Here’s an imaginary conversation we just made up.
“Hey, what should we get Dad?”
“How about a bathrobe so he won’t wander around on Christmas morning in that ugly plaid thing.”
“Yeah, since he lost the belt for that, it’s been kind of rough. But where can we get a nice one?”
“Well, ShopBorgata has a beautiful Waffle Terry Bath Robe.”
“It has a sheered waffle face with a looped terry lining and it comes with a belt. Not to mention that it’s 25 percent off as part of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s holiday sale at ShopBorgata.com.”
“That’s great. Problem solved. Does ShopBorgata have anything that would be good for Aunt Tilly?”
“Of course it does.”
Hey it could happen. But what can easily happen is visiting ShopBorgata.com and finding some great holiday gift ideas. And that 25 percent off holiday sale wasn’t imaginary, it’s real.
We’ve all seen wine aficionados going through their routine as they sample their classic wines.
You know—the swirl in the glass to check the color, the sniffing of the bouquet, the swishing of the wine in the mouth to pick up its accents and flavors.
It’s one of the great joys of wine selection and part of the education Vintage Wine Boutique at The Shoppes at The Water Club has always given would-be wine connoisseurs.
As for beer drinkers, well, that’s a little different right? The main taste element is whether it’s cold; it’s hard to see the color and sniff the bouquet from a can isn’t it?
Au contraire, mon amie.
At Vintage, we take beer as seriously as we take our classic selection of wines. And so we’re introducing a new line of craft beers guaranteed to turn any beer drinker into a connoisseur of the hops. These are beers so finely crafted, they stand up to scrutiny as well as any fine wine.
A lot of us that enjoy a casual glass of wine now and then know that there’s a lot more to the taste of the grape than we’ve taken in so far.
We hear our friends talking about bouquets and body and aftertastes and pairing with cuisine, but for us it’s pretty much red goes with meat, white with fish and sweeter wines can go with dessert.
And then we pick up a bottle of plonk because we like the picture on the bottle (that’s right, we went there with plonk).
But this doesn’t have to be you anymore. Vintage Wine Boutique at The Water Club is putting an educational twist on wine this summer with The Wine Classroom, a series of wine classes that takes an international trip around the wine drinking world. Discover a world of wine with Borgata’s wine professionals, learn about wine pairings and sample some exceptional varietals (Ha, varietals, we’re already learning).
