Free Wine Tasting

  • 5-7pm at CoolVines (Grove & Powerhouse locations)

  • One of my favorite regions the world over, Piedmonte, derives its name from its location in the foothills of the Alps. This unique locale provides the region with a terroir so diverse you can throw a stone and be in a different microclimate. While many of the wines remain light on their feet, the area carries a characteristic backbone of tannin and acidity that makes the wines of the area perfect for the winter months. Join us this Friday to explore some of the hidden gems of this iconic region.
