This Saturday 4th of August, a very eclectic wine tasting on schedule!:

- a rustic and terroir style with the Cidre du Pays d'Auge from Pierre Huet
- who's never heard of Bonny Doon, this genial maverick from California? Once again he attacks with a unique product: his Bouteille Call (who else could possibly invent such a name?!): a grape wine + raspberry wine with grape spirits added! Absolutely super!
- and also, after long weeks of absence, we can finally announce the return of the Southern Right Pinotage! We'll discover the new vintage together.
C U Saturday! Cheers!

06/07/2007

This Saturday's tasting: well, we had thought about a couple of seasonal whites, and a couple of lighter reds that can be cooled in the fridge... The types of wines you would normally drink in July. July? Who said it was July anyway?? Anyone for Amarone? I guess we'll check the color of the sky tomorrow and figure out what we'll taste. So join us for a surprise tasting! We might even ask you your opinion before opening any bottles!!
Cheers and see you tomorrow!!

Latest news from the front!:
First of all we'd like to welcome our new recruit: Xavier, apart from his oenology classes and activities as journalist will be helping us at Mig's. Welcome aboard, Xavier, we certainly need your help!
It seems that rosé wine is "the" new most trendy wine to drink, and Mig's has more and more quality rosés to offer.
Apart from the usual suspects, we have a new malbec rosé from Argentina (Learning to Fly), an Australian rosé (the excellent Boomerang Bay) and the super fun Nova "Tickled Pink": a fruity and slighty sparkling rosé, a very "girlie" rosé!
You'll be able to taste them all on Saturday as well as a new cheap and cheerful red from Spain.
And don't forget, Mig's never closes during summer vacation so we'll be happy to welcome you as always.
Have a nice vacation and if you're not leaving, come at Mig's and travel through the wonderful world of wines!

This Saturday's tasting: new wines from Lebanon & Argentina.
Despite the fact that the country is suffering a terrible fate, Lebanon is bringing us more and more quality wines. To be tasted this week-end: 2 delicious wines from Massaya (a white and a red).
From Argentina: a new cabernet sauvignon from Santa Ana. Despite its low price (just over 10.00 €), it's a complex and tasty cab and comes wonderfully packed in smart wooden boxes of 6 bottles. A great gift idea as well as a great wine.

C. U. Sat! Cheers!
