E & R Wine Shop
Today from 1:30-3:30 w/ special guest,
free free free free! Even if you have never met a Sherry you like, we’d advise you NOT TO MISS this incredible tasting opportunity!
Bodegas Tradición is making some of the finest Sherries in Spain and they have the highest standards for their wines, only bottling the really old (most are 30+ years old) and finest barrels. The production is minuscule at about 1,000 cases per year of hand- bottled, labeled and numbered treasures.
Until now, these special wines have not been available in Oregon. On Saturday we enthusiastically welcome Lorenzo Gacía-Iglesias from Bodegas Tradición. He will be pouring five exquisite gems for all those who show up…. FREE of charge! It is indeed a RARE treat to have access to these wines, let alone taste them for free! We personally visited the Bodega in Spain last June and, knowing what we now know, will not miss a single opportunity to taste/drink these wines. Do join us…
Amontillado VORS $95
Oloroso VORS $95
Palo Cortado VORS $115
PX VOS $110
Saturday, March 1 from 1:30 to 3:30

Great Wine Buys
Syncline Wine Cellars’ Poppie Mantone joins us to pour Rhone-inspired reds and sparkling from the Gorge.
2-5 pm, free.
“…both alike in dignity, in fair Verona, where we lay our scene…”
(Never thought the first two lines from Romeo and Juliet would apply to a wine tasting, but there you go, we did it.)
This weekend, Lilac will feature two wines from the lovely rolling vineyards of Verona: Soave and Bardolino. The white is from the eastern hills and the red from the west next to Lake Garda. The wines are blissfully entwined in their gentle appeal, and the only tragic element is if we sell out before you get a chance to try them!
Open Saturday and Sunday, Noon to 7pm. As always, tastes are free, or stay and have a glass if you can recite the rest of Shakespeare’s prologue….
Liner & Elsen
Tutti Italia: Tenuta le Velette Orvieto, Falchini Vernaccia Ab Vinea Doni, San Felice Chianti Classico, Palamá Negroamaro Arcangelo, Barbi Streppaticcio Umbria, and Vignalta Venda Rosso.
