Free Wine Tasting
5-7pm at CoolVines (Grove and Powerhouse locations)
Producer Spotlight: Charlotte Dalton
Our first experience with Charlotte Dalton's wine was somewhat bittersweet. It was her last vintage of Wahine pinot noir before she lost the vineyard to wild fires that raged through so much of Australia. We're thrilled to see her back with a great new pinot noir sourced from the Deanery Vineyard in one of the best areas in the Adelaide Hills for the variety, Piccadilly, and a lineup of fun fresh wines inspired by the challenges of the last few years. We here at CoolVines can boast that we were the first in the US to taste these very recent arrivals, and we couldn't be more excited to get them into your glasses.

Raucous Caucus Tango is Artistic Director Samuel Pott’s latest choreographic creation, forged with a notable team of collaborators including GRAMMY-winning tango composer Pedro Giraudo, New Jersey playwright Alysia Souder, and Jersey City Poet Laureate-Emeritus and actor, Rashad Wright.
