New  Package, Same  Great Beer
It's August.  Fall is on the horizon.  Kids are heading back to school.  There is no better time to strap on your Gamsbart and head to Cork 'n Cap to get your annual supply of Hofbrau Oktoberfest.   Every year we stock up early on this perennial favorite that disappears from shelves before the holiday season begins.  They've switched to brown bottles from the much maligned green (which should make little difference because we've opened bottles 5 years old that still tasted identical to the current release) and is as good as always.
German Dinner
At Cascades Manor House October 12th
Mark your calendars for this special event that will feature  traditional German cuisine along with a variety of German beer and wine we have selected to go with the menu. Here is an opportunity to discover that there is more to German wine than Riesling.  This special event will take place on Thursday, October 12th at 6:00PM.  Call Cascades Manor House at 517-784-1500 for reservations and for more information.  Seating is limited so make your plans early.  How about a little Bass, Gitarr, and Ziehharmonika to put you in the mood: https://youtu.be/sgUPeTNPrMo
Wine Special Of The Month: Ionos Dry White
Tired of the same old run of the mill white wines and want to venture out of your comfort zone?  Here is a new dry white wine from Greece that we really like.  Ionos is a blend of Roditis and Moschato, two grapes  that give this wine a really interesting citrusy floral fruit note.  This bright crisp white works as an aperitif or lighter fare; salads, shellfish and other seafood. This wine is everyday priced at just $7.99 or even less per bottle when you buy a sixpack case for just $40.75 which works out to just $6.79!
Wine Club Sixpack #72
Is Now Available
Our latest grab-and-go collection of 2 white and 4 red wines are featured in our latest wine club sixpack.   As always, they come in our reusable, partitioned, eco-friendly six bottle bag and contains over $70 worth of wine for a special price of $49.99. When you bring the empty bag back in, you receive a club discount on six bottles or more of any of our regularly priced in-stock wines.  Our sixpack club has no rules and no obligations,  just a good value collection of specially selected wine. Stay tuned to our  Wine Sixpack Club Page for more details on this and our future sixpacks once they are released.
Our Latest $99 Wooden Crate Special
There is no mistaking this for anything else but traditional Bordeaux red.  The French call it "Terroir".  If you were to blend 60% Merlot with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon grown anywhere else on the planet it will not be the same. The moderate temperatures of 2015 gave this wine a nicely balanced structure and relatively low alcohol by today's standards at just 12.5%.   That is what makes Chateau L' Eglise Saget such a value at $9.99 a bottle or $99 for a case of 12 in its very own versatile wooden crate.
