*3 Bottle Wine Package Descriptions….

Revelry Vintners “The Reveler” 2012, WA – 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc, 12% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec. “Since the first release of the 2007 vintage, ‘The Reveler’ has embodied a non-traditional approach to blending. Each vintage is uniquely its own, the only rules being the wine is comprised entirely of only the original Bordeaux varieties  and each release is better than the last. ‘The Reveler’ is a rich and dynamic wine, with layer after layer of flavor.”

Domaine La Croix Belle 2014 Caringole Rose, France. Syrah and Grenache. This lively, fruity rose is filled with ripe, juicy fruits, rose petals and pear drops.  Pale ruby with violet reflections. Intense nose of rose petals and pear drop candies, with a ripe juicy acidity in the mouth. This rose pairs perfectly with mild Asian-inspired dishes, BBQ and grilled meats. A perfect picnic wine as well!!

Bortolomiol “Miol” Brut Prosecco, Italy. 100% Glera. This simple, luscious wine comes from the from the rich, sun-kissed lands of Treviso. This highly drinkable wine is perfect between meals with light snacks and among friends. One of our new favorite Prosecco’s (we are picky with our bubbles) – it’s light, dry, airy, rustic and lovely.

Vin Wine Club update:

Our wine clubs have been a big hit, with people asking if they could be once a month (instead of every other month). With all that interest, we decided to make the change. Which we are very excited since we are constantly finding new wines we want to share. Prices are the same, but will now be once a month!
*For our current Vin Club members, you may opt to keep your every other month if you would like. Just let us know to keep it the same and we will make note. If we don’t hear from you we will bump you up to every month! This will start in February.
Club Options:
4 Bottle Club – $60.00
6 Bottle Club – $85.00
12 Bottle Club – $160.00

Washington Wine club: A case three times a year of WA only wines. We pick an AVA (American Viticultural Areas – we have 13 of them) and you get 12 bottles of wine from that appellation. A perfect way to try out all that Washington State has to offer! Price will vary depending on wines. You can chose all red, white or a mix. Shipments will be February, June and November. Email us for sign up vinwineseattle@gmail.com. Prices will vary for each case, however we will work to keep the cost at around $250.00 or lower.

November is here….

10347646_294911534037839_5989585292360512603_n

 

November has arrived… and so has the holiday wine season. You all know about our wine tasting services we offer, along with our  fantastic Vin clubs. But do you know you can buy wine from us? We are literally your one stop wine shop! With a minimum of a 6 bottle purchase we will deliver your wines, to you, for free (within a 15 mile radius of Seattle, outside of the radius there will be a delivery fee). If they are gifts, we will even wrap them for you!

The cool thing about Vin Wine and Events is that we have an unpretentious outlook towards this big world of wines. We understand it can be daunting for a consumer. We want to make wine fun for you, which is what our tastings and Vin clubs are all about. We search for wines that tend to be hard to find, family run, small vineyard and offer an amazing value. We are a small, family run business ourselves, therefore we take pride in supporting other small businesses. With that, let our wine specialists do all the work and you  Discover. Sip. Savor…..

So, with Thanksgiving just around the corner, we have wines that will pair perfectly with your turkey dinner (or tofurkey, which ever you prefer)! Here are some of our recommendations (All are available for purchase). We have new wines being delivered daily, so keep an eye out on Facebook and Twitter. We will also be offering specials on wines this month and perhaps a special Thanksgiving wine tasting!!

Here are a few of our favorites to pair with the holidays!

Piva Crement de Bordeaux, Brut, France ($21.99) – You always need a good bottle of bubbles, and this is a delightful, sparkling wine out of Bordeaux. A tight, effervescent wine that is full of floral, grass and nutty aromas. This is a perfect aperitif or will also pair lovely with your selection of pies and desserts for afterwards! If you decide to go with an unconventional holiday meal, this wine also pairs extremely well with egg dishes and sushi.

2012 Lucien Albrecht Pinot Blanc, France ($13.99) 100% Pinot Blanc.  Bone dry and unoaked with a soft dry fruit finish. Lime zest coupled with hints of mineral. It is the wine to drink at home as an aperitif or with all-casual family meals.  A great seafood and Thanksgiving meal companion.

Cavu Cellars 2013 Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley WA ($22.99). You won’t find another Sauvignon Blanc like this one. It has a touch of muscadelle de bordelaise that sets off the zingy finish with heavenly aromatics of apricot and pear and a delicious fruitiness. Light-medium bodied with some acid. Not only fantastic with turkey, but also is lovely with goat cheese, asparagus and fish dishes.

Locus 2013 Rose, Yakima Valley WA ($15.99).  A 50/50 blend of Mourvedre and Cinsaut, this rose is not just your summer wine. It is a wine to be enjoyed throughout the year. This is a bone dry wine, featuring a blend of strawberries and earth. A very well balanced wine and to also be enjoyed throughout your entire Thanksgiving meal. This is a rose your die hard red wine drinker will enjoy.

Paul Reitz Bourgone Hautes Cotes de Beaune, France ($24.99). 100% Pinot Noir. This is a charming, yet straightforward wine. A classic Burgundian; well balanced and priced very well. Not heavy or spicy. Will pair delightfully with beef. mushrooms, game, roasted turkey and veal.

** Vin Staff Pick Pelassa Barbera D’Alba 2009, Italy ($24.99). 100% Barbera. Ruby red in color and a fragrant nose with berry and vanilla. This is a full-bodied, well balanced, rounded wine. We like to call this wine classy. It has everything you are looking for in a Barbera. No wonder it was named Wine of the Year in 2010!! This is really one of our holiday favorites.

 Fill out the below contact form or email us your order (vinwineseattle@gmail.com) and we will get your wines delivered ASAP! Also, don’t forget to schedule your holiday wine tasting party with Vin. We are booking up fast!!

A Vin store front?

A Vin store front? Is that possible? We are hoping so! One of our long term goals is to open a store front and event space! Not only can we still offer in-home tastings, we can expand to offer you a shop stocked full of your favorite wines, a space for you to host events and even a bar where you can enjoy wines (and maybe beers) by the glass/bottle! No sure of the exact location, but still in the Seattle-area!

This isn’t going to happen over night. It may be a few years  away, but we need your help! We did the math and found out of we had 100 Vin Club members, that would make it financially possible to get the ball rolling. Only 100 members to get things started… and we are already 10% of the there!!! Of course once the store front is open, we will have a party like no other to thank all of you for being such wonderful supporters of Vin Wine and Events.

Check out our club options… we have various clubs to make everyone happy. 4, 6, 12 bottle option, as well as a Bubbly club and Washington wine club. Plus, wonderful other perks : Check out vin club for all the Vin Club details!

And with the holidays around the corner this is a perfect way to stock up on wines as well as making a great gift!

Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. Or would just like more information about the wines in our clubs. The next release is December 1st which will include some amazing holiday wines!

It’s beginning to look a lot like fall….

fall

 

It is officially September. Kids are back in school, weather is cooling, harvest has started and fall is around the corner. And while we mourn for those long summer nights, we are excited to see what the fall offers.

Well, we do know a few fall offerings….

This is the perfect time to set up a Vin wine tasting! Especially here in the PNW.  We still have lovely weather, which means weekend get-together’s outside are still possible. Most people are back in town now, so there is no excuse for someone to miss a party, book club, BBQ, Oktoberfest party or a general get together. A Vin Wine and Event wine tasting is a perfect add on to any fall soiree. We have our Vin Discover package for just $69.99 where we choose 5 lovely wines to Sip Savor and Discover. We take the work out if it for you! You can even preorder more of the wine (at a discount) so that way you can keep enjoying the wine with your guests.

We also have a Bubbles and Bites tasting, Savor the State tasting or our most popular the Vin Enthusiast custom wine tasting.

Visit our Vin Enthusiast/club page for more information.

Also – for the month of September, all teachers/school district employee’s receive 10% off a tasting. Our way to show some appreciation for our teachers!!

It’s also never to early to start thinking about the holidays (we have already begun tasting some Thanksgiving wines). Make sure to book a Vin Tasting to add on to any holiday party soon. We book up fast!!

Cheers!
