western reserve wines

I visited the new location the other day, which is practically right in my backyard, in Solon close to the Orange border near Brainard and Miles (between Miles Market and The American Tavern). I was looking for a bottle of chianti to braise short ribs and used the opportunity to check the place out.

The shop itself is what you might expect, lots and lots of wine from all over the world. From the 15 minutes I spent inside, I was impressed with the selection. I was even more impressed with the woman working that day. She seemed to be as excited about the short ribs as I was and showed me lots of different options that would work well with this dish. And when I finally made my choice, she (thankfully) started a file so I wouldn’t have to try and remember what I bought.

During my quick visit, I learned they have tastings (5 – 8 wines) every Saturday from 2 – 5 p.m. for $5 per person.

    I know, such a simple thing to do but can really make a big difference. I can never remember the wines I buy that I end up loving. This will come in handy.

    Any establishment with software can keep track of customer purchases. It helps both the store and the individual in calculating what products are bought. A very basic thing in todays environment.
