antica-napa-cabDear Enotecans,

We have a special treat for our Free Flight Friday this week.  Come meet Glenn Salva from Antica in Napa Valley, and taste some excellent wine from both the California and the Italian Antinori properties.  Read about these wines below, and come to Enoteca Drinkery & Refuge after 5pm Friday to taste them for free.  While supplies last.

Free, drop-in tasting from 5-7pm.

When you come to taste, Glenn will have a station to pour from, come up to him to talk and get tastes.  If you want to order something, order from the bar tender behind the bar.  Easy peasy.

Reminder: Bale Breaker Pint Night – Thursday 4-7pm – door  prizes and special beer!
