Have you been waiting for a great Saturday to take a trip to the Wine Library? If so, mark November 2nd on your calendar!
From 12-2 on November 2nd, 2013, we are thrilled to welcome a very special guest...
Antonio Galloni, one of the leading wine critics in the world
, will be here at Wine Library for a special showing of his new website, Vinous
, along with a sampling of 4 outstanding wines that Galloni has scored 90+ points!
As far as wine critics go, Galloni needs little introduction.
Formerly at Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Galloni was the lead critic and covered Italy, California, Burgundy and Champagne. Vinous
is Antonio Galloni's new venture, aimed to embody the needs of a modern wine consumer. Let’s hear it from the man himself:
“Vinous represents a different approach to exploring wine. Today’s consumers are interested in far more than facts and figures, they’re looking for context, stories and in-depth commentary, all in real-time.”
Regular features on Vinous include comprehensive reviews of new releases from Italy, California, Champagne and Burgundy, vertical tastings and retrospectives, in-depth videos shot on location, Vinous Favorites - top picks under $25 - and Vinous Table, profiles of top eating and drinking destinations.
Starting at 12 Noon, Wine Library will give you an opportunity to explore Vinous and its 30,000+ reviews, hundreds of articles and videos, along with personal tours of the site so you can discover everything it has to offer!
Those of you who stop by will be able to save even more with a special subscription discount to Vinous! All new members that sign up, will save an additional 20% off a one year subscription!
In addition to the special discount on Vinous, we're going to open 4 very special wines hand selected by Galloni and the Wine Library team.
Stop by and sample:
2011 - Tyler Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard
(92 AG - $49.97)
