The Friday after Thanksgiving is anticipated by many as the greatest opportunity to save money while shopping for the upcoming gifting season. We have some mad-savings for you, when you shop locally at vomFASS Madison Perhaps the greatest of these is the savings of time (although the others are pretty great, too). You can find something for everyone in our tasting room.
Our oils and vinegars can help good meals become great. Choose from our large selection of sparkling specialty bottles to make your gourmet gift even more alluring. Want to give the gift of travel without leaving home? We invite you to tour our excellent whiskies from around the world — they hail from America, Scotland, Ireland, India, Japan, and Sweden. Organic craft-distilled Tequilas, from Blanco to the incredible sipping Añejo, can make any gathering a fiesta to be remembered. Our beautiful array of liqueurs pulls double duty as distinctive tipplers — by themselves or gracing the palate as part of cocktails, to be remembered long after the parties are over. Remember to pick up several bottles of wine to enjoy or gift from our carefully curated collection of wines —from Asti to Zinfandel, wine is the ribbon of flavor that can truly elevate the dining experience.
