Featured Wines of the Week


Recanati Yasmin Red, $14.89/750ml- 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. Yasmin Red is a harmonious, flavorful red from the sun-kissed Mediterranean vineyards of Israel. Yasmin is the perfect all-occasion wine. With its luminous fruit-filled aroma and flavor, Yasmin Red is a stylish wine ideal with cheese platters, savory dips and olives, as well as barbecue and spicier fare.


Rubus Red Blend, $16.29/750ml- From Tierra de Castilla, which is the wine region just south of Madrid in the heart of Spain, comes this dark purple, organic red blend of 70% Tempranillo and 30% Syrah that is actually made in a Rhone style (whole berry fermentation proceeded by skin contact). And in this incredibly compelling, fresh red wine from Fran Kysela’s Rubus Project, you can take comfort in the fact that all the international wines under this label are hand-selected, fruit-driven wines that are representative of their place and time and over deliver on taste and price.


Tilia Torrentes, $12.49/750ml- Variety 100% Torrontés

Vineyards Cafayate, Salta, North of Argentina

Fermentation Fermented at max. temp. 14-18ºC for 12-30 days, in stainless steel tanks. Alcohol 13,3% vol

Acidity / pH 6,15 / 3,38

Tasting Notes Pale yellow color with greenish hues. Intense nose of passion fruit, citrus and freshly cut grass. Fresh, concentrated vegetal and tropical flavors on the palate. Long and persistent finish.

Food Pairing The fragrant qualities of Tilia Torrontés have a particular affinity for dishes featuring aromatic ingredients like lemongrass, cilantro, ginger, and star anise. This wine would be a fantastic companion to any dish served with herb seafood sauce or just a simply prepared dish of Fish in Cilantro.



Buy three or more bottles of wine get 10 % off.

O'Fallon Pumpkin, $2.29/12oz-Don’t be fooled by mere pumpkin flavor… This is the real McCoy! We use soooo much real pumpkin in our mash that it adds hours to the lauter. But the result is incredible.

It is a cold pressed Madagascar Vanilla that delivers the perfect balance of Pumpkin Pie and Ice cream in a glass

Surly Sixteen, $15.99/16oz-It takes a measure of grit to persevere through sixteen years of business, and that ability to stick it out and keep pushing boundaries inspired this beer. The base beer started life as a strong red ale—not quite a barleywine but in the neighborhood. Then it laid down in a variety of barrels, including Parker’s Heritage Wheat Whiskey Barrels, Elijah Craig 12-year Bourbon Barrels, and a handful of ruby port casks to add a top note of complexity. Once the beer matured, we blended it with fresh strawberry and raspberry puree to add fruitiness and necessary brightness to this malty mosaic of flavors
