Best Weekly Wine Tastings


It’s one thing to taste wines in a vineyard’s salesroom; it’s quite another when you do it at a wine shop as good as NEWPORT WINE CELLAR. Owners David and Maria Glade turned their favorite hobby into a livelihood. They’ve tasted every bottle in their store, and they can actually describe the taste of each wine. Every Friday from 4 to 7 pm and on Saturday from 3 to 6 pm, they share that knowledge at free wine tastings. They explain which cheese goes with which wine (they also happen to have a new cheese shop, Le Petit Gourmet, right next door); they get people to try something they think they don’t like; they point out bargains. They have 400 labels, half of them under $30, some as low as $7 (they also carry a few craft beers and microbrews). And they offer Wednesday evening wine classes throughout the year, focusing on a different theme, grape, or vineyard each time. | 24 Bellevue Avenue, Newport | 401.619.3966 |
