2 reds & 2 whites that we’re pouring tonight!

Our weekly Friday night tasting continues tonight with four fun brews & four wines!

We’re tasting across California this week with four delicious wines (pictured above) that will each be poured by Wine Trends’ own Craig Cracchiolo. On the white side we’ve got a crisp Sauvignon Blanc with notes of citrus & peach, alongside a balanced & toasty Chardonnay from Santa Barbara. With the reds we are embracing the coming of Halloween & the return of the hit show American Horror Story, with a ‘cryptic’ red blend & a ‘freakshow’ of a Cabernet, both from Sonoma County.
