At Tess’ Kitchen Store we believe in getting you “your right wine”

Have you and a friend or family member ever gone wine tasting to find that the wine you thought divine your companion ended up pouring out?  That’s because each individual experiences flavors differently due to differing numbers of taste buds.  This variance can dramatically alter how each individual perceives food and drink, especially wine.

Wine has four main factors:  brightness, fruit, bold, and sweet.  Each individual has a “palate,” or personal preferences based upon these four components.  You may prefer one more than others; some you may not desire at all. Tess’ Kitchen Store will assist you in determining your personal palate, allowing you to readily identify wines you will both appreciate and enjoy.

Tess’ now carries wine and will be displaying wines by palate type, making it easy to find a wine that you will appreciate.  In addition, one of our wine specialists can also help you select the perfect wine for that special dinner.

Tess’ Kitchen Store Wine Clubs

Tess’ is very excited to provide two wine clubs for our customers.  Each of these are ongoing subscriptions with new “collections” being offered every other month.  They make GREAT gifts as well.

The Vintner Club – $29.99/ bi-monthly

Members will receive two reasonably priced bottles of wine.  Members may choose: two whites, two reds, or one of each, and may be picked up every other month.

The Sommelier Club – $89.99/ bi-monthly

Designed for the more adventurous, members will receive four bottles of wine.  Wines will range from “enjoy now” to “save and cellar”  and include wines from around the world. Wines may be picked up every other month. Also included is a companion newsletter with stories about the wines, recipes, and suggested food pairings.

A Great Gift: Both of these Clubs are available as an option for gifts.  Just let us know how many “collections” you would like to purchase.
