In many instances, change is good. In this particular instance, change is really good. We're referring to the BIG changes happening to 1252 Tapas Bar wine list, which will be transitioning to a Spanish-dominated selection that will include everything from the most recognized Spanish labels to rare Spanish gems that can't be found just anywhere.
Along with a new selection of wines will come the debut of a Spanish red wine flight, where you'll get to try 4 wines for $20.
Before 1252 can roll out all of these changes they have to make room to start receiving wine shipments!
How you can help: 1252 Tpasa Bar still has big stock of wine, especially Captain's List bottles. Therefore, their offering Captian's List Wines at just $80/bottle (while supplies last). Come in and enjoy this fantastic deal! When you're through depleting their stock they'll unveil the shiny new wine selection.
