There are few things in life better than affordable, good wine. Thankfully, Central Bottle in Cambridge understands that.
Central Bottle Wine + Provisions comes to us from the same folks behind The Blue Room and Belly Wine Bar. Central Bottle is an impressive wine and gourmet food store (located dangerously close to Flour), selling items such as craft beer, cheese, Iggy's bread, and olive oil. They even have a chef on-site - her name is Stacey Daley, and she used to be an organic farmer.
So, why am I telling you all of this? Well, Central Bottle has a monthly promotion that I think you will all be interested in. To sum it up: three bottles, $17ish each, one awesome tote bag.
It's called Central Bottle's Miscellany Wine Club, and I got to try out the one month option as part of my partnership with Eventbrite (Central Bottle also has a three-month option). Each month, for $50, Central Bottle chooses three bottles of wine that they think their customers will enjoy. I signed up for May, and received three 2011 Alois Lageder wines that I probably never would have thought to try on my own: a Muller Thurgau, a Chardonnay, and a Lagrein Rosé.
So far, I have only tried the Muller Thurgau, which was incredibly crisp and a little bit dry on the palate (in a good way). Each sip also possessed hints of bright citrus flavors, which I really appreciated on the warmer, muggy days.
I thought the choices Central Bottle made for this month's wine club were ideal for the start of the summer season. I'm excited to break into the next two bottles at cookouts and/or outdoor dinner parties this summer!
