Apologies for the sloppy grammar. #neverendasentencewithapreposition

As much as we love a long, tall pinot grigio on the patio, we thought we’d look into some new sips for summer 2017, and consulted the experts at our client The Cellar at Corkbuzz, which is the wine store & bar next to Corkbuzz on Ashley Park Lane (aka Sharon Square aka the stuff behind Whole Foods SouthPark).

“If watermelon limeade was a wine – ultra refreshing!”

Since both Corkbuzz and The Cellar are concepts created by one of the few female sommelier in the country, Laura Maniec, we knew their list would be unique, intriguing, taste-able and affordable. And we were not disappointed ~ we’ve only tasted one of the 5 on this list, and all are priced under $25.

If you want a broader taste of what Corkbuzz has to offer, don’t miss their upcoming July 19th RAID THE CELLAR WITH LAURA MANIEC event, or have your personalized WINE PROFILE done for $25 at The Cellar at Corkbuzz. 

Or, ICYMI, head to dinner at Corkbuzz any Monday evening, when the restaurant offers Buy One Bottle, Take One Home Free. Yes. Indeed. #alwaysendtheeveningwithafreebottletotakehome.

Salut!
