Be a Vintage VIP at This Week’s Tasting

Our featured wines will be Painted Pail Red and Painted Pail White, but we’ll also have two NEW wines you can try as a Vintage VIP.

Our last tasting with Pail Shop Vineyards went so well

…we’ve decided to have another!

In addition to the super popular, light-and-sweet Painted Pail Red, we also now carry the Painted Pail White. So light and delicious, it’s practically BEGGING you to sip it on a hammock.

Both the red and white blend will be available for your tasting pleasure this Friday, 6/29/18 from 4pm-7pm. And of course, you’ll receive 10% off your purchase of either of these wines during our tasting event.

We’ll ALSO be raffling off a bottle of the Painted Pail Red Blend. Just put your name and phone number on the back of your proof of purchase (aka receipt) for a chance to win. Free stuff is always good, but GOOD stuff FREE is always GREAT!

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE

During the tasting, we invite you to be a Vintage VIP and get the inside scoop on some new and exciting wines. We’ll have Pail Shop’s “Portrait of a Cooper” and “10,000 Wooden Pails” available to try, and we want to know if *YOU* think we should carry them. Give both a try and cast your vote Friday 6/29/18 from 4pm to 7pm.

Can’t wait to see you there. Cheers!

 

Long Neck Tasting

Free tasting of Long Neck Chardonnay and Long Neck Sauvignon Blanc at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits on Friday 6/22/18 from 4pm-7pm.

It’s white wine season. Know how I know? It’s too hot for me to want to drink red wine.

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing quite like a bold glass of Chianti when you’re sitting under a blanket on a cold and rainy evening. But with the mercury hitting 94 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday, I think it’s officially time to stick my wine glasses in the freezer and call it summer.

In that spirit, we’ll have two nice white wines from Long Neck open for you to try this Friday (June 22nd 2018) from 4pm- 7pm at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits. Long-neck-sauv-blanc-chardFresh, modest, and entirely drinkable, the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are both great accompaniments to a light summer meal.

We’ll have them chilled and waiting for you! And don’t forget that you’ll also receive 10% off your purchase of these wines during our tasting event, too.

P.S. have you followed Tipsy on Instagram yet? Well what are you waiting for?

Hometown Heroes Banner Program

Have you seen these banners around town yet?

hometown-heroes-banner

Man, do they look sharp! Here’s the one closest to our shop.

According to the town’s website, the program highlights local men and women who are serving, or who have served, in our military. The banners will be displayed until later in the fall, when they will be retired and turned over to families and sponsors for safe keeping. Awesome program! Just one of a thousand reasons we love to be a part of the community here in Duanesburg.

Local Spotlight: House of the Chilean Wine

FREE tasting event June 15, 2018 featuring several delicious wines from locally-owned House of the Chilean Wine.

At Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits, we LOVE LOVE LOVE local products. So you might be wondering why we’re highlighting a company with another country (on a different continent even!) right in the name. Well, I’m not one for suspense. It’s because House of the Chilean Wine is a locally-owned importer of fine wines from Chile! HotCW is a nearly-one-woman operation and that one woman KNOWS HER WINE. If you have shopped our store, there’s a good chance you’ve had one of those wines recommended to you (you could call them a house favorite).

So, this week’s tasting (Friday June 15th, 2018) we are going to be featuring several amazing┬áChilean Wines, that will all be 10% off during the tasting, just in time for Father’s Day!!

Don’t worry, if your dad is more of a spirits’ guy, we’ve got him covered too.

And hey, did you know Tipsy (our friendly feline shop-keep) has an Instagram? Check it out for some of her cute antics, and you may even find a sneak peak of next week’s tasting!

Have a great week, everyone! Cheers!

Cutwater Cans- Actually Taste Good

A ready-to-drink cocktail that actually TASTES like a cocktail? Sign me up!

File this one under: Huh.

You can get a pre-mixed drink, in a can, that doesn’t taste like malted metallic garbage. In fact, Cutwater Spirits has come out with a line of ready-to-drink cocktails that are quite delicious.

I’m not sure why no other company has really been able to do this with any amount of success (in the flavor department, in my humble opinion), but perhaps it’s because Cutwater is not only the maker of the base alcohol, but also the mixers. So when you’re drinking a Cutwater Rum and Ginger, you’re drinking Cutwater’s Three Sheets white rum, mixed with their made-in-house ginger beer. Since they craft the cocktail from start to finish, the quality is entirely on them.

My Favorite Cutwater Ready-to-Drink Cocktail

mouth-full-of-christmas
Say “ah.”

is definitely the Gin and Tonic. Which is funny, because I don’t like Gin. In general, I think gin tastes like Christmas in a bad way. Like a mouth full of pine needles. No thanks.

But Cutwater’s pre-mixed Gin and Tonic? DIFFERENT. As their website says, it’s a “modern spin on an old classic.” Cutwater’s Old Grove gin is blended with a made-in-house grapefruit and cucumber tonic water. It’s refreshing, tart, delicious.

Ready to Try?

You’re in luck! We’ll have these bad boys available at Vintage 20 on Friday, June 8th from 4PM-7PM at our weekly tasting! You’ll definitely want to throw a pack of these in your cooler for your next outdoor adventure. Mix and match a 4 pack, or get just one. The price is right on these! Cheers!
