Seasonal Pairings and Fall Holiday Specials Countdown to Christmas.

Wine enthusiasts are always looking for an excuse to replenish their wine racks. And what better time to do it than the changing of the season? As the days become shorter and the nights draw in, your heating bills will go through the roof, and that brisk evening walk around the lake or through the neighborhood with the dog will surely be followed by a glass of soul-warming wine. While it’s impossible for us to prevent any of those tedious early morning treks in the dark to try and de-ice your car, we can help you make those dull rainy evenings more pleasurable.

Fall is a magical time of the year. There are the rusty colors and a hundred hues of brown and reds, the heart-warming stews, the greatly anticipated countdown to Christmas, and not to forget the wine.
