Everyone who drinks wine has been to, or at least noticed, an in-store wine tasting, whether it's a winemaker in town or a distributor pouring six of their value wines. Well, a big in-store tasting tomorrow (Saturday, October 2) is neither, but it's probably the best free wine tasting in the Twin Cities.

Haskell's BOGO sale: Buy One, Get One
I am amazed by the average wine drinker who pays top dollar for their wine. Many say they are having a party and need wine fast or their local wine shop is so convenient. The worst advice ever given to a wine buyer was to purchase wine at a shop right by your house. What happens if you live next to the hole-in-the-wall shop with salespeople who aren't familiar with the term Bordeaux? My advice: Shop during a sale, and find a fine wine retailer that can provide you with service.

Surdyk's Wine Shop Sale through July 24
There is no better time to shop for quality wines than during a sale. You can easily save $3 to $10 a bottle, which you can use to buy more wine. Surdyk's big summer wine sale runs today through July 24, and with the store's try-before-you-buy approach, consumers can sample over 10 wines daily (10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.) for free. On Friday and Saturday the samples are continously flowing. One of my favorite importers, Acquitane, will be pouring some great wines from Bordeaux on Friday and Saturday.

If you want to impress your friends, pair the wines you find at Surdyk's with summer party food, using the following guide.

Surdyk's is a Twin Cities institution and has been serving consumers since 1934. Today through Saturday, Surdyk's Heart Healthy Sale is offering 20 percent off all of its wines.

In 1979 Surdyk's moved to its current Northeast location and over the years expanded its business by selling fine cheeses and olive oil and increasing its shelf space for fine wine.

Sorella
Sale through May 22
I love asking people the question, "How do you save money on wine?" Many say they buy by the case, or the comedian in the group will say don't buy wine at all. The key is buying wine on sale, as the average savings are $3 to $5 per bottle at most shops. Sorella (the old Liquor Depot) is having a sale that runs through May 22, and you can pick up a few bottles for your next dinner party.
