This Friday’s tasting is dedicated to all the mothers who taught their children about the benefits of drinking wine. Many of these children are now adults and loyal Stellar customers, so we love them all!. Our lineup includes great mother’s day bottles, so get one and make your Mamacita happy on Sunday!
Mother’s day weekend tasting lineup:
Villa Griffo Prosecco – NEW!
When I tasted this bubbly I said this is “the mother of all Proseccos”, and I mean it!. A Stellar Wine Company exclusive, this Italian sparkling has it all: flavor, color, body and lots of bubbles…a “must taste” gem!
Lusvardi Sparkling Brut – NEW!
This Italian wine really raises the bar when it comes to sparkling reds. It is perfectly balanced – not too sweet, not too dry- and very tasty. This is an outdoors wine best enjoyed chilled and paired with Burgers, BBQ or skewers on the grill - delicious!
Chateau Thileuley Red Bordeaux 2011 – NEW!
The latest addition to our growing Bordeaux inventory, this medium red delivers everything you’d expect from a right bank Bordeaux: plum and currant flavors, a dry, yet juicy texture and an elegant consistency throughout. Really nice on its own or with meat or cheese…a very food friendly, versatile French red!
Altos Ibericos (Rioja Crianza) 2012– NEW
This Tempranillo Rioja is a perfect wine to transition to a 60 degree weekend in Chicago. Once you taste this medium bodied, smooth, dry Spanish wine it’ll become your go-to red for the rest of the year. A crowd pleaser (it might please your mother too)!
See you all on Friday!!
