It’s that time of the year on Main Street! The time when the crew from FranksWine joins the Caffe Gelato staff for our most popular wine tasting of the year… WINTER! It must be all those Spicy Zinfandels, Opaque Syrahs, Napa Valley Cabernets, Rustic Rhones, Italian Amarone and other BIG REDS! We’ll of course have a handful of whites, but it’s red that takes center stage here… and we do it all for the good folks at the American Lung Association:-) We’ll have a silent auction set up with some cool large format bottles of wine and other oenophile goodies to benefit ALA!
