Holiday wining and dining
WineNot presents biggest in-store tasting of the year

12/14/17

 WineNot Boutique’s first Holiday Grand Wine Tasting, which will feature more than 15 of some of the most hard-to-find high-quality wines in the world, is happening on Saturday, Dec. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m. According to WineNot Boutique owner Svetlana Yanushkevich, it’s the largest in-store tasting of the year, with several other wineries joining in to pour some of the drinks, and other limited special products available as well.

“We’re trying to put people in the holiday mood,” Yanushkevich said. “In the summertime, they are drinking cold beer or lemonade, but this is the time of year when more people are looking to buy special bottles of wine for people that they love. … As it gets colder, wine becomes one of the more popular things people like to share with their friends.”
Wines that will be available at the tasting come from far and wide, according to Yanushkevich.
“Some of these wines had only a limited supply that came to the United States,” she said. “We work hard to find unique wines to share.”
Among them will be the Miss Molly Sparkling Shiraz from Mollydooker Wines in southern Australia, which has flavors of cherry and raspberry followed by smooth hints of mocha and spice. A 325th-anniversary-edition port from Taylor, Fladgate & Yeatman in Portugal — made with a blend of dried fruits and red plums — will also be available.
Others are a sauvignon blanc from Hillersden Estate in New Zealand, which has aromas of lemon zest and bell peppers, and the Albatreti Brunello di Montalcino from Tuscany, Italy, an astringent wine with dried black cherry, hazelnut, anise and vanilla.
Some wines that purveyors will pour also come from the United States, and will be on sale during the tasting only, according to Yanushkevich, like the cabernet sauvignon from Spring Mountain Vineyard in St. Helena, Calif.
“That wine is usually an $80 bottle, plus shipping cost,” she said, “but it will be only $43.99 at the tasting.”
Besides the wines, there will also be samples of other items available to taste alongside them, made locally and internationally as well, like the Wood Stove Mulling Syrup made in New Hampshire, according to Yanushkevich.
“It’s locally made by Wood Stove Mulled Wine,” she said. “The owner of the company will be giving out samples at the tasting. … They put small amounts of syrup with cranberries, orange peels, cloves and other spices in the wine and heat it up. It’s a very popular product to just enjoy by the fireplace in the winter season.”
Food samplings will also include organic Mexican-style dark chocolate from Taza Chocolate in Somerville, Mass., BellaVitano cheese from Wisconsin and aged balsamic vinegars from Acetaia Cavedoni in Italy.
