23 January 2010 – Charlie’s Restaurant and Irish Pub at the Historic Water Street Inn is proud to announce the new arrival of the 2007 vintage of the Alsacian Gentil by French winemakers Hugel & Fils. This fine addition to Charlie’s winelist is offered at $29 per bottle and is a blend of Gewurtztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Sylvaner.
Gentil “HUGEL” 2007
In Alsace, the 2007 vintage was full of surprises, but pleasant surprises !
Classic “Hugel” wines are made exclusively from grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract, in a dozen of the most favoured localities around Riquewihr.
Youthful pale green in colour, very brilliant, it has a nice clean, open bouquet, elegant and fresh, perfumed with aromas of spring blossom, jasmine, white rose, green apple and white peach.

From Bill Ward’s Blog at:
“As I’ve been known to rail against restaurant wine prices, I always like to pass along kudos to places that go against that tide.
Latest example: Charlie’s Restaurant and Irish Pub at the Water Street Inn in Stillwater, which is offering up a lot of bottles at less than retail. Check out these prices: $67 for the delicious Washington blend Col Solare, $30 for Silverado merlot, $66 for Masi Amarone Classico, $47 for Cakebread chardonnay, $115 for Nicolas Feulillate Palmes d’Or Brut (cin cin!).
Yes, those are higher-priced wines, and that’s where the best bargains fall on this list. But there’s a lot less gouging at the lower price points than at most other places, plus 10 very reasonable priced by-the–glass options.
With two swell wine bars (Marx and Domacin) and now this kind of pricing at Water Street, Stillwater seems to have become a veritable mecca for wining while dining.”

The Grille at the Historic Water Street Inn in downtown Stillwater announces its new wine list.
Chuck & Judy Dougherty, owners of the Inn, have always believed that great food deserves great wine to go with it. One of their disappointments when dining at other restaurants is that they have overpriced their wines. The Grille & Charlie’s Irish Pub at the Historic Water Street Inn will never charge more than $15 over our purchase price for any bottle of wine on our list, states Chuck.
Other restaurants are doing half price wine night; we believe you should get a great bargain every night of the week. If we did half price wine, we would be selling it below our cost.
