Wine on the River
Listen to Monte Belmonte on WRSI — 93.9 FM as he explores wines with us on his radio show. Our staff and wine-making experts talk with Monte as he learns about wine. Informative and very entertaining!
These are the wines that we have tasted most recently in the Wine Bunker:
July 2020: Wines of the Month
July 10: Monte’s Grateful Dead-themed COVID grocery outfit pays tribute (?) to the redundancy of the Grateful Dead. Monte and the Wine Snobs at State Street taste some wonderful and affordable French wines
July 3: Because of COVID, once again YOU don’t get to try the Wine of The Month at State Street. But Monte will do it for you. A $7.99 Carménère? Yes, please
June 26: What pairs well with hot and humid weather? Rosé. And the Wine Snobs at State Street have some nice affordable suggestions.
June 19: The COVID Cowboy (summertime edition!) drinks some delicious affordable Tempranillo, which is great for sangria, with the Wine Snobs at State Street.
June 18: Andy Fisk, the Executive Director of the Connecticut River Conservancy and new trustee of the organization and KICKASS CHEF, Neftalí Duran, came to The Belmonte backyard on the banks of the Connecticut River to learn about this bizarre anadromous creature, to eat it with some wine, and to find out how eating it might be a good way to help the species thrive. Listen to their conversation and view some photos below
June 5: Monte and The Wine Snobs from State Street taste the June Wines of the Month because you can’t. Unless you buy it.
May 22: Captain Jack’s Roadside Shack in Easthampton has temporarily moved up the road and essentially becomes the first restaurant open to dine there. Luckily there is a lot of outside at Captain Jack’s and Coronaut Monte and The Wine Son from State Street are the first two to sample this year’s clam offerings paired with delicious wines. The Captain is still BYOB.
May 15: The Wine Snobs & The COVID Cowboy drink Chardonnay from State Street’s new “thoughtless wines.”
