Halloween Wine Tasting

Come Join @[950338041745867:274:Key City Wine Shop] for a fun Halloween Wine Tasting this Saturday! They will be offering samples of the @[219481511423526:274:Brushy Mountain Winery] Booger Swamp and Bugaboo Creek in celebration of the Halloween Weekend! Booger Swamp was featured on the Jay Leno Show on Oct. 28, 2007 and in the Travel section of the Washington Post on February 8, 2009. This is a white blend of Niagara and Pinot Gris. It is named after the local area with a rich Civil War history. This refreshing “social sipper” is brimming with floral aromas and tropical fruit notes including mango, peach, apricot and honey. Booger Swamp has a touch of sweetness on the finish and it’s highlighted with candied orange flavors. Next the Wine Shop will be offering a sample of Bugaboo Creek was one of three Brushy Mountain wines chosen by an all-star panel of 36 women judges for their “2008 Wines Women Love Shopping List!” from 1600 international wines entered in the NWWC Competition. Skillful blending and French oak aging of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon completes this Bordeaux style signature red blend. Medium-bodied, with juicy red fruit flavors, enjoy with steaks, roasts, and aged Gouda or medium-sharp Cheddar. We look forward to having you join us!
