SUNDAY AFTERNOON TASTING AND BOOK SIGNING
Our friend and neighbor Orr Shtuhl will be at Dandy at 3pm tomorrow with his awesome book "An Illustrated Guide to Cocktails". Orr is a wealth of knowledge and his book is informative AND adorable. He’ll be hanging around singing his book (an amazing gift for any boozehound) and chatting about Vermouth and Sherry! Drink a little, learn a little, shop a little, and BE MERRY!
Thursday Night Tasting: Let there be bubbles!
Join us tonight, 6-9 pm, for an incredibly special tasting of Champagne and Sparkling Wine with our friend Ben from Bonhomie. It’s our last tasting of the year and we’re gonna make it count! Please come by and share a bubbly toast with us over cheese from ED and bread from She Wolf.
Moissenet-Bonnard Cremant de Bourgogne
100% Pinot Noir sparkler from one of the most revered villages in Burgundy, this Cremant is perfetly party ready and available in both 750 mL bottles and MAGNUMS if you really want to do it right. Citrus fruit, green almond, firm bubbles and a dry finish- sophisticated and festive! $25
Pierre Brigandat Champagne
Over the past few years this wine has become our “House Champagne”, one we don’t ever want to live without! All Pinot Noir, this Grower Champagne is onsistently delicious with robust fruit and bracing minerality. Brigandat is ready to party alllllllllll season long. $40
Marie-Noelle Ledru Grand Cru Brut
We feel fortunate to be one of the few retailers with access to the incredible Champagnes made by Marie-Noelle in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. As far as we’re concerned, she is one of the best and most conscientious producers around, the “Beyonce of Champagne”, overseeing every single step from viticulture to vinification. Her Grand Cru is elegant inside and out, the perfect balance of bread-y brioche and zesty citrus. Bottoms up, babes! $69
Jean Velut Rose
This bold, organic Rose Champagne packs a punch and definitely leaves an impression from it’s vibrant red hue to it’s lingering finish. 100% Pinot Noir from one of the “lost villages of Champagne” in the Aube region. A Champagne suitable for hearty holiday meals that turn into raucous late night celebrations. Live a little. $55
Dandelion Wine is an official drop-off location again this year, and we did such a good job last year collecting toys, we got an extra big box this time! Help us fill it up with new, unwrapped toys or games for kids 14 years old and under… let’s make a difference this holiday season!!!
BRUNCH WINE. CHEESE WINE. PIE WINE.
David Bautin Methode Dioise Ancestrale Clairette de Die $19
Hailing from France’s Diois appellation (just East of Cotes du Rhone), Clairette de Die is a naturally sparkling white wine that has been produced the same way for about 2,000 years. This unique production method, officially designated the “ancestral Dioise process”, slowly ferments white muscat and white clairette grapes. The result is a naturally sparkling, naturally sweet wine that is a vital part of the Rhone Valley region’s cultural tradition.
Composed entirely of muscat grapes, David Bautin’s Clairette de Die Tradition boasts vibrant aromas of fresh fruit, honeysuckle, and rose. The sweet, fruit-forward palate offers elegant flavors of peach, apricot, and fig that lead to a balanced, delicate finish.
David is the 3rd generation of farmers/wine makers at the foot of the mountains in the Drome. He practices traditional techniques in the vineyards and in the winery. He recommends drinking this wine after dinner with dessert. PIE!? We also think it would be a terrific match for the cheese course, and a killer beverage for brunch. No need to add juice to this sparkler, and at only 8% alcohol, you can drink this with your pancakes and venture out without the post brunch nap.
The Dandy family wishes your family the happiest of holidays! We truly love you and appreciate you making this year our best ever!!!
We are open today until 9PM, closed tomorrow for Christmas, and then business as usual on Wednesday.
Please swing by on New Year’s Eve for hugs and a splash of bubbly! Dandy Loves You. XO
We’re total wrap stars, topping the holiday charts, with our WILD HORSES WRAPPING PAPER! There’s nothing we can’t beautify for ANY person on your list. ONE STOP SHOPPING… who doesn’t like the sound of that?
Christmas Eve is just 12 days away, and if you’re anything like us, you haven’t even begun to shop for all the people on your list or all the parties on your calendar. But don’t freak out! Dandy is here for you, and we’ve got something for every good or bad boy and girl on your list, and every single boozy holiday bash. Stay tuned here for helpful holiday hints with Dandy’s twelve days of Christmas!
We love the idea of replacing the liquor with sparkling wine when it comes time for holiday cocktails. Lower alcohol content and a cheerful bubble keeps the party bright, light, and merry! We came across these suggestions in Whole Living magazine recently, and cannot wait to whip ‘em up! Our Beatrice Prosecco is the perfect pick ($13 for a bottle, $74.10 for 6, and $140.40 a case). CHEERS!
Dandelion Wine is an official drop-off location for this local holiday toy drive.
You can drop off toys here for local kids in need until December 16th!!!
Dandy Loves You XO
