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 16, 4pm-7pm: Waiter, there's a rock in my wine!
As recently as five years ago talk of minerality in wine wasn't commonly spoken of by savvy consumers or even by people in the trade. Today, you can't read a tasting note or chat with a sommelier without encountering the term. Are there really rocks in our wine - or are they all in our head? We'll pour three "minerally" wines and talk it over. 


Friday, October 17, 4pm-7pm: Three Bottle Monte
You know three card monte as the fast and furious card game played on the streets of New York where the trick is to find the queen of hearts. In our version we taste three wines blind and see if you can pick out the one we're looking for: this week, the one from Bordeaux. It's fun and win or lose, no money changes hands. 


Satruday, October 18, 12pm-3pm: moJo Cold Brew
Come taste the New Orleans style cold brewed coffee that we can't get enough of! 


Saturday, October 18, 1pm-5pm: Saturday Miscellany
Stephen will be at the tasting table all afternoon pouring whatever strikes his fancy and ready to field your questions about wine and how to enjoy it.

Stop in to taste an array of different Sicilian honeys! Perfect for fall cheeses, on toast, or in tea.
