New Wines for the New Year

Be sure to stop in at Mass Ave Wine to check out what’s new. We’re getting new wines in all the time, so come by and try something you’ve never had before (and pick up an old favorite as well). Don’t forget our weekly wine tasting. Join us on Tuesdays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. for our free tasting — we sample three wines each week. And we still have a great selection of sparkling wines too!


Halloween Candy & Wine Pairing

Stop by the wine shop from now through Halloween and try our candy and wine flight — three of our Walking Dead Wines paired with fun-size treats. 

The Walking Dead Chardonnay, aged for six months in French and American oak, goes well with the toasty caramel of a 100 Grand bar. The Blood Red Blend pairs with the creamy chocolate and nuts of a Baby Ruth. And the flavors of dark black fruit and notes of mocha and spice in the Cabernet Sauvignon are a great match for a Reece’s Peanut Butter Cup.
