notes, the palate confirms the aromas revealed by the creamy nose. Very fruit forward, this wine can be enjoyed with your everyday meals or by itself.
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.
