When is the last time you had a night out? Between school, work and chores, it seems you never have time, right? And the holidays are right around the corner, so things are only going to get busier!
Well, here is an excuse to get out, eat some good food, drink some fabulous wines, and relax. Plus, it’s all for a good cause!
On October 12th, starting at 6:45, Nino’s will host a wine-tasting featuring a hundred wines, beers, chocolates and tasty treats, all in support of the Lions Club of Shelby Township.
You will be able to sample wines from around the world–everything from Prosecco to Chocolate wine, South African Pinotage to Italian Amarone. What better time than now, with gift giving and parties on the horizon? We will have all our experts on hand to answer any questions about the wines while you’re there.
It’s our honor to help a club that helps so many. The Lions Club of Shelby Township has been bettering the community for decades, giving away scholarships and benefiting the underprivileged.
The Cherry Creek Golf Course is one of the most beautiful spaces in which we have ever held an event. From the rolling hills to the picturesque ballroom, you can bet this is going to be a romantic evening.
Simone, our Clinton Township Wine Manager, has picked out some real knockouts, and I have put together a list of wines that are not to be missed. Whether you are looking for low-dollar wines that would work great for a party or a high-ticket gift for your wine snob of a boss, these wines will suit your needs.
Party Pleasers –
Be sure to taste these, keeping in mind that they are fruit forward and meant for a large crowd with many different palates.
Segura Viudas Spanish Cava –
I always have this on hand. Whether we are making Mimosas for Christmas Day brunch or toasting a friend’s new promotion, Segura, with its lively acidity and toasty notes, has never failed to shine.
Callaway Sauvignon Blanc, California –
Crisp and refreshing, this Sauvignon Blanc is citrusy and fruity without being too acidic.
2 Copas Red Blend, Argentina –
Juicy red fruits and soft tannins make this wine a crowd-pleaser.
Mid-Range Must Haves –
These wines have elegance and finesse but won’t break the bank. Perfect for when good friends from out of town stop by unexpectedly.
La Marca Prosecco, Italy –
Light, fresh, and fruity, Prosecco is the perfect drink to hand your guests as they walk in the door. La Marca is just a touch sweet, so it will please all palates!
Angeline Chardonnay, California –
Medium bodied with pear and apple and just a whisper of oak on the finish.
Villa San Juliette Petit Sirah, California –
One of my very favorite Petit Sirahs, the VSJ is bold and structured with blackberry, coffee and chocolate notes.
Great Gifts –
First time going to the future in-laws house for Thanksgiving? Bring one of these special treats! Not only will you impress your future spouse–“I remembered how much Steph liked this at the Nino’s tasting,” but your thoughtfulness will also win over the folks! These should work to impress the boss too!
Mawby Blanc de Blanc, Michigan –
I always like to give sparkling wine as gifts, and why not give something from our home state? I have written before about my adoration for Larry Mawby’s wines and this elegant Blanc de Blanc shows why.
Domanine Daulny Sancere, France –
Light and lovely with concentrated citrus, this is not your ordinary Sauvignon Blanc. This Sancere is crisp but elegant and a perfect pairing with scallops.
Riondo Amarone, Italy –
Rich and raisiny, without being too heavy, this red has guts but in a refined way.
So to sum up: wine, beer, appetizers, chocolates, and music – all for only $39. How could this get any better?
It’s Ninos! Of course it gets better!
We went to the owners and asked if, just this once, we could give a little something back to our loyal customers. So with every purchase of a case of these featured wines (12 bottles), you will receive a 20-percent discount. This in store offer will expire on 10-31-2012 so don’t delay!

See you there!
