Choose Between Two Options

Participants explore the aromas and flavors of nine wines. The first set of wines is paired with fruit aromas, the second set with selections from the shop’s artisanal cheeses and chocolates, and the final set with chocolates. Customers also receive 15% off any in-store purchase on the day of the tasting. The Gourmet Grape offers about five tastings a month, so advance reservations are recommended.<p>

The Twisted Vine

Following layoffs from corporate jobs, Jeffrey Durbin and Michael Banko decided to pursue their passion for wine. Drawing on travels to wineries all over the country, they opened The Twisted Vine in 2003. During weekly two-hour tastings, they guide customers on a culinary tour across the globe, with stops including the United States, Chile, and New Zealand. Racks of fine international wines stock the shelves, as well as gourmet olive oils, vinegars, chocolates, tea, glassware, and decorative tableside accents. Like the stork when he’s in a pleasant mood, the duo bundles its wares in gift baskets, which cradle wines, chocolates, candles, and specialty flavored cheeses.
