Our special tastings on First Friday will feature...

Carlos Serres Tempranillo 2013 
This wine from Rioja, Spain offers aromas of fresh red and black fruit, liquorice, and vanilla notes; dark fruit in the mouth which is intense and long, but also finishes with fresh acidity.

Olive Oil  
Nunez de Prado Flor de Aceite
This oil is gathered after olives are crushed, but before they are pressed between mats.  Only the oil that flows through with gravity is bottled in its unfiltered form.  It is called Flor de Aceite (flower of the oil) because many of the savory senses of smell and taste are concentrated within.  Its exceptional flavor is marked by hints of green apples, almond and burnt orange with a smooth and peppery finish.

Nunez de Prado

This "little brother" of the Flor de Aceite has tantalizing nuances of green olives, oranges, lemons, grasses, and apples, all accentuated by a heady pepper finish.  Unforgettably flavorful and truly versatile.

Savory Snacks
Fig Almond Cake

This freshly pressed fig cake is handmade in Valencia, Spain.  It is excellent paired with cheese.  Slice it thinly or chunk it and add it to your cheese plate for a wonderful contrast of savory and sweet.  Also perfect for a snack or in salads.
Manchego Cheese
This is a popular sheep's milk cheese from the La Mancha region of Spain.  Aged three months, it has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture, with flavors of hay, grass, and fruit, with sweet, tangy notes.
Dequmana Olive Mix
This elegantly designed line of olives is cured the natural way with water and salt.  The olives are hand harvested and processed in small batches to ensure the highest quality product.  These mixed olives are from the traditional recipe used in Andalucian homes each year at harvest time.  It is a perfect combination of hojiblanca, gordal, cuquillo and arbequina olives with herbs and natural red pepper.
