Just a heads up about a special event we’ve got for you this Saturday!
As you know, every Saturday, Adega hosts a free wine or beer tasting from 2pm-5pm, where we give you the chance to try some new and different items from our shelves. This Saturday, June 30th, we’re excited to have Marcus Johnson joining us in store with his brand-new line of wine, Flo.
Marcus, a longtime friend of Adega, will be here talking about his wine, the Flo project, and signing bottles. We’ll be playing his internationally-acclaimed music, and we’ll have some CDs to sell, too! Marcus Johnson is a DC resident, world-renowned jazz musician, and lifestyle entrepreneur. His albums have achieved chart success and critical acclaim, and he has been nominated for an NAACP Image Award alongside such greats as Wynton Marsalis and Vanessa Williams. (If none of this rings any bells, then you may know him as the headliner of the Silver Spring Jazz Festival.)
We had a chance to try both Flo wines; a red blend and a Chardonnay, both from California. The wines are well-crafted, with an eye towards approachability and a subtlety that makes them deceptively drinkable. We’re proud to showcase these wines this Saturday, and are honored to be working alongside such an accomplished artist on his newest artistic endeavor.
The event will be this Saturday, 2pm-5pm. Tastings of Flo will be offered, and bottles and CDs will be on sale. Come early!
