5 Local and Regional Wines for the Holidays
by Ty Marshal - Tuesday, December 24th, 2013
Tis' the season for local wine!

We’ve asked local mixologists to provide us with Holiday Cocktail Recipes and we’ve come up with a list of 5 Local and Regional Winter Brews – so we didn’t want to forget the wine drinkers out there (and we know there’s a lot of you!) These selections can also make great gift items or as extra stock for your collection!  As always, please be sure to drink responsibly this holiday season, and don’t drink and drive. Cheers!
