Halloween’s Almost Here!

Every October, I start craving spicy red wine, comfort food, scary movies, and candy. I believe there should be a month long lead-up to Halloween, our favorite holiday at Astoria Park Wine & Spirits. We started early and broke out the beakers and test tubes for a mad scientist/ mixologist Halloween. We have lots of stuff going on this month so stay tuned.

 

We’ve gotten lots of new wine in this past week. We have two new Aussie wines on the Bang For Your Buck shelf, a Chardonnay and a Shiraz from The Wine Men of Gotham. Educated Guess Napa Cab is now in stock at a great price to fill the hole left by the departure of our Rutherford Ranch Cab. We also got a great new New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from Marisco called The King’s Favour which is amazing. We finally have an Aglianico and we have a new Super Tuscan for only $14 which we love for Fall. Last but not least, we have a French pear cider by Eric Bordelet which I could drink all day. We also now carry Blanton’s Bourbon and bitters from the Bitter Truth.

 

On to events. This Thursday. 10/11 from 6-9 pm, Bulldog Gin will be back to sample their fantastic London Dry Gin. It’s much smoother and less juniper-heavy than some other gins you may have tried. At prior tastings, even those who say they don’t like gin have been converts. It’s absolutely perfect in a gin martini and it works as a mixer too. Gin’s really the original flavored vodka.

 

This Friday, 10/12 from 6-8:30. we’ll have open three fantastic red wines from Spain. All three are under $15 and they’re all perfect for fall food and chilly nights. We’ll also have a new artist in the house, Jake Genen. Come check out his awesome new art which fits the mood for Halloween perfectly.
