How do I love Vine & Table in Carmel, Indiana? Let me count the ways. 1. Every Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., Vine & Table offers free wine tastings.  This is a great way to learn a little bit about wine, get some recommendations and pick a bottle to take home. 2. There also is a free beer tasting from 3 to 6 p.m. Impress the guys at the next game with your knowledge of the best domestic and imported beer. 3. Pick 24 Release Parties. On the first Wednesday of every month, Vine  & Table samples 24 featured wines under $24. The market side of the store even provides gourmet snacks. I think this would be a good girls night out! The next Pick 24 Release Party is August 3. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.   4. Try a Wine & Cheese Pairing class to learn about wines from specific regions and the cheese that goes best with each. There is a French Wine and Cheese Pairing class on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. Registration is $15. 5. They also offer sophisticated gift baskets if you want to be the guest every hostess remembers! 6. And if that is not enough, Vine & Table also has café dining that features gourmet (and affordable) sandwiches.  There are so many great reasons to make Vine & Table your go-to place for your next romantic picnic, family dinner or summer cocktail party. They have a terrific staff that will make suggestions based on the event and your tastes. But if you ask me, my personal pick would be the Saint Germain Elderflower Liqueur—I think it is the perfect level of sweet for a summer drink.  Go find your favorite reason to visit Vine & Table soon!
