gossip, I mean, "News" from Main St. Grapevine, TX. It may be about upcoming releases, or latest events around town, opening of BYOB outlets, or a new wine that just surprised the heck of us!

Laurie Claudon Visits DFW|
We had a
great evening with Laurie when she came to DFW from deep in the hear of
Napa and the Clark-Claudon winery. Famous for their delicious, full
bodied, dark fruited Cabernet Sauvignon's we had the opportunity to
taste both the 2004 & 2005 Estate wines along with a stunning Sauvignon
Limited production from the 75 + acres of hillside vineyards on the
side of the base of Howell mountain, less than 400 cases were produced.
Not inexpensive, but a cabernet that is worthy of a special occasion
dinner or a gift to a friend who thinks they really like Cab! Very
| ||Fun Wine Gifts & Games|
Being that its the
always the season for hanging out and playing games, we thought you may enjoy some
house warming parties for your friends. We have Board games, Accessories & the newest hit item FUSEBOX - A blenders kit of 1/2 bottles of varietals. Stop
in the store and let me show you some ideas!
|The Grab Bag Bin!|
Okay, its been up for a month and our guests are having lots of
fun with it! Here's the deal we saw this great promotion when we
visted Robert Sinskey's tasting room in Napa. A Bin full of
wines in brown bags that are sold for $20 sight unseen. An
opportunity to try a wine that you may, or may not, choose but
at a better price and a little excitement besides!
A couple of things we want you to remember:-
* We want you to come back and buy
again, so we are not going to take advantage of you!
* No Wine in the bag was offered for
less than $20 before being added to the bag bin
* We taste EVERY wine that we bring
into the store, and of the 50-90 wines per week we selected ess than 10 to add to
our shelves. We do not stock anything that we are not excited
Finally, if you want to know examples of wines that guests
have found so far, check with Cilla or Holly, of course, past
results are not indicative of current or future selections or
the bag you select!

Cellar Selection List Updated
Check out our list of highly rated, small supply wines that
we keep in the cellar just inside the doors at Off The Vine! Not
every wine is sent for ratings from Wine Spectator or Robert
Parker, but they have all been critically acclaimed and would be
an asset in any wine lover's cellar.
The 2005 Winter Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of a
cellar selection wine, less than 500 cases were produced in this
their second vintage. Both the 2004 and 2005 vintages received
95+ ratings from Robert Parker. Many of the online sources are
sold out and the only availability left is in auctions or
