This Week's Magic Monday Deal

We LOVE our Portuguese wines at Pour Richard's. It works like this: pick any type of quality Portuguese producer. Open the bottle, taste it, and guess at the cost. Nope. It's probably about a third of that. And that's BEFORE we start working on discounts!

So while we think the Mundus is awesome at $12, $8 is...what? Just plain crazy! This was easily the fave 'porch wine' of last spring and summer, so we're pretty excited to have it back in stock.

This is EXACTLY what you want to drink as the snow starts to melt and spring finally arrives: a light, floral, delicately fruity white wine bursting with honeysuckle and tropical fruit and complimented by zesty acidity and the faintest hint of a bubble. And at 9.5% ABV, you can have a couple glasses without keeling over.

This is the opposite of a big, serious wine. Instead, it's sprightly, lithe, insanely cheap, and downright delicious. Stock up. Running out is not an option.

Online special available for pickup in-store after noon today. Special available until Sunday, March 25, or until we run out of wine. To purchase, just click on the Specials tab, above.

Notes From All Over

Little Things
A Small Fiction

A Small Fiction, a flash fiction site authored by James Miller, has become one of my favorite indulgences. I brew a cup of good coffee and delve into the site, where humor, logic, mysticism, and more are doled out in 140 character bursts. Yes, the same number of characters and spaces as a Twitter post, but otherwise entirely different: Miller aims to tell a small but complete story in each.

Old Friends

Enough, already with the snow. It's like a poorly behaved guest who arrives far later than expected, causes disruption and general mayhem, and then hangs around preventing you from going to bed. Do I sound bitter? Let me explain...

Storm #1 directly conflicted with the New York Tre Bicchieri tasting. Fans of Pour Richard's know we aren't big on critics and scores, but Tre Bicch is different; out of the many many thousands of wines released in Italy each year, a few hundred win this award. These wines are worth your time, even in a 'Bomb Cyclone' snowstorm.

The Artistry of It
Mark White, Mark Poniatowski, Kenny Hadley

If you'd like to add more creativity, insight, satisfaction, and happiness to your life, try this: add a little artistry to the mix. Engaging with art and artists teaches us that we are not alone; contemplating a painting, experiencing music, or enjoying wonderful food and beverages reminds us that art is about expressing ideas and sharing them with others.
