10th Anniversary and Wine of the Month!
Labor Day Weekend, 2016 is La Grange’s 10th Anniversary. Even though our birthday weekend is not until September we are celebrating all year long with our Wine of the Month Program! We will provide recipe pairings for the wine on our online blog and give you an extra 10% off of the featured wine of the month on the 10th day of that month!
We are kicking off the New Year with our bubbly, the Reserve Brut, as our January Wine of the Month! Come in on the 10th of January to receive an additional 10% discount off bottles of our Reserve Brut! Check out this amazing recipe below from one of our wine club members:
