Chatt Wine News Nov 13th

The Wine Shop is offering 10% off their selection of Cotes du Rhone wines this week. They are also doing a few tastings today with Tournée du Sud wines from Northern Rhone. The first is a 100% Viognier from Côtes du Rhône, and the second is 100% Syrah of Crozes-Hermitage. And then on Friday tasting Orin Swift “Locations” wines: E-3, F-2, and I-1. These are delightful blends from Spain, France, & Italy. David Swift Phinney, the winery’s namesake, founded the winery in 1998. Since, he’s taken the wine market by storm with provocative, eye-catching labels and distinct, full-throttle flavor profiles.
