Sunday, May 5th is “Cinco de Mayo!” Though we will NOT be open on Sunday, you can still get your “Cinco de Mayo” fix at Carpe Vino Thursday – Saturday. On Thursday, May 2nd from 6-8PM, CV Wine Club Members can taste SIX different agave spirits (Tequila & Mezcal) in the Carpe Vino wine mine. Next to whiskey, agave is the fastest growing segment in the spirits industry and CV has taken a very quiet, but extremely calculated approach to growing our collection of some of these harder-to-find Tequilas and Mezcals. Are you a lover of Tequila and Mezcal? Than you must come Thursday night (no tickets or reservations necessary! Are you one of those that hate Tequila and Mezcal…just the thought of it makes you squirm? THAN THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST ATTEND EVENT, because this line-up will most definitely change your mind!
