Happy Thursday peeps it’s almost the weekend!! On Tuesday January 20th we will be hosting a north county, “anywhere north of Cuesta grade”, release party for Scar Of The Sea. Who is this Scar Of The Sea? well let me drop some knowledge on ya if you please.

She will write up a description on the wines, recommend pairings, and information on the region. It’s like a mini 15c university class that you can enjoy at home. You can choose between a red and a white or 2 red or 2 white wines. Once you are a part of the 15c wine club, you will receive a reward card that earns you 10% back on all your wine purchases.
