This is THE week for sparkling-wine tastings — and sales! FILE

This is THE week for sparkling-wine tastings — and sales! But a wine geek cannot live on Champagne and other sparklers alone, so you’ll still find some still wines for sampling. Looks like the New Year’s holiday is wreaking similar havoc on scheduled tastings as Christmas did, though maybe not quite as catastrophic.

Remember, this wine list comes to us via the indefatigable efforts of a local wine enthusiast who brought back these tastings after an absence of several months, and THAT will make 2018 a happy new year!
