7/12 Tasting with Doug from Purple Feet Wine

This is your chance to sample the delicious low-alcohol cocktail that’s served in Portugal as an aperitif.  White Port and tonic.  Our friend Doug from Purple Feet Wines will be on site to answer questions about Port, wine, and the amazing Tonic Concentrate from Jack Ruby Cocktail Company.  Please join us!  2 p.m.  Saturday July 12th.

Summertime baskets

Beautiful Baskets for a trip to the Farmer’s Market or a stroll through the Art Fair.  Made by hand in Morocco out of sturdy palm leafs, they are perfect for the beach… but I’m hauling my computer around in mine so that I get to use it every day!

Belle De Brillet

Back in stock is our favorite Belle De Brillet – a delicious blend of pear liqueur and cognac.  While it’s perfect straight and chilled, there are other ways to enjoy it:

Try it drizzled over vanilla ice cream.

Belle Royale – serve in a champagne glass 1/4 Belle de Brillet, 3/4 champagne

Belle Martini – Blend 1/3 Belle de Brillet and 2/3 vodka and pour over ice.


Saturday June 7th – Peterson Wines

Peterson Wines founder Fred Peterson will join us for the 4th year in a row for a tasting through their portfolio. Not to be missed.  Saturday afternoon from 2 – 4.

First Friday June 6th – 5-8pm Paintings of Marcia Henderson

Convivio presents the paintings and pastels of Marcia Henderson, one of our favorite artists.  She’s bringing us the fruits of a long winter of painting.  Promising lots of chickens and dogs and summer imagery.  We’ll also be sampling a perfect summer wine.

Tea Canisters

New at Convivio – beautiful, hand made tea canisters from Japan.  Perfect to keep tea, coffee or spices fresh OR would make a fabulous gift box!
