East Store Spring Wine Tasting

The Bloomingfoods East spring wine tasting will be held Saturday, May 4th, from 4 to 7 pm on the patio overlooking the lovely in-full-bloom garden center.

The tasting will feature many wonderful wines, with industry reps sharing information about them, including how best to pair them to your favorite food items. We'll also have a delicious assortment of cheeses and specialty meats from our deli.

As the seasons change, so do the wines and brews. We now have some fantastic rose wines in stock, such as the Domaine De Nizas and Chateau De Campuget, as well as others.

Refreshing lighter reds and whites are coming into stock as well, and if you were looking for that big red to wow your friends at a first spring barbeque, I will say that the Cigar Zin Zinfandel is just what you are looking for—and at $13.99, it's a great buy.

The brewers are switching to their spring and summer staples, such as the pales, blonds and pilsners, which I think is what this long hot summer to come is going to need.

See you in the East store wine and beer department—and at the wine tasting! Please bring your ID; you must be 21 or older to participate. The $5 charge for the event will be donated to a local organization.
