New Wine Wednesday!
Pisoni Family "Lucy" Rose of Pinot Noir, 2012, Santa Lucia Highlands
Lucy Rose was born in 2003 when winemaker Jeff Pisoni made only two barrels. Shortly after, the Pisonis decided they should make more and donate a percentage of the sales to the fight against breast cancer. The association of pink Rose wine with the pink ribbon representing breast-cancer awareness seemed like a perfect match. This particular vintage is both zesty and ripe, balances with solid acidity. Wonderful floral strawberry aromas, crisp raspberry, peach and spice notes.

Great Article about Swirl
Livermore's Top-Rated Wine and Tapas Bar.
Swirl is a local "Wine Lounge" with a focus on pouring outstanding wines paired with tantalizing small plates (tapas). The vision of Swirl is to provide you with an authentic Livermore Wine Country experience. The owner, Rocco Maitino, hails from two other popular local restaurants (Trio at Stony Ridge and Casa Madrid). Now with his new solo venture, Swirl on the Square, the vision is to pull from some of the favorite menu selections found at the previous locations and showcase them, along with all new creations, at this new and unique dining location.
"My goal is to provide our customers with a place to gather for an enjoyable experience bringing together great food, wonderful conversation and skillfully crafted local wines all in a remarkably historic space that exudes the charm of downtown Livermore!"
