July Calendar

Tastings and Specials for the month of July 2018 at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits.

Here’s what we have in store this month for tastings at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits. Please note that the 27th is my birthday (woot woot), so we’ll be tasting whatever it is I want to drink that day. Right now I’m leaning towards this. YUM!!

The Tasting Bar at Vintage 20!

The Tasting Bar at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits in Duanesburg, NY has a solid selection of spirits that you can try before you buy!

Our friends over at Rehab Crafters made this classy sign for our tasting station. What do you think?!

I, for one, LOVE it. But I also love that I have the sort of job where I can create my own tasting bar!! Life is full of strange and joyful surprises, isn’t it?

So hey, stop by Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits literally any time that we’re open, for a small taste of one or all of the spirits we have on display. Just like Mom used to say, how do you know whether or not you like something unless you try it?

Easily the 2nd or 3rd least appealing food on the planet.

SIDE NOTE: My mom was talking about Brussels Sprouts. Which are gross. I’m talking about whiskey. Which is delicious. So maybe this isn’t such a great comparison…never mind.

Back to what I was saying, I am always a big proponent of “try before you buy.” While we can’t offer you a taste of every item in stock, we do our best to have a decent array of spirits available at the Tasting Bar, as well as at our weekly tasting events. And: OH! Stay tuned for a new addition that will make wine tastings an all-week-long affair!

Cheers to a great week, friends! I’ll be posting our June tasting calendar soon. <<clink>>

 

Pristine Vodka and A.D. Prosecco

Turn your Friday into a FriYAY with Pristine Vodka and Anno Domini Prosecco! A FREE tasting is scheduled for 5/18/18 at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits.

This week we’re turning your Friday into a FriYAY with a FREE wine AND spirit tasting!

Let’s start off with the fabulousness that is Pristine Vodka. If ever you’ve shopped our shop, there’s a good chance you’re familiar with this sleeper Vodka. What I mean by sleeper is it’s been around our area for a while, and has picked up in volume because people have realized it’s just that damn good.

This movie was a sleeper.

If you like top-shelf vodka without paying a top-shelf price, you should definitely try this one!

prisitne-vodka-anno-domini-proseccoAnother great thing about Pristine Vodka, it’s available through a local importer. We LOVE local.

From the same company, we’ll also have Anno Domini Prosecco available to taste. You may have heard me refer to this one as the “ransom note” prosecco, because the label has an unmistakable “leave me one thousand dollars in unmarked bills under the park bench at noon” feel to it. Of course, I love that about this wine, almost as much as I love the taste. I’ve long been a big prosecco fan, and I *think* this one might be my new favorite.

You can try both of these great products for FREE this Friday 5/18/18 from 4pm-7pm at Vintage 20 Wine and Spirits! Hope to see you there! Cheers!

 

Painted Pail Red Blend

Warm weather means chilled, fruity wines on the deck (at least it does in my house), and Pail Shop Vineyards has my new go-to for an inexpensive and fun little wine: Painted Pail Red Blend. With a strong Concord grape base, it’s sweet (and definitely best sipped cold), but blended out so you get less of that “sandwich jelly” flavor. Fruit forward, it drinks like a sangria– and as per their website, is an excellent base for your sangria.

We LOVE supporting small business (and local business!) so we’re happy to add Pail Shop Vineyards to our growing New York section!

We’ll have a bottle of Painted Pail Red open to try this Friday, May 11th 2018 from 4pm-7pm. It’s a steal at $9.99, but we’ll still give you 10% off your purchase of Painted Pail Red during our tasting event. Cheers!
