Triple digits. That is something that doesn’t happen very often around here in terms of temperature, and it looks like we are due for a double dose today and tomorrow. As most of you know, we keep the shop a chilly 63 degrees all year round so when we hit an extremely hot day, it becomes a nice refuge from the heat to just hang out for a while and cool down.
So in the interest of public service, and because our solar panels are already working hard to absorb the sun’s energy and redeliver it inside the shop in the form of chilly air conditioning, we are adding another tasting to this week’s calendar in hopes we’ll become your Alberta Street Cooling Center tonight when your body just can’t take the heat any longer.
Join us to for wine-by-the-glass Tonight or stop in to our regularly scheduled Friday Night Flight tomorrow and take advantage of just how cool it is at cork! Both tastings run from 4pm to 7pm.
See you soon,
Darryl and the cork crew
THURSDAY NIGHT TASTING & COOLING CENTER
Thurs, Aug. 16th . 4pm – 7pm . Wine by the glass or flight
Knowing you will all need something cold and refreshing as the temperatures heat up this afternoon, Hilary has thrown some of our favorite bottles of white into the fridge and we will be pouring them by the glass or in a mini-flight for your sipping pleasure. Come on in, grab a stool and let your body cool down while your palate is perked up from the likes of Oregon Pinot Blanc, Ligurian Pigato and the always hydrating and refreshing Basque Txakoli. Wines available in a flight for $10 or by the glass for $6. Regular discounts apply. Tasting starts at 4pm and goes until 7pm.
In our ongoing effort to spread the love of pink wine, we will be holding our third rosé flight night of the Summer this Friday. On deck are some newer arrivals from Spain, Italy and Oregon that show a wide range of styles, all at great values. As a bonus pour, we’ll be offering one of our special French selections for those who come early. The tasting starts at 4pm and goes until 7pm or the bottles are empty, whichever happens first. But in the interest of keeping you cool, we promise to have something cold to serve you until we close!
*Our main flight on Fridays is free for cork club members (limit 2 flights per week, member must be present to use). Bonus pours extra.
