Wine Tasting - Saturday 1-4PM, May 3

 There is a lot happening in our area today! Locally, we are celebrating the Dogwood festival up in Greenfield hill and the weather couldn't be more perfect. If only the Dogwoods would have bloomed a little earlier like last year. Oh well, we can't let it dampen our spirits on such a gorgeous day. 

At the store we have Vineyard owner Pablo de Simon visiting from 1pm-4pm to show us his line of wines and sign bottles if you like. William certainly is making a habit of getting these rockstars of the wine world to come by and show us their creations and you, our customers really seem to enjoy them. Today is another great opportunity to meet and ask questions to one such character.

At the same time...

We are going to be serving Blanton's Mint Juleps to our Kentucky Derby motivated friends. This past Wednesday we did a great Bourbon class that showed off the Sazerak portfolio and the Mint Julep turned out so well that we thought it would be fun to wet your whistle again before the big race. Great price $44.99

Finally, we have put all of our Cinco de Mayo beers on sale through the weekend in preparation for the big day. There are also a bunch of Tequilas at great pricing. 

This is the day to get out there and welcome spring by moving around town and stopping in to say hi to your friends here at Harry's!

See you soon

 Your host is Pablo de Simon – The owner of Bodega Valserrano in Rioja with wine info from the Bodega.

Blanco 2013                  $15.99
We use grapes from the vineyards situated at the highest altitude where they receive plenty of sunshine. Fermented and aged in new Allier oak casks.  “Silky and elegant, and yet long and lively”.

Crianza 2010                $15.99
An example of the best Rioja Alavesa Tempranillos.  “Fresh, tasty, powerful and long. To enjoy at anytime”.

Reserva 2005                $21.99
Selected from our vines for their quality and age.  “Powerful and complex on the nose and in the mouth. To accompany a tasty meal in good company”.

Graciano 2005              $39.99
Garnet-red with medium-high depth and little sign of evolution at the rim of the glass.
Expressive and typical of the variety of grape. When you swirl the glass hints of blueberries, cocoa, hay and milky nuances appear with a touch of minerality.
A wine which is still very lively, with powerful tannins. The red-berry fruit flavours and mineral tones reappear. A very long, fresh, flavoursome finish with reminders of lavender and wild herb.
