What's Happening @ Cork 'n Cap


 

 

"Old School" CorkBoard Wine Tasting
September 15th

It has been a while since we have had one of these sit down tastings at Bella Notte Ristorante.  Time to dust off the wine glasses and invite one of our most enjoyable CorkBoard hosts, Mike Francisco of A.H.D. Vintners.  He returns to Jackson with a collection of wines from one of the most acclaimed importers of European wine, Weygandt-Metzler.

This event is scheduled for Monday, September 15th, at 7:30 PM in the Moonlight Room of Bella Notte Ristorante in downtown Jackson. Visit Cork ‘n Cap or call 784-0687 to purchase your tickets for the upcoming event. Admission for this tasting is $20 per person. Seating is limited.

 Dignified Bag In A Box

This dry Cabernet Merlot Blend 3 Liter wooden box is the equivalent of 4 bottles of wine and will keep for weeks after opening (if you can get it to last that long). In stock for $39.99, which if my math is correct works out to $10 per bottle equivalent. Si Bon!


Rabbit Ridge Chardonnay Closeout Special

We regularly stocked Rabbit Ridge at Cork 'n Cap for years until Erich Russel, owner of the winery, decided to stop distributing their wine to concentrate on direct wine club and tasting room sales.  They also raised their prices significantly to fit them into a different price category.  Neither action pleased the Michigan distributor of their wines so they decided to close out all their remaining inventory at a great price that we are able to pass along.  We were able to scoop up the last of their Barrel Cuvee Chardonnay at a great price. The only Chardonnay they currently list on their website, made with some of the same estate grown Paso Robles fruit, is currently being sold for $22 per bottle.  We scoff at that notion and have decided to clearance this wine out for just $7.99 per bottle or by the case for $78, which works out to just $6.50 in the 12 bottle case.

Wine Sixpack #44 is now available

This collection of 1 white, 1 rose' and 4 red comes in its own reusable "earth friendly" wine bag and contains over $70 worth of specially selected wine for just $49.99.  Our sixpack has no rules or obligations, just a great value in wine.  Visit our Wine Sixpack Page for details on this current selection

New $99 Wooden Crate Bordeaux Special

The latest in our series of great value Bordeaux comes from Cotes de Blaye. Consisting of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, this dry red wine is well-balanced and elegant on the palate, with a fruit dimension that shines through with notes of strawberries and cream. The soft and supple tannins make you want to come back for another glass! It's not quite up to the measure of Chateau Margaux, but for the price it has a surprisingly long and satisfying finish.  We are offering this wine for $9.99 per bottle, or discounted to $99 when you purchase the 12 bottle wooden crate case.

New Item For Home Brewers:   All Grain "Brew In A Bag"

Each kit makes 5 gallons of beer (approx. 53-12 oz. glasses)  The BIAB method is easy and ensures the best possibility of success for an extract brewer to brew an all-grain batch. Very little equipment is needed. With a 42 quart or larger pot, a propane burner and a nylon BIAB bag you'll be all-grain brewing in no time!  Homebrewers in urban dwellings will appreciate the small footprint that BIAB requires for an all-grain setup.  With less equipment to setup and cleanup there is more time to enjoy you homebrews.


Now You Can Have Your Own Porta-Party

Ever make a 5 gallon batch of beer and wish you had draught and bottles of your brew?  Want to take your keg on the road but find it way too inconvenient to lug a 5 gallon keg and CO2 tank around that won't fit in a refrigerator?  Now it is easier than ever with these new, high quality Italian made 2.5 gallon "corny" keg. Coupled with the necessary accessories, this whole rig easily fits in a fridge or a cooler and includes the faucet, CO2 keg charger, fittings, and CO2 cartridge for just under $160. Sorry, the beer isn't included..
