Thoughtful Gift Giving

Need a little help figuring out what to buy for your favorite wine drinkers?  Stop by and check out the local art on the walls, handmade tree ornaments, wine glasses, crystal decanters, govinos, beautiful wood corkscrews, wine preservation pumps, chocolates and more.  And of course, there is ultimate gift, a wonderful bottle or two or three of their favorite beverage, beautifully presented in our gold gift boxes.

But we are not a grab and go store where hundreds of pre-shrink wrapped gift baskets are lined up filled with processed cheeses that don't need refrigeration and generic bottles of wine all dressed in pre-tied red and green bows.  At Swirl, we're about thoughtful gift giving, nice wine and local products that we ourselves like to eat and drink. So give us just a few minutes of your time, we will help you pick the perfect bottle and wrap it in something unique; we're here to make you look good!

Deal of the Month, 2009 Runquist Paso Robles Syrah

Jeff Runquist selects most of the fruit for his wines from California's Amador County, but he thinks the best Syrah comes from Paso Robles.  So for this bottling he combines fruit from three different growers in Paso, Steve Carter, Dan Westigard and Bob Goodwin. All three vineyards are located in the Estrella River Plain, where the thin soils,warm climate and cool harvest nights help tame this bold grape variety.  The resulting wine has lots of  depth and concentration, with jammy black fruits, mocha and milk chocolate and touch of hickory smoke. Rich and creamy on the palate with well integrated tannins.

Lucky for us the wholesaler was closing out the vintage.  I received 44 bottles on Friday and we are down to 2 cases. Once it's gone, it's gone....Check it out here on the winery's site at $24/bottle.  Swirl price is $17!  No other discounts apply!!

Antonio's Italy 2013, Wine & Culinary Vacation

Antonio’s Italy
July 20 – July 27, 2013 

Join Swirl Wine Bar & Market in July 2013 as Antonio Molesini, Italian Wine Specialist and native of Tuscany, takes us on a very special wine and cultural tour of his homeland. We’ll be living like locals, spending a week in a villa in Cortona and visiting Antonio’s favorite wineries, restaurants, hill towns and wine bars. With its centralized location, Cortona is the perfect base from which to explore both Umbria and Tuscany, allowing easy access to Umbria, Chianti, Florence, Lake Trasimeno and more.

Sorry, this trip is full!
