Greetings from the Wine Cellar:

Last week featured All-American wines from our Top Rack selections to celebrate July 4^th and it was a resounding success! I want to thank everyone that made it in to sample the great wines we show cased to honor our nations special day.

This week we are revisiting a couple of recently featured wines, that are excellent choices for our warm summer days (and evenings), along with a new arrival and a couple of tried-and-true favorites. I am also very excited to announce a new offering for your snacking pleasure. Beginning this week, we will have Fresh Fruit plates prepared by Simply Boxed. The selection of fruit is scrumptious and plentiful. Quantities are limited so be sure to get one while they last. Hope to see you at the Old Town Wine Cellar this week.

The Quest Cabernet Franc Blend is an exciting and unique wine. This blend displays a beautiful herbaceous nose of anise seed, warm chocolate and fresh mint.
