MARCH 2015

LOST ‘N FOUND
Sunday, March 15th at 10am sharp!
Madroña Cellar

Here a case, there a case, we always have some oddballs!  Each year as we complete our year-end inventory, we uncover pesky leftover cases of wine.  They might be an older vintage we are no longer selling, they might have crooked labels, or they (heaven forbid!) might have scuffed foils.  The wine is great, but we need to clean up our inventory.  Can you help us?  Wines are sorted onto tables of $5, $10, and $15.  Customers are limited to 3 bottles per variety, per vintage and they go fast!  Be sure to come early!
