NAPA VALLEY CABERNETS – “Best Buys For Under $25.00” Thursday, September 29 thru Sunday, October 2 2:00pm – 5:00pm (4:00 till 7:00 on Thursday) $5.00 per person

We’ll sample Napa Cabernet Sauvignon sleepers that are good values and would make great gifts or party wines for the upcoming holiday season.

*************************** WINES OF PIEDMONT- “Italy’s Northern Treasure” Thursday, October 6 thru Sunday, October 9 2:00pm – 5:00pm (4:00 till 7:00 on Thursday) $5.00 per person

Piedmontese wines have been called powerful when referring to their Barolos, food friendly when matching Barberas, and easiest to drink with their Mosacto d Asti. We’ll taste all these and others as we explore one of Italy’s most famous wine regions. *************************** O’BRIEN’S OKTOBERFEST – “Premium Beer and Riesling Tasting” Thursday, October 13 thru Sunday, October 16 2:00pm – 5:00pm (4:00 till 7:00 on Thursday) $5.00 per person

We’ll deviate from our regular wine tasting this weekend as we celebrate Oktoberfest with a sampling of special imports and micro brews. Bring on the brats and pretzels. And for the non beer drinking wine enthusiasts we will feature a selection of Rieslings from around the globe.


MERLOT, MALBEC, AND CABERNET FRANC – “Underappreciated Reds” Thursday, October 20 thru Sunday, October 23 2:00pm – 5:00pm (4:00 till 7:00pm on Thursday) $5.00 per person

Often overlooked, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc are three important grapes that can stand up on their own. Here is a chance to taste favorites from a number of regions that are very friendly wines that match well with a number of cooler weather foods.


UNDER THE TUSCAN SUN – “Wines of Central Italy” Thursday, October 27 thru Sunday, October 30 2:00pm – 5:00pm (4:00 till 7:00 Thursday) $5.00 per person

Take a trip to the rolling hills of central Italy as we taste wines of Chianti and its neighbors. Sangiovese is king in this region, but Tuscan blends that include Merlot and Cabernet are becoming popular.

Nicasio Valley

With the growing interest in organic products, here is a new certified organic California farmstead cheese from Nicasio Valley in west Marin County. Handcrafted in their nearby creamery the family uses authentic, traditional recipes from the alpine village of our ancestral homeland, Maggia, Switzerland. It is a soft ripening cheese made in 3 inch rounds and aged for at least 5 weeks. It's a delicate, lightly washed rind cheese with a powerful aroma and a rich pleasant flavor. On these warm summer days consider serving with your favorite session beer or a citrusy Sauvignon Blanc or Albarino.

            "The Wine Guy"

 Lodi has become a popular wine country destination for many of our patrons. But most think of the region as a red wine haven. Over the past few years Lodi has established itself as a leader in producing memorable dry whites, and especially from the lesser known varietals such as Grenache Blanc, Albarino and Verdelho. Some of our favorite producers include St. Amant Winery, Bokisch, Oak Farm, Harney Lane and our newest arrival, Acquiesce Vineyards, who only produces white wines! Check out these award winning wines and enjoy the white side of Lodi.
