SPECIAL WINE TASTING: Geno Auriemma Wines with Kara Wolters Sat, November 16th 2013 Noon-2pm

Special Wine Tasting

Saturday, Nov 16, Noon to 2pm
Geno Auriemma Wines
with Kara Wolters
 UConn NCAA Champion, WNBA Champion, and Olympic Gold Medalist

We are pleased to announce that Uconn women’s basketball star Kara Wolters will be coming to Harry’s Wine & Liquor Market on Saturday November 16, 2013 from 12:00pm-2:00pm

After four seasons at Uconn from 1993-1997 where Wolters was a national champion, National player of the year and member of the perfect 35-0 Uconn women’s basketball team, Kara won gold in Sydney representing the USA and also played for WNBA’s Houston, Indiana and Sacramento teams.

Now, along with some of the other former Uconn players, Kara is helping her former coach to kick off his line of wines here in Connecticut. Geno Auriemma is paying homage to his Italian roosts by releasing these signature wines. The tasting will include three of his four wines, Prosecco DOC; 2012 Pinot Grigio; and 2010 Puglia Rosso.

We look forward to an exciting day of wine tasting while Kara meets and greets her fans. She has agreed to sign autographs and take pictures so bring the family along to meet one of Connecticut’s best known and most liked players as she moves from center court to the center of our attention in this fun event.

The Lineup:

Pinot Grigio 2012 $11.99
This has a pale straw color.  On the nose the wine shows fresh and fruity aromas of pear along with a hint of honey.  It has a round and smooth mouth feel that makes it an easy sipper, and the white fruit flavors are very pleasing.  A great choice to enjoy with fish and salads.

Prosecco NV $15.99
This sparkling wine has a golden straw color with fresh aromas of citrus and white flowers.  On the palate are more citrus notes along with a touch of grapefruit and some green apples.  It is a perfect aperitif wine with a crisp finish that leaves the palate clean and refreshed.

Puglia Rosso 2010 $13.99 
Ruby red in color this wine has very inviting aromas of cherries and spice.  On the palate it is medium-bodied with good acidity and flavors of black fruits, spice, and licorice.  It is smooth with balanced tannins and a pleasant finish.
