Hola Everyone,

And Welcome back to, ‘That Wine Has the Nose’! On this episode we’ll be discussing tastings, new wines at Casa J, why expensive wines seem to taste better, and the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow.


Please join us this Good Friday 3/30/18 for a Good Wine tasting from 6-8pm for a trip down wine lane. We will have a very light tapas menu offer. It’s $5 per person to attend.

We will NOT be having a high end tasting this Saturday (as we are closing @ 4pm) we will resume next week!

As a side note please do not bring small children to wine tastings. This is an adult love affair with wine. Not to mention the glass house you’re bringing your child into. So please be considerate of the business and of the others that are also trying to have a good time and use Casa J as an escape from their daily routines.

Scientists have discovered that the decision-making and motivation center in the brain plays a pivotal role in such price biases to occur. The medial pre-frontal cortex and the ventral striatum are particularly involved in this…..
