Do you ever wonder what goes into the perfect bottle of wine? How much thought the winemaker puts into blending the perfect components? If so, then this is the event for you. Be a true winemaker for a day with Paul Bush, owner and winemaker, and be taught how to blend your own Quintet. Taste older Quintet vintages and learn as Paul explains how he makes this five Bordeaux blend. Then it is your turn as you taste and blend the five Quintet components from the 2015 harvest. The class fee is $25 per person plus tax and if you want to take your bottle of Quintet home, you can purchase it for $32 plus tax. Reservations are required.

Every year we complete our year-end inventory, and we uncover pesky little leftover cases of wine. They might be an older vintage that we are no longer selling, have crooked labels or a scuffed foil. The wine tastes great, but we need to clean up the cellar and that is where you come in. We are inviting you to this fast paced event where up to a 100 cases can sell out in less than 30 minutes. This is the event where we put out the wines on $5, $10 and $15 tables and each customer can purchase 3 bottles per vintage, per varietal. We will have coffee for those people lining up early as fans know it's a great chance to stock up your cellar with amazing wines.
