The vegetable specials for October 5th-11th

Well, guess what. This week we want to start out telling you about the great line of new wines we've started carrying at the Vegetable Bar.

With the help of Dos Amigos Sommelier Services we are now proud to be carrying 8 wonderful Portuguese wines. Most of these wines are made from grapes found exclusively in Portugal and have only become available for export in the last few years.

So you've probably never tasted anything like these wines. They will surprise even the biggest wine connoisseur in your group.

And of course, all of these wines will pair perfectly with something from our food specials this week. 

You can also come in this Saturday, October 8th, from 12:30-6:30 for a special wine tasting event at the Vegetable Bar. We will also have 3 Spanish wines to taste that day.
