We were so thrilled with the response to the Santa Maria La Palma Monica from a few months ago, that we thought we would bring another extraordinary value from the winery to your attention… 2015 Cantina Santa Maria La Palma Aragosta Vermentino di Sardegna!
2014 Tire Bouchon by Domaine D’Ouréa Vin de France
We always harp on about buying the most affordable wines from the best producers. It makes a lot of sense. The grapes often come from the exact same vineyards as the top cuvées, and are farmed, harvested, and vinified using the same methods. Usually, the only differences are in the ages of the vines, the yields, and the aging regime. Granted, these are important contrasts, but there is no question you can get the gist of an estate’s style from the entry level.
This time, we have a bonus. Not only do we have the entry level from a top grower, but we think we are far enough out in front of this one that a year or two from now, this wine will seem like an absolute steal. Continue reading 2014 Tire Bouchon by Domaine D’Ouréa Vin de France
Copos Nature by Cellers Unio: An Organic Red that Puts Shame to Many
It’s no secret that Catalonia has got it going on. A roughly triangular region in Spain’s far north-east corner, Catalonia is separated by the Pyrenean Mountains from southern France, with which it has close historical ties. With a distinct history stretching back to the 11th century, many Catalans think of themselves as a separate nation from the rest of Spain. In fact, the Catalonian language is entrenched in the laws enacted by the local Parliament. Continue reading Copos Nature by Cellers Unio: An Organic Red that Puts Shame to Many

At Colonial Spirits of Acton, we love educating our customers about beer, liquor & wine. Our educational outreach comes in many forms, from the posts on our blog, to our email newsletters, to our printed magazines. But, if pressed to cite our favorite method of educating our customers, the answer is easy: Tastings!
Sure, one can garner a great deal of information about a particular small-batch spirit, a new craft brew, or a classic white wine from reading an expert opinion on a given libation. Reading expert reviews can help to cultivate your palate by giving you new ideas about the cornucopia of taste sensations out there to experience, and help to improve your personal collection by pointing you in the direction of drinks that you are likely to enjoy.
The thing is, no matter how many reviews on a given beverage you may read, there is simply no substitute for sampling it yourself, which is why we hold regular beer, liquor, and wine tastings at our store in Acton, MA every month. So, we’d like to invite you to view our Events Calendar to see all of our scheduled upcoming tastings today, and remind you to check back regularly, as we are adding more events all the time.
At this time, we’d like to draw your attention to two upcoming “grand tastings” in particular… COMING SOON TO COLONIAL SPIRITS OF ACTON: FALL HARVEST GRAND WINE TASTING & BIG RED WINTER GRAND WINE TASTING! Continue reading Two Upcoming Grand Wine Tastings at Colonial Spirits of Acton
