Summer of Riesling and the Taste Makers

Starting on June 21st you will notice that, all of a sudden, a number of restaurants around the country have been transformed into temples of Riesling worship.  Perhaps, you will look at their wines by the glass and you will find it odd that they are offering three or four, or maybe ONLY Riesling for their white wine selections.  Some of you will say, 'I hate Riesling, it's so sweet,' others will say 'Riesling is not a serious wine,' or 'Why do you have so much Riesling by the glass?,' and...

Greek Wines for June

Part of our inspiration for the Village's monthly wine themes is to bring attention to wines that don't get the attention they deserve.  With each month we provide information, fun anecdotes, and lots of opportunities to taste great wines from all over the world, and in June, we are very excited to feature the wines of one of the oldest European winemaking cultures, the wines of Greece. Wine has been produced in Greece for over 4,000 years, and was such an integral part of ancient Greek... Full Post >

Did you know we are featuring a new wine region throughout the Village Center each month? Read about what we did in March!
