RAISE A GLASS & LEARN A LITTLE!
Friday Happy Hour Tastings at Sugar Skull Cantina
Every Friday I'm hanging out on the deck at Sugar Skull from 5-7pm pouring 4 of my latest favourite wines. $25 buys you four 3oz pours or pay $7 to try a 3oz sample of one that catches your eye. We can chat about the wines or you can sit and let the stress of the work week float away.
Wine suggestions during your time at home
Since we are living in self isolation right now here are some wine related movies I love, along with websites/podcasts if you feel like getting nerdy, and of course some actual wines to drink while you are hanging out at home.
*Check out these movies: Uncorked, Bottle Shock, Red Obsession, SOMM
*These podcasts GuildSomm or Wine for Normal People
*This website winefolly.com
*These wines all available at the main liquor stores in PEI Benjamin Bridge NV sparkle $30.99 (yes it is a bit more expensive than Nova 7, but drier and higher in alcohol because if I am being honest a 7% alc during a pandemic just will not cut it). You can also order online direct from Benjamin Bridge with free shipping right now Click here
Rocca Della Macie Vernaccia di San Gimignano $16.99 (a great Italian alternative to Sauvignon Blanc, the intense grapefruit aromas will make you feel like you were outside even if you have not left the house in 3 days)
Bogle Petite Sirah $19.98 (this wine is $8 off right now and is bold, rich, and full of dark berry flavours)
Thank you for your continued interest in Stellar Somm Wine Experts, please stay healthy and safe.
