This is Yet Another Wine Tasting at Colonial Spirits That you Won’t Want to Miss!

Premium European Wines Inc is a locally based wine distributor that started right here in Acton, MA.  They’ll be here to show you their amazing portfolio on Friday, March 16th from 4-7 p.m!  They represent a collection of small wineries (from Europe in case that wasn’t obvious yet!).  All of these wineries share the same philosophy as the distributor-charitable giving back to the community and wines that tell a story.  These are not “brands” so much as they are wines that the winemakers are incredibly proud to make and serve.

50th Anniversary Grand Tasting at Quail Ridge

50th Anniversary Grand Tasting

50th Anniversary Grand Tasting. 50 Years, The Golden Anniversary. 50 Years of ‘Thank Yous’ in one great event.

That’s right, we have been in business for 50 years and we are still going strong. From our first location to 69 Great Rd, aka the Clock building, to our current location, one thing has remained the same, our service. We take pride in the services we offer and the gusto we do it with. We enjoy what we do, especially when we can share it with others. Thank you, all. Without past employees and customers, and current employees and customers we wouldn’t have made it this far.

The 50th Anniversary Grand Tasting is a way to appreciate all the years we have under our belt.

In a year of changes, we thought it would be nice to coordinate a tasting that took place at a venue that offered more room. Past Grand Tastings occurred over two consecutive Saturdays due to space. The lack of space pushed us to look elsewhere, and so we did. Proximity to the store was a large priority, as were scenery and accommodations. Quail Ridge has it all. From the space to accommodate 13+ tables to the lush green grass growing on the 1st fairway, Quail Ridge is the perfect spot. So we booked the venue, set the date, and we are now counting down the days to our 50th Anniversary Grand Tasting.

What does this mean for you? A bigger and better representation of what we enjoy doing.

Wine is all about enjoyment, and presenting great wines is what we enjoy doing. From classic regions like Piedmont to modern regions like Umpqua Valley in Oregon, a Grand Wine Tasting should have it all. More importantly, it should have the best. These are the reasons for going to Quail Ridge and for having a tasting unlike any before. 50 years is a long time to be in business, so what better way to celebrate than with a wine tasting with over 100 bottles of wine.

More importantly, we will have it all.

Sparkling, red, white, rosé, port wines, and more. There will be something for everyone. In addition, we will have plenty of finger food, water, and the opportunity to save on your purchase. This will be the event of the season, and we couldn’t have picked a better venue for it.

Put it on your calendar now because you won’t want to miss this tasting.

Premium European Wines Wine Tasting

Premium European Wines

This is as fresh as they come – for distributors, I mean. Premium European Wines is a small operation based out of our hometown, Acton, MA. Paul and Oxana are the husband and wife team that founded the business, represent the wines, deliver and promote the wines. When it comes to boutique, family oriented, environmentally conscious wineries look no further. With only a handful of brands in their portfolio, you can say that they are starting small. Regardless of their size, these wines are just as serious, if not more than the rest. With fewer hands to feed – Prem Euro Wines is the importer and distributor – and no marketing to pay for, these wines offer up an exceptional value but are still well-made. We will be stocking these wines for the foreseeable future so might as well get not only acquainted with them but also the people behind them. See you all here.

Carpe Vinum!
