Our Upcoming Wine Tastings and Special Events
Whether you’re new to the joys of wine or a long-time aficionado,
Great Wine Buys offers a variety of tastings: Friday Night Flights,
Saturday Samplers, and occasional special events.
Friday Night Flights
Enjoy a themed flight of five top-notch wines (with an occasional bonus pour for purchase) served with fine cheeses and artisan breads. Varying prices and no reservations required - come on by between 5pm and 7:30! Check the schedule below - we take one Friday night off each month.
Saturday Afternoon Samplers
Drop by, belly up to the bar, and enjoy a selection of new arrivals and old favorites from visiting winemakers, local distributors or our own favorites off the shelves. Our Saturday Samplers run from 2p - 5p and are always FREE!
It’s the 18th annual version of the Andrew and Jim Holiday Extravaganza. Vintner Andrew Rich will pour new releases (Pinot Noir, new Cabernet Sauvingon, etc.) while fine foods impresario Jim Dixon shares Italian olive oils, sea salt and good cheer, plus great gift packs for the holidays. FREE
We tasted a lot of amazing Champagnes out there over the last few months and narrowing them down to this list was both a challenge and a blast as always. This year, we’ll explore seven different vintages from both the big name houses and smaller growers, including new vintage releases from some of our favorites. Our best tasting of the year, this sit-down affair features an extensive variety of hors d'oeuvres and sweets to accompany the ten Champagnes.
