A few groovy wine deals for you. First, have you noticed the fantastic list of sparkling wine at ~1760~? Well, you may want to pay closer attention, especially on Mondays, which are Grower Champagne Mondays, which means you get 20 percent off all bottles of grower Champagne. It’s time to party with Gaston (Chiquet)! Pop!

And just in time for Hump Day: over at ~BLUEPRINT TAP ROOM~, you can enjoy a glass of rosé all day for only $5 (normally $9). They’re pouring the 2012 Ampelos rosé of syrah from Santa Ynez. Because we can drink rosé all winter long in California.

If you’re in the 510 this coming Thursday February 20th (or maybe you’ll want to head over after reading this): ~ORDINAIRE WINE SHOP~ is hosting a big Central Coast wine tasting for only $20. Think Roark Wine Company, Sandhi, and more, plus some vittles from Chris Kronner will also be available (he has been popping up there on Thursdays and Fridays). 5:30pm-8pm. 3354 Grand Ave. at Elwood, Oakland, 510-629-3844.
