Book Now – First Prix-Fixe Week in over a year!

Our first week long prix-fixe was in 2011 and revolved around our five-year restaurant birth date.  This set price, four-course, multiple-option menu was designed to replicate the first menu ever at Carpe Vino (circa 2006).  The response was overwhelming, and the monthly prix-fixe series was born, continuing nearly every month (excluding December) for 5 years, ending January of 2017.

March has been providing a bounty rain and the spring harvest is going to be chock-full of delightful treats. This got us to thinkin’…why not do a prix-fixe?  SOOOOO…SECURE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW because the week of APRIL 24th-APRIL 30th “PRIMAVERA IN ITALIA” will be available at Carpe Vino.  This FOUR-COURSE (multiple choices) prix-fixe menu will be “utilizing spring harvest with Italian inspiration” and costs $64.95/person (not including tax/gratuity).  A menu is still in the works and will be released soon, very soon, but FOR NOW click the button below and reserve your table today!

Today’s Deal ~ 2015 De Morgenzon “DMZ” Chardonnay

$18.95/bottle or $14.95/bottle on 6+


Its time to take a journey to one of South Africa’s premier grape growing regions and stock up on a premium value driven chardonnay…The 2015 De Morgenzon “DMZ” Chardonnay.  The “CV Sourcing Team” tasted this wine at the beginning of May for an event we’re doing next month (details coming shortly) and we knew right away that the CV faithful would FALL IN LOVE with this wine.  Plus, with a discount of $14.95/bottle on six or more you can’t beat it!

De Morgenzon is Dutch for “the morning sun,” which is a befitting name for this boutique winery located in the hills above the region of Stellenbosch. De Morgenzon winery has a 350 year winemaking heritage where their goal is to produce CLASSIC, ELEGANT, and OPULENT wines that convey amazing quality & accessibility.

For those in the chardonnay market that want to get off the beaded path then look no further.  The 2014 DMZ Chardonnay is an excellent wine indicative of one the most celebrated regions of South Africa.  It is reminiscent of a California-style chard but with labor being so much cheaper (in S. Africa to Cali) the consumer is receiving an OUTSTANDING product for the $.  On the nose, you receive alluring hints of VANILLA w/ plenty of TROPICAL PINEAPPLE & GUAVA nuances.  Your palate is invigorated by RICH and BOLD flavors of RIPE YELLOW PEAR, APRICOT, and WHITE PEACH that is accented by layers of VANILLA SPICE and TOASTY OAK.  The finish is WELL-BALANCED and offers a THIRST-QUENCHING acidity that leaves you wanting glass after glass.  Certainly the wine is easily enjoyed on its own but will pair nicely with hard cheeses and the DMZ’s crisp minerality lends itself to roast chicken or a prawn risotto.

We have TEN cases in our warehouse that are ready to be picked up or shipped immediately.  So, all you need to do now is click the BUY DMZ CHARDONNAY NOW button and prepare to find your new favorite chardonnay for under 15 bucks!

Winery Tasting Notes: “The DMZ is De Morgonzon’s value label, where the objective is to produce classic, elegant, well-balanced wines that over-deliver in terms of quality for price.  Enticing citrus and tropical fruit aromas lead to a lush, concentrated palate.  Ripe notes of peach, pineapple and apple are tinged with delicate hints of vanilla, butterscotch, caramel and toast, all backed by a vibrant acidity and a beautiful minerally edge.”
