THE BORDEAUX BLOWOUT TASTING PART IA (G) 1:00-5:00

Saturday, September 06
We decided to try something a little different.  We still  have a fair bit of  Bordeaux from top vintages and are looking to move some quantity. There isn’t a lot to look forward to coming over from Bordeaux for, what, the next three years?  So we’d presume Bordeaux lovers would rather stock up on better vintages (2005, 2009, 2010) and better values (2008).  To facilitate that, we’re going to open somewhere between 20-30 wines that we have in quantity and invite serious buyers to ‘come on down’.  The tasting will cost $50 but we’ll apply $49 of that (we have to charge by law) against same day Bordeaux purchases of $300 or more. We aren’t going for a typical tasting here, more like a trading pit with wine.

XXXIII ANNIVERSARY STAFF PICKS (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, September 13
As Winex moves towards one-third of a century, as has become a tradition, we will commemorate the time as we have done in the past with a selection of our crew’s favorite wines.  Our ‘well-seasoned’ staff will pick their favorite wines up to $40 and the ‘intrepid’ buyers (budget be damned) will throw in their lot and cobble it together for what is always a great show. Cost is $19.

XXXIII ANNIVERSARY BUYERS' PICKS (G) 1:00-5:00

Sunday, September 14
For more than three decades, we have distinguished ourselves most as the ultimate shrewd buyers, able to routinely find remarkable deals, emerging stars and diamonds in the rough.  Value has always been our motto and banner and we have generally stayed away from those big budget extravaganza tastings some folks do.  But it doesn’t mean we can’t do it once in a while when there’s a reason.  So we’re referring to this as a “quasi Ne Plus plus some other stuff.”  We’ll trot out some big-time scorers, but also some older things, some rarer things, and some things that have meaning in our own history. $79

BURGUNDY BASH (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, September 20
‘Bash’ might be a little strong as we don’t really have plans for any balloons or streamers.   But there will be plenty of Burgundy open as we have in mind the same program we did for the Bordeaux wines previously.  The cost of the tasting will be $50 but $45 can go against a same-day $300 purchase of Burgundy.  We’ll have both whites and reds on the table so as not to discriminate. We aren’t promising ambiance, just an interesting show and special prices.

CHAMPAGNE (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, September 27
What better way to finish off our anniversary month than with a little bubbly.  It’s a little earlier than we usually do one of our signature and most popular events but we wanted to make sure we got it on the schedule early this year.  Cost is $39.

OCTOBERFEST: RIESLING, ETC. (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, October 04
Sehr gut! It wouldn’t be a proper Oktober without one of our German wine Oktoberfest tastings and this particular round should be quite topical.  We’re anticipating having some of the 2013s in for this event, the second exceptional vintage in a row on the good side, but the second critically short vintage in a row with respect to quantity.   We will also have representation of German rosés as well as trockens as additional topics of interest gives the category of German wines a breadth it has never had before and we’ll fill in any holes (if there are any) with 2012s (oh darn!)SO kommen Sie auf (come on down!).  The typical Deutscher nibbles will be on the table as well.  Cost is $24.

PINOT PRINCIPLE (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, October 11
Time to see what’s shakin’ in Pinotland. It has been a very good year for Pinotphiles as the 2012 vintage has brought a plethora of interesting efforts from both California and Oregon.  As always, we worded the title to allow for some wiggle room in terms of perhaps choosing to pour some ‘foreign’ examples of the breed.  But in truth there is so much going on here in the U.S. of A. that we probably won’t have much cause to step over the line.  There will be 18-20 on the table. $29

CABERNET LEGENDS OF THE FALL (G) 12:00-5:00

Saturday, October 18
This is traditionally our last Cab tasting of the year so we usually try to bring some drama. Phelps Insignia, Opus One, and, hopefully, some of the first of the highly anticipated 2012s to hit the market. It’s too early to tell for sure what the exact lineup will be (though Phelps Napa 2012 and Ramey Napa 2012 should be in the mix).  But rest assured, this tasting is always a must event for Cabernet aficionados.  As always, we’ll include an assortment of cheese and nibbles to go along-side ‘The Legends.’ This is always a popular tasting so reserve early.  $49
