No, not the restaurant. The real Outback consists of the western third of the country of Australia. The population—and most importantly, the grape growing, and winemaking in this region—is concentrated in the southwest corner. The main city is Perth.
The 1974 tune by Mac Davis, called “Stop and Smell the Roses,” has been hijacked by City Vino for our themed rosé tasting this weekend, which shall now be known as Stop and Smell the Rosés. Of course, our City Vino staff were not even a twinkle in our parent’s eyes in 1974 , so this song was played for us as an “oldie” in the 1990s, during our formative years . That’s our story, and we’re sticking to it.
As I write this week’s blog, the temperatures are dipping to winter-like numbers, putting a bit of a delay on our spring mood, but this will pass soon. Spring is a time of rebirth – the early (yet somewhat fickle) surfacing of the crocuses and daffodils, the bright yellow sprigs of forsythia, and pink tinges of the cherry trees blooming all leading to an explosion of green everywhere.
Reflecting on the year 2021, City Vino would like to thank you, the Fredericksburg community, for supporting small businesses again this year. Whether you have visited our shop once or a hundred times over the past couple of years, we appreciate the opportunity to get to know you, the wines you like, and the chance to introduce you to new-to-you wines.
Greetings from your friends at City Vino! We are here to provide gift-giving suggestions so you can “Spread the Holiday Cheer” to family, friends, colleagues, teachers, or even something for your own enjoyment at the dining room table.
