Wine is Fine AnytimeSitting outside, enjoying the beautiful Colorado summer weather, sipping on a glass of your favorite vino...
does it get much better than that? We sure don't think so! When Nick and I opened Pinot's Palette, one of our favorite parts of the job quickly became sampling and selecting wines (and beers) for our menu.
My favorite part about sampling a variety is really learning what I like and what I don't. I love learning about different wine regions and varietals and every time I try something new, I learn more and more!
I remember a wine rep showed up in the middle of the day on a Wednesday after we'd first opened wanting me to sample something for the menu. I obliged (who wouldn't?) and after, I talked to Nick about how strange it felt to be sampling wine in the middle of my work day. He laughed, and told me it's part of the job! Not a bad gig, eh?
Even if this doesn't fit into your job description, there are a number of ways you can enjoy this as well. Have you met our awesome neighbors over at Mondo Vino? It is a wonderfully quaint, and incredibly well stocked liquor store on our street. They offer wine tastings regularly and their knowledgable staff is always willing to help you find something unique that you'll love!
They offer tastings every Friday from 4-7pm and Saturday from 2-7pm where you'll get to sample wines from around the globe and learn a bit in the process. Go check them out before joining us to paint. Grab some delicious cheese and crackers from St. Killian's and make your way to our patio to nosh and drink before a night of painting!
Unfortunately, you can't bring their wines to our studio (we are NOT a BYOB), but if you try something you love let us know & we'll see about getting it on the menu here! If you try something at Pinot's that you love, there's a good chance that Mondo Vino also carries it and you can grab a bottle after class to take home & enjoy!
Looking forward to painting, drinking, and having fun with you soon!
