Find the Perfect Craft Beer, Wine & Spirits To Celebrate The Minnesota Twins Return to the Playoffs!

Damn Yankees” the Broadway musical, won nominated for nine Tony Awards in 1956 and won seven of them. While we don’t believe anyone in the Minnesota Twins organization (successors to the Washington Senators depicted in the show) sold his soul to the Devil, we are hopeful for the same result in the playoffs that start tonight! You will want to have a bar fully stocked with craft beer, wine and spirits to watch the games, and, of course, Champagne to celebrate the Twins’ victory. As usual, we at 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits in downtown Minneapolis are here to help you select the perfect adult beverages to help get you through the exciting series.

Apart from the Twins making the playoffs, the Gophers are undefeated and two games away from “bowl eligible”. The Timberwolves are about to start their season. The Wild started just last night, and while it was a tough outing, there is a lot of season left to play. As for the Vikings - the team is looking for answers… we hope they find them!

With the advent of Autumn, the special events at 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits just keep on coming.

Just less than week from today is October 10th. That’s 10/10, so it is OUR DAY! We are going to celebrate the day with an absolutely FABULOUS FREE TASTING from 4 PM to 7PM. The fabulous and talented Mitch Zavada from The Wine Company has picked out half a dozen wines that are so good that we NEVER put them on tastings…unless the occasion is very special, and this one is. Be sure to join him!

October 22nd we are hosting a tasting of Burgundy and Oregon Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from the Maison Joseph Drouhin along with a few other fun things. Everyone who tastes wine at 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits knows my bias in this duel of terroir, but we are going to make it easy for everyone to taste the difference that soil and climate make in the taste and texture of these noble varieties. Who knows? I might change my opinion! (Editor's Note: Fat Chance!). To reserve your place at this tasting, call us at 612 339-4040 or drop us an e mail at The cost of admission is $25.00, but should you buy some wine at the tasting, that charge is refunded.

The NEXT DAY, October 23rd, our FALL SALE begins! The sale lasts until November 10th. The whole store will be a veritable sea of pink special tags as we offer the best prices of the season just in time for Holiday entertaining.
