Wine Tasting at Good Tern Natural Foods Co-op – Knox County VillageSoup
The Good Tern Natural Foods Cooperative, at 750 Main Street in Rockland, will host a wine tasting on Friday, August 12, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Cooperative.
Four wines will be honoured. All are blends of two or more varietals, and all are made from organic grapes. Domaine Bousquet Brut is a blend of champagne from Tupungato, province of Mendoza, Argentina. The hillsides facing the Mediterranean Sea in Roussillon, France are the source of Jean-Marc Lafage Côté Est, a blend of Grenache Blanc, Chardonnay and Rolle. Spartico Spanish Red Blend from Spain combines Tempranillo and Cabernet Sauvignon, and Riojana Bonarda Malbec is a bold red from La Rioja, Argentina.
“We chose this selection to highlight wines that are both newer to our inventory and are blends,” Cole said. “These fun blends are also organic and vegan, and each bottle is reasonably priced, under $17!”
The wine tasting will take place at Café de la Bonne Sterne. A small selection of cheeses and crackers will be served. The event is free and open to anyone 21 years of age or older. For more information, contact Deminique Cole at [email protected]
