For Chaucer “April is the cruelest month….” In the children’s rhyme April’s showers bring ….”
But it is almost May, and beside flowers, allergens, and humidity, this is a month for Mom’s, the Kentucky Derby and Brides.What do Moms, Brides and the Derby have in common beyond roses?
Why May brings the start of Rose’ season. And at Valley Wine and Spirits have we got Rose’ for you.
We have assembled more than a dozen fine roses’ from around the world: Cote de Provence (Typically from Mourvedre, Grenache and Cinsault); Cote de Rhone (Grenache noir, supplemented with Mourvedre and Syrah); Rosados from Spain (mostly Grenache, but some of Monastrell and/or Mourvedre); from the Piedmonte, a Rosato driven by Nebbiolo; and, from the USA, a Pinot Noir blend.
Incredibly great Rose’ can be made from all of these varieties and from others as well. At Valley Wine and Spirits, we have spent the past few weeks sorting through dozens of these great warm weather tasters, looking for the best in taste, color, nose and value (hard work, but someone had to do it.)
To celebrate Mother’s Day, all the beautiful brides and their anniversaries, and not least “the Run for the Roses”, we are dedicating the Month of May to giving our great customers an opportunity to taste, experience and purchase these wines.
Every Wednesday and Friday during the month, we will offer a FREE tasting of two wines from this collection. After tasting on both Wednesdays and Fridays, we are inviting our customers to celebrate Wine Wednesday and TGIF by joining us for a glass, or if you prefer a flight of different premium Roses’, at special pricing, at our beautiful bar.
On Sunday, May 1, from 3-7, we are offering extensive tastings (3 substantial pours in each of two flights), and commentary on these remarkable wines.
For the Kentucky Derby, Saturday, May 7th, again 3-7, we will be reprising our tasting and will have the TV above the Bar tuned to the ‘Greatest Two Minutes in Sports.”
Throughout the entire Month, we will be giving our customers the opportunity to purchase these great wines at special discounts.
Join us in celebration of beautiful moms, brides and horses and, of course, our beautiful wines.
