Hello everyone,

Join us this Friday, February 10th when we welcome Chris from Coattails Winery. The Etzel brothers, sons of Mike Etzel, owner and winemaker at Beaux Freres, have followed in his footsteps making some great wines as well. Chris is pouring their two Oregon Pinot Noirs along with two Cabernets from Napa. This is a unique chance to taste some very limited wines and Renaissance is fortunate to be able to present them to you. Come out and help us support these up and coming young winemakers. The cost of the tasting flight is $10 and we are offering some great discounts on the wines for the evening.

Renaissance continues our highlighting new upcoming winemakers as we welcome another new Oregon winery. Join us Friday, February 17th as Renaissance welcomes Brianne Day of Day Wines to the shop to share her wines. I had a chance to taste a couple of the amazing wines from this new winery last week and am excited to have her present all her wines to us.

We will follow that up with a visit from Karl Dinger, owner and winemaker for Terra Vina Wines on Friday, February 24th. It has been far too long since he has stopped in to share his wines. Make plans to taste some of Karl’s new releases.

Renaissance is excited to once again welcome our friends from Podere Ruggeri Corsini back to the shop on Friday, March 3. It is always a great event and feel fortunate they have chosen us for one of their tasting events. Their small family winery produces some of our favorite wines from Piedmont.

Doug and C&G Wines comes back to the shop on Friday March 10 to show another selection of exceptional whites from Sancere, Rhone, Burgundy, Chablis and a few others. This was quite a successful event last year so I thought it is a great idea to make this another regular tasting to learn about some of the great white wines of France,

Wine is a great part of your Valentines Day celebration. Stop in and we can help you find the perfect wine for your sweetheart.

Thanks as always for your support of both our small local business as well as the small wineries and distributors we choose to support. Share our email and like us on Facebook so we can continue to spread the word about Renaissance.

Enjoy and see you at the shop!
