Women Wine Producers Series PART I
Thursday, March 5
March is Women's History Month, and I could not think of a better way to celebrate than by displaying my gratitude, respect, and admiration to the female producers behind some of our favorite wines here at the shop. To share with you their passion, perseverance, and dedication will be a treat for me.
This Thursday we are kicking off with:
Filipa Pato: Born in a wine-growing family, fifth generation winemaker, named among the top producers in Portugal. Inspired by Burgundy and driven by Baga.
Hélène Thibon: From Mas de Libian, which is nestled in the western hills of southern Rhône. Hélène is one of three daughters in a family that has owned and worked this property since the late 1600s.
Paola and Piera Rinaldi: From Barolo, maintaining the techniques and tradition of their ancestors for over 330 years.
I really hope to see you at this fantastic tasting.
At the tasting table: 5 different productions that I can confidently say you will enjoy.
I hope to see you Thursday at 6.

Wine Class - March 17
Learning the Language of Wine
Monday, March 17 at 6:30
Would you like to know more about wine but don't know the first thing about it? Have you ever wandered into a wine shop and become confused by a bewildering array of wines and didn't know where to begin? What is all that swirling and sniffing about anyway?
Selecting wine based on your own palate, rather than relying on price, eye-catching labels, or evaluations from magazines or critics, is a better way to purchase wine. During this 90-minute presentation taught by Samanta Ettore and wine educator Ron Homan, you will learn to evaluate three white wines and three red wines by sight, smell, and taste. This program is ideal for novices, as well as for wine enthusiasts looking to expand their knowledge.
Class is $42. Please call 978-749-9464 or stop by the shop to reserve your seat - only 6 available.
