Featuring a wide, international selection of fine wines, micro-brews and

Wines/Beers/liquors for bright,sunny,chilly weather

sleeping dog outside to keep me company as I read the Washington Post
newspaper ( maybe one of the last before they are no longer?! ). It was
tough being so cold and yet it got my blood flowing and thinking about all
that I have to think about this week here at Cleveland Park Wines and
Spirits. The spectrum goes from voting tonight for a new board/ officers of
the Cleveland Park Citizens Association ...

TO INCLUDING INFO  ON OUR TWO California winemaker DINNERS  :  ( ONE
with Elizabeth Spencer of ELIZABETH SPENCER , 5 Courses, 5 wines, at
Enology Wine Bar 7 PM, Monday, Oct. 26th, 2009, $65 per person plus tip and
gratuity, call : (202) 362-0362  for reservations ) ...

ONE WITH :  John  Cook ( CHALONE Winery, Amuse Bouche, First Course,
Main Course, Trio Of Cheeses @ Marcel's, Monday, Oct. 26th, 2009, $95 per
person ( all-inclusive ). TWO DINNERS THE SAME EVENING! I hate that you
have to choose but so be it. Both fine dinners to enjoy with CHALONE that
is a proven entity since the late 1970's and the new ELIZABETH SPENCER.

I am sorry to make it a choice, I never intended to do this but then
choices are good and we have enough of you interested in going to wine
dinners to please everyone concerned and involved.

I'm excited about both.

THEN THERE ARE ALL THE  " new " beers, liquors and wines to mention
and all the people that have come through this past week :

- ( Robert Whale of the ROBERT WHALE Cold-Climate Aussie/Kiwi
Selections,  ...

- as well as what was tasted here over the weekend :

- Mara Lona of G.BERTAGNOLI ( in Trentino , makes great grappas
and a limoncello-style, too  www.bertagnoli.it ) ;

- Peter Logan, winemaker of LOGAN Winery - loganwines.com.au - in
Orange, South Australia  ...

- ( and just now, Tues. 29th Sept. 2009 ) : James Wright of WINE
MONGER Selections that just tasted me on a " killer " Zweigelt ( FEILER
ARTIGER, Burgenland)  red that I asked him to pour me some of extra as I
type the rest of this email. It will sell for around $22 a bottle, or less.
I'll write more about it soon ...

and many more.

WE HAVE LOTS GOING ON as the weather turns colder. It's a great time
to be doing all of this, really so many possibilities in all the categories
that we are investigating and buying while we can and while the iron is
still really hot.

LIQUID Forms Of Alcohol To Charm, Please, Tease :


1) GOSSER beer ( On Special  $11.49 6-pack 12 oz bottles,
www.goesser.at from the GOSSER Brewery in Leobin Goss Austria ) is
something that I am just noticing here Santos : is it new?

2) ABITA " Pecan " ale brewed with Louisiana pecans ( 6-pack 12 oz
bottles On Special for $8.49, 5% alc., abita.com) from the Abita Springs in

by volume, Traditional Benedictine biere Belge D'Abbaye Rue de Maredsous 11
- 5537 Denee, Belgium  www.maredsous-usa.com , On Special for $9.49 ) comes
nicely wrapped as a gift and is here once again?  Santos, is this new or is
it just now available again?

$99.99 is " unique amongst Scotland's distilleries  in that  all parts of
the production process, from traditional malting to bottling are carried
out at the one location". I guess this ensures complete control over all
the production from start to finish and that is not as bad thing ever. Of
course the proof is in the taste.

2) HAZELBURN 8 Year-Old Campbelltown Single Malt ( triple distilled
) Scotch Whislky ( $84.99,  J. & A. MITCHELL, Scotland )  " is a triple

with herbs and spices and some good cheese, too ...

3) HOGUE Gewurztraminer 2008, $9.99 from the Columbia Valley in
Washington State is a great wine to enjoy all by itself or with some Asian

Louisiana or even some Tex-Mex ...
