‘A Time For Wine II’ Tastings Continue Friday and Saturday, July 27-28
ATLANTIC CITY — A Time For Wine II, which opened in the beginning of July on the second level of Caesars (near Mia restaurant) as a complement to its smaller flagship store in the Tropicana, hosted the first of three taste samplings on Thursday night, July 26, as a prelude to Caesars Entertainment’s 2012 Food and Wine Festival (through July 29).
Two more samplings are scheduled for tonight (Friday, July 27, from 7-9pm), where guests can enjoy Nucky’s Boardwalk Red and Nucky’s Speak Easy Reserve wines (as well as have the opportunity to purchase autographed copies of Judge Nelson Johnson’s acclaimed novel Boardwalk Empire) and Saturday night, July 28, when there will be a Goose Island Beer sampling featuring Honker’s Ale, India Pale Ale, Belgium Style Matilda and Sofie ales, and seasonal brew Summertime from 7-9pm. Thursday’s sampling included varieties of Castello Banfi Wines from Italy, among them Belnero, Cum Laude, San Angelo, Rosso de Montalcino and Rosa Regale.
“A Time For Wine II sets itself apart from traditional liquor shops because we cover the gamut,” says A Time For Wine II co-owner Janet Markowitz, who also owns Chester’s Plants & Flowers in Atlantic City with her husband Chris. “Anyone looking to pick up a bottle of their favorite brand can stop in and choose from our huge selection, but what really makes A Time For Wine II a rare treasure are the nontraditional items we offer, such as Lamborghini cigar lighters, wine canteens and gift baskets. We can even create personalized bottles of wine. A Time For Wine II is here for Atlantic City visitors and locals alike; we want to be everyone’s go-to store.”
A Time For Wine II is located on the second floor of Caesars and just minutes from the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The store features over 1,800 square feet of champion cigars, craft beers, upscale liquors and superior wines. The amenity caters to people looking for reasonably priced spirits in a lavish setting, with guests choosing from over 1,000 different brand wines, 350 cigars, 200 liquors and 100 domestic and international beers.
Customers will find comfort in knowing that their favorite selections like Grey Goose vodkas, Rogue beers, Francis Coppola wines and Romeo and Juliet cigars will always be in stock. Connoisseurs seeking the exotic will be enticed by the high-end brands of A Time For Wine II, such as a 25-year-old, single-malt bottle of Glenlivet scotch, a bottle of Gran Patron Burdeos tequila, which has been aged in trench Boudreaux wine casks, or even Cigar Aficionado Magazine’s number one rated cigar, Alec Bradley’s Prensado. HBO’s Boardwalk Empire fans even have reason to indulge, as A Time For Wine II is the exclusive home of, and the only place to find, Nucky’s Boardwalk Red and Nucky’s Speak Easy Reserve.
