April Fools Wine Tasting @ The Cave on Main St

No joke.  Seasonal wine & beer licenses kick in April 1 (MON).

That means The Cave, at 44 Main Street, can sell wine again and they’re opening up at 4pm (usually closed Mondays) to host a wine tasting from 4-6pm.

They’ll have some new Italian wines at very affordable prices.  Plus they always have cheeses and other goodies to taste with the wines.  (You can taste any cheese before you buy it).  This has become one of our favorite new spots in town.  When I go in, I always let other people go ahead of me — not because I’m polite, but because I want to see what they’re getting — and when they get a taste, I pipe up, “Can I have a taste too?”  I’ve discovered over a dozen new delights this way.

Here’s a video I shot about 3 weeks after The Cave opened last Summer of Vickie tasting some of their wine and cheese.

Since then I’ve learned how to pronounce the name of the wine in the video.  It sounds like “Sarah Harris”.  I still don’t speak Portuguese, but Laura says that’s close enough for her to recognize which wine I’m talking about.

    I thought I was the only one that did that. Mulling about a bit one can also graze on the free samples more. And for any store thinking of putting out free samples, they work if they are tasty. I always walk out of The Cave with a half pound of two or three free samples as well as the cheese the person in front of me ordered.

    Chevre, the one french word I have nailed. It is the one cheese that I can’t get along with. Too goaty. I eat anything and everything … except goat.

    • Do you eat duck? Ever go to the butcher shops in the North End and see the goat heads for sale? I’ve never seen anybody buy one and I’d love to know how they’re prepared.
