* Tasting notes by Greg of Capital Wine
Capital Wine hosts a free wine-tasting every Friday evening from 6 to 8:45 pm, featuring several wines chosen by our own staff. We offer these wines on sale for 16% off — the same discount as if you were buying a case. And they stay on sale for two weeks after the tasting. Which means that on any given day, half a dozen wines are on sale.
