In-Store Tastings & Visits

One of our popular cheese tasting classes

We regularly welcome artisan producers to our store to sample out their delicious goodies - from cheese, to ice cream, to beer, to wine, to tea - and more! We also periodically host cookbook signings. And, Patti of On the Edge Knife Sharpening joins us generally once per month to tune-up folks' knives. A schedule of these events is below, and reservations are not necessary.

Please note that during wine tastings, customers are welcome to a 15% discount on cases of featured wines. For any events involving tastings of beer or wine, we validate legal age of our participants.

IN-STORE TASTINGS + VISITS 


Thursday, October 2, 4pm-7pm: Piedmont Casuals
Some of the world's most sought-after wine is made in the Piedmont region of northern Italy where Barolo and Barbaresco are royalty.
