Need Something To Do Tuesday?


Hey, winos, put down that paper-bag-covered bottle of rubbing alcohol incorrectly labeled "wine" and go to Twig's Cellar tonight.

You can meet Vale Wine Company's John Danielson, who's responsible for the myriad wines that this Caldwell grapery produces. From 5-8 p.m., Danielson will give out samples and regale Twig's patrons with stories of wine-drunk monsters and the continuous epic battle between grape growers and aliens who ruin their fields while trying to make crop circles that resemble Hollywood it-girls.

OK, so Danielson probably won't tackle those kinds of stories, but we imagine he'll have some interesting things to say about wine and Idaho, since he's a fourth-generation potato-state native.

So go learn about this local winery, drink some vino and get the behind-the-scenes scoop from the winemaker himself.
