Greetings from the Wine Cellar:

Can you believe we are already mid-way through 2023? It has now been 3-months since taking over the at the Old Town Wine Cellar and I am greatly enjoying this new adventure. Spending time with longtime customers and getting to meet many new customers has been an awesome experience. With our featured wines this week we are going a new adventure and will be visiting several countries to explore some of the wine varietals they bring to us. We start in New Zealand and end in Spain, so buckle up and come take a tour with us to enjoy some of the great wines we have on offer at the coolest place in Downtown Yuma (literally, you might want to bring a sweater with you). Look forward to seeing you all here this week.

This West Coast-Style IPA is a definite winner. Amarillo, cryo Idaho 7, and strata impart bold flavors of stone fruit, berry, and grapefruit hop flavors. This IPA pairs well with Nopales tacos, Tempura veggie roll, Hanging in the garden or by the pool.
