For the whiskey. we’ll be welcoming Gold Medal spirits award-winning 40-creek-barrel selectFORTY CREEK DISTILLERY out of Canada. Try out both of these fine whiskeys —

And for the wines, our wonderful rep from A. Bommarito will be bringing —
Monte%20AnticoMonte Antico: A Tuscan classic! Medium to full-bodied palate where ripe red fruit, goût de terroir, subtle notes of vanilla and violets harmonize and linger, interlacing with the soft tannins and silky texture. Firm backbone, perfect integration of acidity and fruit. 
 A To Z Rose: fresh and compelling, finishing lively and long with lingering flavors of strawberries and cherries.
Toad Hollow Chardonnay:  100% unoaked Chardonnay that’s clean and crisp with tropical fruit and citrus flavors. Slow malolactic fermentation with time on the lees help to create a full, rich mouth-feel that perfectly balances the bright acids.
Niel Santofimia: This Spanish wine is sappy and smooth on the palate, offering sweet boysenberry and blueberry flavors and a hint of black pepper. A spicy quality builds on the plush, sweet, slightly warm finish. 85% Garnacha Tintorera, 15% Merlot.
Lagaria Pinot Grigio: Light tones of peach and citrus segue to good freshness and a thin, crisp mouth-feel.
