This Weekend at Grand Cata
El Verano Rosado: Three Rosé Styles, All Perfect for SummerA hot, sunny long weekend -- this is the perfect time to open that bottle of rosé you've been dreaming about. You will enjoy it, we are sure, but do you know how it was made or how many types of rosé there are? Check out this guide to El Verano Rosado by our co-founder Pedro J. Rodríguez to learn more about your favorite style of summer wine and a few more recommendations on what to try next.
Our good amigo Philip from Williams Corner Imports will pour an amazing Carignan from southern Chile made by Louis-Antoine Luyt, a rising star that will surprise your palate with beautiful aromas of fresh maracuyá and dry cherries with a lovely acidity!
Grand Cata Co-Founders Share Their Selections
Visit us Friday for Pedro and Julio's picks, featuring hidden gems of the store's carefully curated selections. From 5-8pm, we're tasting a Chianti from Italy and a funky, aged Chilean Chardonnay. Plus, don't miss this traditional cervexa galega from Spain: Estrella de Galicia 1906 Reserva Especial. It's one of our favorite beers. Remember that as dedicated catadores, part of our due diligence in the store is to taste everything and offer you only the best!
SATURDAY: Declare Victory with these delicious Argentine wines

Join us this Saturday at 2pm as we celebrate vino victory tasting some of our own top favorites!
