Hank McCrorie Winemaker Event 9/28/17

WINEMAKER EVENT FEATURING HANK MCCRORIE OF BURLY WINES Join us for a Free Winemaker Event featuring Hank McCrorie of Burly Wines at Taylor’s Wine Shop on September 28th, 6:30-8pm! Come meet Hank McCrorie, (one of our favorite Napa Valley winemakers) and taste his fantastic Burly wines! For those who may not know Hank McCrorie, here is a little bio on the winemaker: After a successful 40-year career in sales, Hank McCrorie (a Charlotte, North Carolina native) and wife Bernice (raised in Sonoma County, California) decided to build a retirement home in Napa Valley. While working in New York City, Hank developed a passion for elegant small production Napa Valley Cabernets, which subsequently created the desire to produce an outstanding wine himself. Shortly following, the opportunity presented itself to lease a vineyard of 9 ½ acres of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Simpkins’ Ranch in the Coombsville AVA. Seizing the moment, Hank and Bernice set upon hand-crafting their signature offering at a small boutique winery where they were introduced to 4th generation winemaker, Massimo Monticelli, and renowned vineyard manager, Michael Wolf, whose collective mastery of the craft helped bring BURLY to life in...
Andi’s Beer Corner – May 30th

Andi’s Beer Corner – May 30th

There’s still a few more days to get 20% off those ciders! The end of the month is just around the corner but we’ll still cool you off with our next craft beer sale! Starting June 1st all craft wheat beers will be an additional 20% off including singles! Wheat beers have maintained their popularity through their versatility and easy drinking characteristics. Although the category of wheat beer is broad, many styles that use more wheat than any other grain share a lot of similarities. Wheat beers are very light and refreshing with a nice smooth and silky mouthfeel that makes them great for warmer months. They have a mild aroma and flavor easily enhanced by spices and fruits to give them interesting complexity and depth without compromising that refreshing and clean nature. The varieties of wheat beers are rooted in German and Belgian styles. A standard Belgian wheat beer will contain orange peel and coriander. Expect a spicy citrusy aroma and flavor. German wheat beers are a little more complex with sour and tart variations. Expect those same refreshing characteristics but aromas can vary between banana and clove to other fruits. Tart flavors result from the addition of lactic acid. This is true for the Gose style. Salt is often added to give a bite and heighten that thirst quenching aspect. There are many styles that fall under the umbrella of wheat beers and we have a fair amount in stock at Taylor’s! A few examples of German style wheat beers currently in stock: Lonerider Brewing, Raleigh NC Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen Available in 6 pack cans $11.99 Destihl...
