Vino Vino is thrilled to announce that University of Texas professors Jacqueline Toribio and Barbara Bullock will be joining us on Tuesday, January 26, for the Stand with Haiti benefit, hosted by Vino Vino and featuring musical guests Kat Edmonson and friends.

Professors Toribio and Bullock have spent quite a bit of time in Haiti, studying the island’s dialects and its rural culture. Next Tuesday, they will share some of their experiences and talk about why they support Partners in Health as a great charity resource for Haiti during the current crisis.

Please join us! VINO VINO WILL DONATE 50% OF RETAIL SALES ON THE DAY OF THE EVENT TO PARTNERS IN HEALTH.

Stand With Haiti

In other news… we like wine that tastes like dirt…

Last night we opened Domaine Combier 2005 Crozes Hermitage Clos de Grive single-vineyard 100% Syrah from the Rhône Valley (France).

This wine is chewy and stinky, all earth and savory (mushroom and earth) in the mouth, balanced by lip-smacking red fruit and bright acidity. A great pairing for the bison sliders on the menu.

$60 a bottle (whether you drink it at Vino Vino or take it home).

For every bottle you buy to take home next Tuesday, Vino Vino will donate 50% of the sale to Partners in Health Hope to see you there!
