Annual Big Red Tasting Part I

December 1, 2012 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

At Colonial Spirits of Acton we host three seasonal “Grand” tastings each year, but of these three the Big Red tasting is the highlight. The Big Red tasting is the highlight because it showcases our best wine offerings along with familiar favorites and “far out” wines, and consequently has gotten so big we have had to split it up into two parts, holding it on consecutive weekends. This year the Big Red tasting will take place on Saturday, December 1st and Saturday, December 8th from 2-5pm on both days. There will be at least 50 bottles of wine available to taste each weekend along with finger foods, and great company. The wines present at each tasting can be mixed together to receive our 25% discount on just 12 bottles, unless they are already on sale. So mark your calenders, call your friends and join us for an event you are sure not to forget!
