Value-priced wine pairings for the holidays

This year we’ve created some value priced wine packages to complement your holiday entertaining. You won’t find these wines at Vons or BevMo – they are from small boutique wineries and are specially priced just for the month of December.

 

Whites and bubbles:

  • Ventana Sauvignon Blanc, Arroyo Seco
  • Six Degrees Chardonnay, California
  • Tobin James Dream Weaver Sparkling Wine

Retail $58, Special Package Price $45

This group of wines is very food friendly. They are great with appetizers, salads and lighter entrees. Pair the Sauvignon Blanc with a nice seafood appetizer, the chardonnay with a salad or soup and the Sparkling Wine with really anything – it is so versatile.

Mix it Up:

  • Saddleback Cellars Chardonnay, Napa Valley
  • Highway 12 Cabernet Sauvignon, Sonoma County
  • Pierre Chanier Brut Sparkling Wine, France

Retail $78, Special Package Price $59

These wines are a bit more bold in flavor so the Chardonnay would work well with a richer soup, or flavorful cheeses.  The Cabernet Sauvignon can stand up to a holiday Prime Rib or Lamb.  And the French Sparkling will make a nice pairing with any dessert especially an apple pie or bread pudding.

RESERVE NOW

It’s all about Red!

  • Trione Pinot Noir, Central Coast
  • Siete Fincas Cabernet Sauvignon, Argentina
  • X Winery Red Blend, California

Retail $70, Special Package Price $49

Pinot Noir is a very food friendly wine. It can pair with a soup or salad, or something more significant like a salmon entrée or a mushroom dish.  This particular Cabernet Sauvignon is a great meat wine, from steak to prime rib.  And we love our blends, the X Blend is an easy drinking wine that could pair nicely with a roasted chicken or perhaps some delicious dark chocolate.

Happy Birthday to The Wine Pub!

Thanks to you, our loyal clientele, we are celebrating our fourth anniversary this month! It amazes me that time has passed by so fast. There have been many great memories made, new friendships found, and lots of wine and beer consumed, along with some delicious food. Thank you for getting us here, and here’s to the next four!

And in that four years, we are responsible for a few romances….and at least one marriage! Congratulations to Laura Godfrey and Scott Zagar who tied the knot in September. I think we’re somewhat responsible since they met at the Pub and celebrated many fun times while they were dating and engaged. Cheers to a wonderful life together you two!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the Bike for Boobs fundraiser we had for the Breast Cancer Fund in October. It was so successful and a ton of fun! We raised over $6,000 for the charity and will only continue our support for breast cancer charities in the future, along with Breast Cancer Fund, www.breastcancerfund.org. Check out some prevention advice on their website.

Cheers!
Sandy Hanshaw
