Enoteca – Fine Wine & Beer

Connecting Post Falls, Coeur d' Alene, Spokane and surrounding towns with high quality beverages. Wine and Beer of the Month Clubs, wine & beer tasting events, and huge selection

Dear Enotecans,

Have we got a treat for you!  The first week of 2012 we have not one but TWO excellent opportunities to meet the humble wine maker from the esteemed winery of Walla Walla Vintners.  Gordy Venneri is spending a little time with us and we have him coming to pour wine on Wednesday, January 4th at Enoteca starting at 7pm, and pouring wine that is paired with an incredible gourmet menu on Thursday, January 5th at Ts’Elusm Steakhouse starting at 6pm.

Friday and Saturday of this week will be our Wine of the Month Club tasting days, and I’ll bet there’s going to be some surprise Walla Walla Vintners bottle in one of the Club spots that we’ll be pouring.  Oh gee, what will it be?

You must get tickets / make reservations to attend either one of these events.

Reservations for the Wednesday Wine Tasting are $10 per person, and you can place your RSVP online here.  Reservations can be made Online only, as this system will ensure that we do not overbook our seating capacity.  Please be courteous to cancel an RSVP if you find that you cannot make it so someone else can use the space.

Reservations for the Thursday Wine Maker Dinner are $65 per person, and includes a 9 course meal paired with Gordy’s wines, tax, tip, and valet.  You can read more about it here, and let us know you want tickets.

Transportation Information:  We’ve spoken to a number of people who have expressed interest in the Wine Maker Dinner series but have hesitated due to the drive.  We’re polling for people who want to come but need to have a bus or shuttle service from Enoteca to the Ts’Elusm Steakhouse to make the commitment.  If that’s you, please contact us to get on the “bus list” – if enough people sign up we’ll be able to make this happen.  We’d probably be leaving the Enoteca parking lot around 5:30 and returning around 9:30.  If we get more information we’ll post it!
