Serious Roses and Fun Red Blends
We will taste two styles of wine. First, in the department of roses. Then, to the department of red blends. All from France or Washington. These are some extra tasty goods. We are welcoming back Melaric, an all-natural, super tasty, and biodynamic rose from France. We compare to 2 top shelf Washington roses: Two Mountain, and my personal favorite, Upsidedown Rescue! We then get into the red blends. More than one grape in all these fun red wines. You have to taste them to believe them!
So, come in to Humble Vine Tomorrow, Saturday October 27th. 4pm till the bottles are empty!!!

We start a bubbly, made of Cab Franc, from the Loire Valley in France. This is an all-natural “Ancestral wine”. No extra sulfur added, pesticides, or sugar. Dry and rich with an elegant style. (one our favorite bubbles). Made from a tiny producer in super small quantities.
