  • Buca Introduces Two New Wines This Fall

    Buca’s New Featured Wine This Fall

    About Columbia Winery
    For more than 50 years, Columbia Winery has embraced a legacy of progressive winemaking that has led its forward-thinking winemakers to discover new grape varieties, vineyards and blends.  Today, Winemaker Sean Hails continues this spirit of innovation, handcrafting a distinct collection of food-friendly wines from Washington State.  There, intense sunlight, coupled with a lack of rainfall, translates Columbia’s wines to a deeply concentrated color, flavor and structure in the glass.

    Now through From September 29th through November 30th, bring your family and friends to Buca and be sure to taste these innovative and flavorful wine offerings:

    • Composition Red Blend – Crafted from the most flavorful grapes across multiple vintages, with a majority selected from 2011, Composition is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah – a grape that Columbia Winery introduced to Washington State.  Rich and medium-bodied, this wine has blackberry aromas and ripe red fruit flavors of cranberry, cherry and plum that are framed by hints of spicy oak.  With a balanced acidity, soft tannins and a lingering finish, this Composition is truly a work of art.  Composition pairs beautifully with Buca’s di Beppo 1893 Salad and Eggplant Parmigiana 
    • Chardonnay – Columbia Chardonnay offers bright aromas of pear, apple and hints of tropical fruits that extend to the palate.  A balanced acidity and integrated sweet vanilla oak notes create an elegant Chardonnay that is distinctly Northwest.  Enjoy this wine Buca’s Mussels Bianca!

    Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just treating yourself and your family to dinner out, be sure to visit Buca and enjoy an Italian feast and some new special wine offerings this fall.  These limited time wine offerings are only available now through November 30th, so hurry in before it’s too late!

    When it comes to holiday gifts, what do you remember most over time, socks or celebrations? Perfume or people? New clothes or old friends?  The most precious things in life are good times spent with those we love and enjoy.  So what could be more thoughtful than the gift of an outing to a hospitable place where you can relax with friends and family, share food and fun, and make a memory or two?
