ITALY : FRIULI-VENEZIA GIULIA : COLLIO
DRY, FULL BODIED, ORCHARD FRUIT, BRIGHT, UNOAKED
Its richness is reminiscent of Pear Williams, banana, and Acacia flowers wrapped in a slight scent of fresh apricot. Pleasant flavors of pear syrup and quince peels. Bright, well balanced, with a long, fruity finish.

NEW ZEALAND : AUCKLAND : KUMEU & HUAPAI
MEDIUM-BODIED, FIG, PEACH, MINERALITY, CRISP, OAK
A combination of oak and stainless steel fermentation results in a hefty mid-palate and an amalgam of tropical fruit notes. Citrus and salty sea air aromas waft on the bouquet while cleansing acidity and ripe fruit dazzle the palate. Ki’ora mate!

USA : CALIFORNIA : SIERRA FOOTHILLS
Zinfandel, Petit Sirah
FULL BODIED, BLACK FRUIT, PURPLE FLOWERS, EARTHY, NEUTRAL OAK
Great balance of fruit-black raspberry, cassis, and hints of cherry- and firm acidity, making for a great velvety yet structure wine. Incredible notes of dark chocolate and black pepper spice with underlying notes of lavender and violets

NEW ZEALAND : AUCKLAND
MEDIUM-LIGHT-BODIED, RASPBERRY, STRAWBERRY, FLORAL, SPICE, OAK
A very light and refreshing style of pinot from winemaker Michael Brajkovich, who was New Zealand’s first Master of Wine (MW). Fresh, light, and dry, with a vibrant edge and nice hint of chalky tannins — the palate is lightweight yet fruity with a lick of oak spice and angular acidity.
France : Loire : Touraine : Azay-le-Rideau
Gamay, Old Vine Grolleau, Cab Franc, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc
LIGHT-MEDIUM BODIED, GLOU-GLOU, RED CURRANT, BRIGHT, JUICY, NO OAK
Fresh, fruity, and fragrant. Made in the ‘glou-glou’ style (French for ‘glug glug’), this easy drinking quaffer delivers on many levels. Carbonic maceration gives it a slight Coca-Cola funkiness, a calling-card for natural reds. Dark red and blue fruits shine with underlying acidity. Chill it and enjoy!

CALIFORNIA: CENTRAL COAST
MED-FULL BODIED, CITRUS, MINERAL, SPICE, CRISP, VANILLA, OAK
Pithy citrus, raw ginger, and oyster shells tantalize on this wine’s beautifully fragrant nose. Notes of honey, tart green apple, and salted butter give this wine wonderful texture. Zesty acidity and saline on the finish leave your palate entranced.

FRANCE : LOIRE VALLEY : SANCERRE
LIGHT-BODIED, STRAWBERRY, CHERRY, HERBS, FLORAL, NO OAK
An absolutely superb Sancerre Rosé from 100% Point Noir grapes grown by the Bourgeois family in their home village of Chavignol! After finishing fermentation in stainless steel, the juice rests for 6 months on the fine lees before bottling, giving it greater texture and depth than many of its peers.
Pair With: Seared Salmon with Summer Vegetables
France : Alsace
DRY, MEDIUM-FULL BODIED, STONE FRUITS, CRISP, HONEY, ALMOND
Declassified Grand Cru Alsatian vineyards. This is the perfect example of how an Alsatian wine pinot gris should express itself: clean, crisp acidity, yellow peach, mirabelle plum, and acacia honey.
FRANCE : LOIRE VALLEY : POULLY-FUMÉ
MED-BODIED, GRAPEFRUIT, MELON, STONE FRUIT, MINERAL, FLINT, OAK
‘Les Charmes’ is a wonderful example of classically styled Pouilly-Fumé (meaning: it is much richer in texture than Sauvignon Blanc from other appellations in the region, such as Sancerre). Hand-harvested from 45 year old vines; native yeast ferment in steel tanks; aged in very old oak barrels.
PAIR WITH: Heirloom Tomato Tart
OREGON : WILLAMETTE VALLEY
MED-FULL-BODIED, RASPBERRY, PEPPER, VANILLA, EARTH, SMOKE, FRENCH OAK
Powerful Pinot from the misty northern slopes of Oregon’s Willamette Valley…Although “Nevermore” makes a loud entrance with its display of lush dark fruit, spice, and fine, powdery tannins, it clearly shows a respect and influence from the food-friendly and elegant stylings of Old World Pinot, too. Quoth the Raven, “Nevermore.”
PAIR WITH: Roast Pork with a Cranberry Glaze
FRANCE : LANGUEDOC-ROUSILLON
FULL-BODIED, RASPBERRY, MINERAL, BAKING SPICE, EARTH, NO OAK
This tremendously rich, fruit-forward, and food-friendly blend is primarily Carignan from 70 year old vines, and 10% Syrah from 40 year old vines. A good bottle study for the power and versatility of the oft-overlooked Carignan grape, it’s not to be missed if you enjoy lighter styles of Zinfandel, Merlot, or a Côtes de Rhône blend.
ECOLOGY : Biodynamic
PAIR WITH :Roasted Chicken with Mushroom Gravy
CALIFORNIA : SONOMA
Sunny, tropical notes of passion fruit, grapefruit, and green herbs. Crisp, clean, and refreshing alone as an aperitif, or with salads, seafood, and poultry.
** Kosher for Passover

MEDIUM BODIED, RED FRUIT, PURPLE FLOWERS, BRIGHT, USED OAK
A gentle expression of Pinotage that shows the beautiful marriage of Pinot Noir & Cinsault. Aromas of dried savory, mulberry, cassis liqueur and forest floor. On the palate, it is velvety smooth with brightness, delicate hint of smoke and baking cocoa.
New Zealand : Marlborough
DRY, DEEPLY AROMATIC, GRAPEFRUIT, CRISP, MINERALITY, JASMINE, NO OAK
Kia ora mate! This delectable wonder from down under is beautifully fragrant offering hints of tropical fruit and delicate floral notes on the bouquet. Mouthwatering acidity with notes of pink grapefruit, tart pineapple, and stony minerality fill the palate. It’s a beach in a bottle!
California : Central Coast : Monterey County
MEDIUM-BODIED, CRISP, BRIGHT, TROPICAL FRUITS, MINERAL, NO OAK
‘La Marea’ is the pet project of winemaker Ian Brand (of I. Brand), and shines a light on the terroir of the Monterey Bay area of California with the help of exclusively Spanish varietals. This offering is crisp, mineral driven, and packed with acidity. Fresh tropical fruits and saline show on the nose and are enhanced on the palate.
CALIFORNIA : NAPA VALLEY
DRY, FULL BODIED, BLACK FRUIT, WARM SPICES, OAK PRESENT
Black fruits excite the front palate with notes of currant, plum, and blackberry. Subtle spice notes of cedar and sandalwood carry on the mid-palate with added notes of coffee. Incredible length and persistent finish.

90% Sangiovese, 10% Merlot

FOOD PAIRING: Meats & Pasta
PORTUGAL : ALTENEJO : PORTALEGRE
Grand Noir de la Calmette, Alicante Bouschet, Trincadeira, Castelão, Aragónez, Arinto, Fernão Pires
MED-BODIED, STRAWBERRY, BLACK CHERRY, ORANGE PEEL, LICORICE, EARTH, USED OAKThe complex, elegant, and even — dare we say it — Burgundian (??) wines of Vitor Claro and Rita Ferreira at Dominó Winery come from a small, old vine vineyard of co-planted varietals in the Portalegre district of Alentejo, which is known for its uniquely cool climate in an otherwise warm region. ‘Salão Frio’ is their first — and, to date, most important — wine. A true pleasure to drink, it pairs well with a remarkable range of flavors, and is blessedly only about 11% alcohol (because just one glass is certainly not enough).
FOOD PAIRING: Thanksgiving
SPAIN : MADRID : VINOS DE MADRID
MED-BODIED, STRAWBERRY, BLACK CHERRY, ORANGE PEEL, LICORICE, EARTH, USED OAK
While not yet an official DO, the Sierra de Gredos is home to a emerging class of young, passionate, and innovative winemakers reimagining a region long seen as suitable only for the production of inexpensive, bulk product in favor of unapologetically brazen, terroir-driven wines. This pure and expressive bottle from Bodega Marañones is one such shining example of the truly incredible potential of Gredos wines; if you like being ahead of the curve, we strongly suggest you pay it some attention!

FOOD PAIRING: Zucchini-Chorizo Sweet Corn Bake
ITALY : VENETO
LIGHT-BODIED, WILD RED BERRIES, MINERAL, SPICE, SMOKE, NO OAK
“Sehnsucht” (meaning, “wistful longing” in German) is a fresh, summer-y rosé with ripe red fruit, clean minerality, and savory, subtle bites of pepper and smoke on the finish. At the foot of Monte Grappa in Veneto is the small, family-owned winery from whence it came — certified “natural” by the Vinnatur Association, Calalta’s reliance on natural, minimal intervention processes in the vineyard and in the cellar is nothing short of militant…and hey, it works.

PAIR WITH : Arugula Salad with EOO, Lemon, and Parmesan Cheese
