Wednesday Only Happy Hour Special -- Half Priced Wine:
This Wednesday - February 23 -- our half priced wine will be a new wine just added to our list -- MonteVina Zinfandel 2005, Amador County, California. Our regular price is $7/glass or $28/Bottle. This Wednesday only, you can try this great new Zin for only 3.50/glass or $14/bottle. Wine maker notes: Montevina Sierra Foothills Zin is all about berry fruit and spice. Red currants and raspberries swirl with gentle hints of pepper and baking spices. Soft tannins fade away on a drizzle of raspberry sauce.

Next Wednesday -- March 2 -- our half priced wine will be another new wine just added to our list -- Llano Estacado's Viviana, Lubbock, Texas. Wine maker notes: Our 2009 Viviana is a non-traditional blend using aromatic white varieties. Grown in the hot climate of West Texas, these varieties exhibit the perfume of honey, orange blossoms and tropical fruit. Blending at the time of fermentation allows us to achieve an integration of these wonderful fruit flavors. With its fragrant nose, savory acidity and mouthwatering flavors, the Viviana will surely leave you wanting more. This wine will go well with a wide variety of chicken, fish or pasta dishes. Its aroma and bouquet will pair nicely with fresh fruits and vegetables.
