Right now, I’m sitting in an office, staring at a screen with an outlook calendar and another with a website performance chart. My brow is furrowed, my gaze intent. And to anyone passing by, I look like I’m deep into something really “workey”…And yes, I realize that “workey” is not a real word…yet.
Lucky for you, this is all a ruse. I never furrow my brow when I’m actually working. I’m really thinking about wine (don’t pretend you’re not…it’s 3 o’ clock on a Friday).
This week, we’re tasting Langetwins Winery out of California. The thing that caught my eye about this winery? Every bottle is only thirteen bucks!
That’s hard to top. I’m pretty sure the wine that comes in a box is ringing up steeper than that these days and this is a recession! I’m trying to save you some coin. At these prices, this is a good wine to stock your wine rack with. Buy a mixed case and receive 10% off. Wine club members, you get 15% off.
You’re not a member? Don’t look at me with those big puppy dog eyes, I’m a sucker for that. Just go to www.de-vinewines.com and join up!
Another thing I like about Langetwins is that they’re a fifth-generation farming family. I’m told they’ve been making good wine perennially, or for my less vocabulary-equipped friends, they’ve been making it for a while.
We’ll be tasting the Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This excited me too because I actually know what these are. The tasting will be from 1-4 Saturday afternoon. This is a perfect start to a date or just an escape from the kids while they throw water balloons at the cat.
Mention how awesome this blog is during the tasting and receive an extra 25% off your appetizers!
If you can’t make it, don’t sweat it, but if you can, it should be good. Plus, we’ve got 70-degree weather so that means you can sit out on the patio with a glass of Chardonnay and watch the people walk out of hot yoga expecting relief, realize that it’s still warm outside, and then they’ll try to cry…although they won’t be able to because they just sweat out the reserves in their tear-ducts. Don’t get me wrong, hot yoga seems like a great work out, but it looks awful doesn’t it?
I don’t usually post the specials up here because…well…that requires a lot more work than I like to do, but they really have some good ones right now on the discount rack, and if you’re like me, during the summer you have more people over so things go quicker. Here they are, straight from the newsletter which you can sign up for on www.de-vinewines.com as well…notice the theme?
