Balducci’s will be presenting the following wine selections which can be purchased beginning Monday, Jan. 18, in-store by calling 703-448-3828. Upon arrival at the store, you must present your Uncorked registration receipt to a wine manager or store manager to receive the discounted price of $55.

 

  • Balducci's Asolo Prosecco
    Hailing from the famous Gasparini estate near the town of Venegazzu, our Prosecco is lively, toasty and creamy with hints of hazelnut and candied fruits and a long, refreshing finish. Perfect as an aperitif. The Brunch Wine.

  • Balducci's Sauvignon Blanc Curico Valley 2020
    Lemon and lime aromas are complemented by a hint of white pepper in this silky-textured wine. Tangy citrus and green apple flavors and a refreshing snap on the finish.

  • Balducci's Pinot Noir Momtazi Vineyard 2016
    100% sourced from the Momtazi family's organic and biodynamic vineyard south of McMinnville. Bright acid entry, balanced by assertive fine-grained tannins and a full mid-palate. Certified Demeter.

  • Balducci's Cabernet Sauvignon California 2018
    Sourced from vineyard sites in Lodi San Joaquin Valley, the dry Mediterranean climate concentrates the ripe berry character. This Cabernet has lively plum flavors with oak highlights on the mid-palate and finishes with vanilla and toasty notes.


Balducci’s has also prepared a wonderful cheeseboard with an assortment of five cheeses, nuts and jams that will be featured during the tasting. This display is available at a special discount price of $25 with proof of registration and can be purchased by calling the store and speaking with a store manager, visiting the cheese department or by emailing jcoleman@balduccis.com. To ensure freshness the cheese must be pre-ordered and is available for pickup between Thursday, Feb. 4 through Sunday, Feb. 7.

Balducci’s wine selections for McLean Uncorked were carefully chosen to pair well with their upcoming Valentine's Menu. Note: The Valentine's Meal is not required for McLean Uncorked.
