It’s a cool grey weekend here in Madrona, but “damp and cloudy” is not the description of our weekend tastings. We have a full line or bright and clear wines to try that will chase the grey away. We are also having the artist reception for our new show by David Kane.
Saturday, we are celebrating the upcoming harvest with a tasting of five Natural, Organic and Biodynamic wines.

100% Xarel-lo Vermil –
2017 Dolina , Guerila $19

Sunday we are pouring two affordable wines from Italy. We’ll start off with some late summer bubbles followed by a medium-bodied Nero d’Avola from Sicily.
La Biòca Ricciante $10
Freisa 85%, Barbera 15%
This extra dry Vino Spumante pairs well fish-based main dishes, meat or mushroom-based appetizers. Fresh, crispy, red berries, bell pepper, strawberry, lime, medium-body, high acidity, bone dry. Was $15, Now $10
2012 Curatolo Arini Coralto $11
Violets and red cherries, plums and hints of white pepper. On the palate this wine is medium-bodied with beautifully intense red fruit characters matched by delicate notes of spices and soft tannins.
Also Sunday from 3pm to 5pm artist David C. Kane will be at the shop introducing our new show Enigmas for Madrona. Stop on in, meet the artist and see the new show.
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.
