It’s busy at Westport Rivers. Here is what we have going on:
This August we continue hosting our Wine Education and Tasting Seminars in our Wine Bar on Wednesday evenings. These casual seminars will last an hour or two and will highlight a wine, wine making or vineyard related topic and will always include an informative wine tasting.
Our amazing staff led by aficionados Corey Nuffer and Elizabeth Koczera will be your “guides” for these evenings. We will also have some additional surprises for attendees.These are free for wine club members (well, actually wine club members pay $10 but receive a store credit of $10 to use that evening) and ONLY $10 for non-members.
Space is extremely limited so we encourage you to sign up as soon as possible.
Feel free to sign up for one or all. To register please call the store (508-636-3423 extension 2) and a staff member will take your credit card information. Be sure to let them know how many people will be in your party. You may also stop by the store and register during our regular business hours. Once you have signed up there are no cancellations so please make sure you are able to attend. If you have any questions please email:firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the schedule:
August 20th. 6pm-8pm “You can smell one trillion things!”
It’s true, but mind-blowing, right? We’ll be narrowing that down to what’s based in our in-house aroma kit of 50 aromas that will always be located in the wine gallery, a little bit of euroscience and blind tasting of several of our varietals.
August 27th. 6pm – 8pm “Sideways: A wine-based analysis”
Perhaps you’ve heard of this film? Nominated for five Academy Awards and winning for Best-Adapted Screenplay, this film not only helped to popularize Pinot Noir (as it should be) but also touches on other aspects of winemaking that we’ll examine. We’ll even need to taste Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to truly understand the film.
SUNSET MUSIC IS ON! Shows are on FRIDAYS (and some Saturdays) from 6-8pm except for the September shows which are 5-7pm. Our line up this year is amazing!
