The Winehound’s Economic Drink-ulus Package

Bob Wesley’s Wine Shop on Chapala Street Offers Low Price Tasting on January 28

Most studies show that when the economy slows, drinking picks up. Of course the drinks people pick up usually can’t be the same - a frugality does set in. That doesn’t mean you have to resort to cheap wines with rhyming nicknames, though.

Bob Wesley and the gang from the Winehound are offering a great deal, a discounted tasting of bargain import wines this Wednesday, January 28, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History’s Fleischmann Auditorium. For just $15 per person - down from the occasional tasting series’ usual $25 entrance fee - you will get to taste at least a dozen wines (the line-up is still being chosen), including under $20 favorites like Bodegas Borsao 2007 Garnacha Tres Picos. What’s more, there are appetizers, too, deliciously served up from Metropulos.

These Winehound tastings are a fun way to learn more and have a great start to an evening. You do need to book in advance, so call the store at (805) 845-5247 and make your reservation.


Winehound Wine Tasting, Wednesday, January 28, 5:30 - 7:30 p.m., S.B. Museum of Natural History, 2559 Puesta del Sol, reservation required: (805) 845-5247
