Wines for Ham and Lamb

Today, many of you have the day off. Or at least our children do so by default, many adults are home. So when that time of day inevitably occurs when you just need to get out of the house, stop on by and browse for your Easter selections.

As you enter the wine room there is […]



This Month’s Mission: Try a New Red Blend

At the beginning of January I encouraged all of you to try a new grape varietal in 2016. I was so impressed with everyone's open mindedness that I thought I would try something else this month. So for Lent, give up your ubiquitous, generic California red blend and try a new one.

Presidents Day and Valentine’s Day

I think it's safe to say that this is most everyone's favorite weekend of the year. Especially when the two best holidays fall on back-to-back days of each other!

Men, please remember to grab a bottle of bubbly or Pinot Noir along with some flowers for that special someone. And on Monday, enjoy a pint […]



Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom… we’re still open!

While none of the local teams are in the Big Game, it is still a great excuse to have people over. We are going to change things up a bit on Friday. In lieu of our regular wine offering, Marc will be here to show you how to mix […]



Abramo with new Sicilians and… Football!

Happy Championship Game weekend. I was very happy to see how many of you actually listened to me and came in to try new grape varietals last weekend. Now if only I could do the same with my children and vegetables! This weekend we will feature three new wines from Sicily. And I bet at […]



Jeff’s New Year’s Challenge: Try a new Grape!

Well, if you haven't made one yet, I ask that you try something different. This year, grab a bottle of a grape varietal that you […]



SuperBowl packs on their way

As a New York Jets fan living in New England, I have not had too many fond memories over the first 42 years of my existence. As we all know, the Patriots have won four SuperBowls over the past fifteen years while my Jets seemingly find new ways to lose each week. Pretty much everywhere […]



Rivalry Weekend and Great Wines

This time of year is always a blast. By now we have worked ourselves out of the food coma from Thanksgiving and we have gift giving and family gatherings to look forward to. And then there's the annual battle between Providence College and URI tomorrow night at the Ryan Center.

And for us Jets and […]



Thanksgiving Selections at Wakefield Liquors

Thanksgiving is always one of my favorite times of the year. The family I haven't seen recently, the food that I never cook for myself, and of course, the wine! We have selected a wide variety of wines to pair with your feast. Feel free to ask for help if you would like a specialized



Awesome Pinots and Austrian Winemakers

While it doesn't feel like Fall outside, there are only two weekends after this until Thanksgiving. To kick off the wine-to-pair with turkey season, we begin with a great lineup.

On Friday, the West Burgundy Wine Group will showcase their world-class wines from California and Oregon.

On Saturday Niklas Peltzer from Meinklang and Michael Hoeffken from Hillinger will be […]
