Gary Kramer Guitar Cellar’s tasting room is on Riverside Ave., a block or two off the Paso downtown square (which means there are not going to be any parking issues). I really had no idea what to expect because I had not heard much about it. Annie and I went in and I was blown away by the tasting room alone. There are amazing guitars hung all over the place and it really is a fun spot to sit back and hang out.
You can learn about the guitar history here.
They also have an Italian Deli, learn about that here.
We need to get in and try the deli out, it looked really good. Okay…now down to the wine.
Here’s what we tasted:
2017 GSM Rose (50% Grenache 25% Syrah 25% Mourvedre) $30.00
2015 Grenache $30.00
2013 Tempranillo $34.00
2013 Cabernet Sauvignon $32.00
2014 Syrah $48.00
2015 Syrah $48.00
2016 Liquid Bondage (White port style local Chardonnay) $30.00
As I often remind you of, we are not wine critics and never want to be. That said, it’s a fun line-up of wines and a great tasting room. We enjoyed the Rose (because we are Rose whores) along with the Grenache and Tempranillo. The side by side with the Syrah’s was interesting as well. Also, they have a couple of beers on tap if you’re ready for a cold one!
Thanks to Brook, the tasting room manager and wine wench (seriously, it says that on her business card), for taking care of us and educating us on the wines. Until next time…cheers!
