Dear Friends of Meza,

Fourth Friday was a fun time for those of you who were able to come out! Great food, bands and Meza was doing $1 pours of three great value wines! If you weren't able to make it we hope to see you at next months "Fourth Friday" event!

We have had a great week hosting some private wine tasting events! We hosted a bachelorette party with Lola Belle Boutique as well as a meet up group for Women of the World Travelers! Both were a great time! If you are interested in hosting your own private tasting contact us via e mail at or call us at 614.259.3101 to book an evening. Private tasting events are great for birthdays, bachelorette parties, networking events and more!

We are hoping to see lots of you next Friday May 8th at our "Hot Spanish Wines" tasting! Chris Preest will be here from Wine Trends introducing us to some exciting Spanish varietals!

June Sneak Preview

We have listed below our May events but we wanted to give you a "sneak preview" of what is in store for summer! We have another great fundraiser/tasting coming up in June to help raise money for the Pelotonia Bike Tour happening in August. 100% of the contributions from the tour go directly to The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center. We will be tasting Organic and Biodynamic wines that evening in support of this cause and in the name of living a clean, healthy lifestyle!

Also for all you ladies that came out for our first Girls Night Out tasting back in March, get ready for another night that is just for you! "Girls Night Out - Relax and Rejuvenate:" Take time out to relax and pamper yourselves..... join us for a tasting featuring some yummy Rieslings, Sparkling Moscatos, and other great wines that are meant to help you relax and rejuvenate your spirit. Katy Tombaugh, owner of Fusion Fitness in Uptown will be here with product and information about her amazing yoga sessions and Katesha Freeman, owner of The Candle Lab will be here highlighting some of her best scents and providing you with the opportunity to make your own custom candle! You will soon be able to purchase The Candle Lab candles right here at Meza! Candles and wine make for a beautiful gift for any occasion!

Meza will also be partnering with Columbus Parent Magazine for a great midweek tasting event that will help you not only find affordable wines to enjoy during the week, but we will also feature recipe suggestions that coincide with the Westerville Farmers’ Market product! The market opens in May and occurs every Wednesday, and this will be a great event that will help you get tips and recipes you can make with all your market fresh goodies and we will show you what wines to pair with your meals! This event will take place after the farmers’ market on June 17!

Details on our June events coming soon!!

Toad Hollow Unoaked Chardonnay 2007 - California Hailing from Mendocino County, this unoaked Chardonnay is 100% stainless steel fermented - no oak.

Featured Wine of the Month

2007 Veramonte Pinot Noir Reserva: This is a personal recommendation. This was a wine that we recently re-tasted. Well, to be honest, we drank it. We taste all the wines that we carry and of course, we revisit ones that we love! This Pinot Noir has become a love. It is 100% Pinot Noir from the Casablanca Valley in Chile. The balance of the ripe berries and slight acidity make this a very enjoyable wine. The price is also right for a good Pinot. Tasting Notes: It evokes aromas of red summer berries and vanilla. Bright cherry, grape and strawberry fruit flavors with touches of spicy oak; medium-to-full body and rich texture. Try this wine with mild or creamy cheeses or slow roasted meat dishes. We enjoyed the Veramonte last week with a dish or whole wheat penne with a mushroom pan sauce.....excellent combo! Veramonte Pinot Noir Reserva - $16.99 Stock up and receive 10% off of a case!
