  1. Mark Haisma Cornas 2016

    Mark Haisma Cornas 2016

    Winemaker Mark Haisma worked at Yarra Yering in Australia for 10 years before moving to France to make stellar wine that marries the best of the two countries. This comes from 60-year-old vines planted on terraced decomposed granite soils at the southern part of Cornas. An opulent but balanced wine, this is meaty, spicy, and juicy with aromas of blackberry, plum, and pepper and a grainy, stemmy tannic structure. Generous and sophisticated. Learn More
  2. Regueiro Alvarinho/Trajadura Vinho Verde 2018

    Regueiro Alvarinho/Trajadura Vinho Verde 2018

    Coming from Minho, one of the higher quality Vinho Verde areas, this is a blend of 70% Alvarinho and 30% Trajadura – two grapes which add more alcohol and weight than is usually found in entry-level Vinho Verde. This is an extremely pretty wine with aromas of lemon blossom, jasmine, pear, and peach followed by vibrant, refreshing acidity and a lightly gripping palate. Perfect summer wine and a steal at this price. Learn More
  3. Valle de Passos Red Blend Portugal 2014

    Valle de Passos Red Blend Portugal 2014

    Mainly Touriga Nacional and Touriga Franca, rounded out by an old-vine field blend, all grown in the Trás-os-Montes region above the Douro. It’s everything one would expect from a Portuguese red, big, chunky, and meaty, but lifted by fresh acidity and filled out with dense aromas of red cherry, plum, blackberry, damson, and dried herbs. Drink with meat or rich barbeque food. Learn More
  4. G.D. Vajra Rosato Piedmont 2018

    G.D. Vajra Rosato Piedmont 2018

    60% Nebiollo, 20% Barbera, 20% Dolcetto. From one of our favorite Barolo producers comes this tasty rosé. It’s an unusual blend of Piemonte’s most important black grapes, for fresh, engaging aromas of strawberries, cherries, pomegranates, and orange blossom, lifted by vibrant acidity which makes this rosé especially refreshing. A very approachable rosé with a serious, thoughtful edge. Learn More
  5. COS Nero di Lupo Sicily 2017

    COS Nero di Lupo Sicily 2017

    Located at the farthest tip of South East Italy, COS has really been a front runner in the natural/minimal intervention wine movement. The soil here is so rich it has historically grown everything well, and luckily for us the economy calls for grapes. This 100% Nero d'Avola is only in concrete tanks and bottle which leads to extremely juicy fruit notes of dark cherry, raspberry, ripe plum and blackberry. Moderate acidity and tannin round out the finish. Learn More
  6. Tour des Gendres Petillant Naturel Vin de France 2018

    Tour des Gendres Petillant Naturel Vin de France 2018

    Organically-grown 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Chenin Blanc from the Bergerac region east of Bordeaux, spending six months on the lees. Alcohol is just 11%, for a very light, refreshing style. It’s fruity, easy, and very approachable, with bright, clean aromas of apples, pears, and sweet spices, as well as a subtle toasty influence from the lees. The palate is wonderfully fresh – this is light on its feet and hard to resist. Learn More
  7. Francois Chidaine "Les Argiles" Vin de France 2017
  8. A Ghost of a Chance "Empty Spaces" Chenin Blanc 2018

    A Ghost of a Chance "Empty Spaces" Chenin Blanc 2018

    This is a textbook Chenin Blanc, coming from Clarksburg, the best and most established area for the grape in California. It goes through partial malolactic fermentation to give the wine a lightly creamy mouthfeel. On the nose it’s really attractive with aromas of peach, apricot, wax, honeycomb, and gentle spice – white pepper and szechuan. The palate has lively acidity and a fine-grained texture, giving the wine a serious edge. Just 24 cases made! Learn More
  9. Minus Tide Mariah Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

    Minus Tide Mariah Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017

    Way up on Manchester Ridge, above Anderson Valley, there is some mighty tasty Pinot Noir. This is mostly clone 115, known for its aromatic intensity. 30% of the bunches went in whole cluster; the yeast was native and the wine is unfined and unfiltered. On the palate it’s refined and very pretty, fruity but structured with a grippy texture, and aromas of black pepper, clove, and dried herbs. Quietly serious. Learn More
  10. Jean-Francois Merieau "J'ose les fines bulles" Brut Touraine 2015

    Jean-Francois Merieau "J'ose les fines bulles" Brut Touraine 2015

    90% Chenin Blanc, 10% Chardonnay. This is a delicious, approachable, and easy-drinking sparkling wine from Touraine in the Loire. The Chenin-dominant blend gives the wine subtle aromatics of honeycomb, acacia, and honeysuckle, as well as green apples, pears, and peaches, while the Chardonnay gives it a fine, acidic structure. A lot of fun at this great-value price. Learn More
