The winos at CAV are whipping up something new and fun. This from CAV:

What is CAVateria? Glad you asked. Starting this month we are going to open our doors on the last Saturday of the month (each month) for afternoon wine tasting and retail purchases of wine and some of our house-made gourmet food products. We’ll also have blind tastings from 2pm–3pm that will be open to all adventurous palates. This is a great way to shed preconceptions and expand your wine horizons. A region or winery will be featured every month and to kick things off we’re going to spotlight one of Tuscany’s most revered producers, and one of my personal favorites, the wines from Fattoria di Felsina. There will be a few others wines available for tasting and purchase as well. For more information please email info [at] cavwinebar [dot] com or call.

The inaugural CAVateria retail experience will include:

Brown bag blind tasting led by Busch from 1-2 p.m. ($7/person)

A tasting of wines from Fattoria Felsina, one of Busch’s favorite Tuscan producers ($30/tasting of all six wines)
Chardonnay, Isistri, 2004 ($25 retail)
Chianti Classico Riserva, 1995 ($46 retail)
Chianti Classico Cru Rancia, 2001 ($40 retail)
Chianti Classico Cru Rancia, 1995 ($57 retail)
Maestro Rare Cabernet Sauvignon, 1996 ($60 retail)
Fontalloro, 1994 ($60 retail)

Wine-friendly snacks from Chef Christine Mullen for sampling and retail.

In coming months, CAVateria’s tastings will feature unique wine regions, and an expanded selection of house-made to-go items from Chef Mullen. All of the featured wines, as well as the restaurant’s regular wine list, will be available for retail sale. Customers will receive a 10% discount on the featured wines at CAVateria.
