Daily Free Tastings

    • March means welcome to spring and warmer temps!  Time to put down those full bodied reds  and grab some thirst quenchers..
    • While your first thoughts may lead toward white or rose, think again! There is a whole easy drinking category of reds called Vin de Soif or more simply. Glou Glou (French for glue glug). And that is what these wines are perfect for – glugging!
    • The French may have started the movement, but glou glou wines can be a wide variety of chilled red wines that are light in body, food-friendly, and easy to drink with plenty of different dishes on your table (pizza, barbecue, and seafood). To get a little more technical, glou glou wines usually are high in aromatics and acidity, but low in tannins (the stuff that makes your moth dry out) that make them so much fun and easy to drink. This is mostly because glou glou wines come from grapes that are thinner skinned such as Gamay, Carignan, Zinfandel, Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, and Valpolicella.
    • PRO TIP! To best enjoy glou glou wInes, we recommend serving them chilled  (42°F), (If you’re in a hurry, let it sit 20 minutes in the freezer, and then glou glou! ) They also lend themselves to drinking out of bistro glasses, though we always prefer our Zaltos. 😋
