Weekly Wine Tasting at Grapes & Grains Gourmet

Posted by  | June 11, 2010  at 5:17 PM  
Every Saturday from 1-7PM Grapes & Grains Gourmet--housed in their lovely new space at 110 East German Street--offers free wine tasting! Don't be fooled by the cost (or lack thereof), this isn't your grocery store's wine tasting. Grapes & Grains offers quality samplings that span the wine spectrum, are paired perfectly with gourmet cheeses, and you actually learn something in the process. The people at Grapes & Grains are not just trying to coerce you into buying a bottle of wine, they're giving you the opportunity to experience what their store has to offer. However, the chances that you'll leave empty-handed are slim to none.

Last Saturday, my mother and I were dropping off some things at R Design & Consign and decided to stop by Grapes & Grains to pickup some staples and sample some wine. There were four wines this week: chardonnay, riesling, pinot noir, and merlot.

I was very intrigued by French Rabbit's Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which are actually REALLY GOOD boxed wine--forget Franzia, think of them as delicious, eco-friendly, grown-up juice boxes. Not to mention, instead of the standard 750mL you get in a bottle, the French Rabbit boxes are 1L, so you get an extra glass or so in every box!

We also sampled a Fog Mountain Merlot and a Moselland Pink Cat Riesling. The Pink Cat wine comes in a bottle that is pink and looks like a cat: the bottle alone makes for a good purchase, but a portion of Pink Cat sales go to breast cancer research and it's a tasty wine, so it is an excellent purchase.

Paired with this week's wines were two varieties of goat cheese from Spriggs Delight Farm in Sharpsburg, MD--which is just across the Potomac from Shepherdstown. I sampled the Fruit & Nut and the Garlic & Herb, which were both incredible. I checked out the Spriggs' website, and I can't wait to go visit the farm and try their Pineapple & Jalapeno Chevre!
