Pre-Thanksgiving Wine Expo & Catering Tasting

Thanksgiving Staunton

Right now it might seem like Thanksgiving is a long way off. But there’s nothing worse than having to run around at the last minute to coordinate your meal and drinks.

So I’m going to make it easier for you by hosting our annual  Pre-Thanksgiving Wine Expo & Catering Tasting!

This Saturday, November 7th 2015, from 3-5:30 pm, we’ll be open early at AVA for one of the best holiday deals you’ll find anywhere. For only $10 per person you’ll get tastings from any (or all) of the following wines — wines that pair perfectly with traditional Thanksgiving dishes:

Additionally, we’ll have light hors d’oeuvres that are samplings of the Thanksgiving side dishes we sell as part of our catering operations. Taste any or all of them for free on Saturday with your Wine Expo, and then place orders if you like, to be picked up the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day.

The thoughtful gourmet

A festive mood and informative guidance will set the scene on Saturday. Our aim is to help you thoughtfully consider which wine(s) you’d like best for your family’s holiday feast. I’ll have a wine representative on hand for one set of tastings, and I’ll be there for the other. You can try every wine or one wine — whatever is your fancy. And we can make food pairing suggestions for each if you’d like.

All the bottle prices listed on the menu are discounted 50% from the normal bottle price, and we’ll offer even more generous discounts on case prices.

This is one event that you won’t want to miss. Think of it as slowly and thoughtfully preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday while tasting, sampling, and considering how best to prepare your table!

And if you’re instead going to be a guest at a Thanksgiving meal, this will offer the perfect insight to bring along a great bottle of wine and/or a side contribution that you didn’t have to cook yourself!

I hope to see you there!
