SUMMER OF ROSÉ
This summer, the Bacchus family of restaurants is donating $1 per glass and $5 per bottle of rosé sold, to The V Foundation.
The V Foundation was formed by ESPN and Jim Valvano in 1993 to invest in the careers of young physicians and scientists dedicated to finding cures for cancer.

Every Wednesday, we pay tribute to our favorite whiskey makers by opening one very special and/or rare whisk(e)y and offering one-ounce pours at lower than list prices.
Week of July 27: Glenfarclas 15 Year, Bacchus Partners Reserve ($8 per ounce)
Intense, yet balanced, sherry notes on the nose. The palate reveals raisins, orange peel, walnuts, and dates. A touch of water mellows the heat and brings out the sweetness. This whisky has an incredibly long and complex finish.
This scotch is the result of a partnership between Bacchus Management Group and Glenfarclas. Bacchus partners Tim Stannard and Andrew Green, along with Bacchus' bar manager Brandon Clements, traveled to Scotland to discover the perfect scoth for Bacchus' proprietary label. As a result of days and days of tasting, the team picked a very special batch, which was bottled exclusively for their restaurants.
