Hubert Meyer, "Crémant d’Alsace Rosé"
Alsace, Crémant d'Alsace, FRA

pinot noir (NV)  $37

The Meyer family has a tradition as vignerons in Alsace in the village of Blienschwiller that dates back to 1722. In 1976, Hubert Meyer succeeded his father as the head of the domaine. His son, Pierre, returned from his studies of viticulture and oenology to take the torch in 2009. This elegant sparkling wine has acidic vivacity that’s supported with fruited notes of wild strawberry, salted cream and raspberry pureé.

vignetidelsole-prosecco.png

Vigneti del Sole, "Prosecco Treviso Frizzante"
Veneto, Prosecco, ITA

glera (NV)  $26

In 1952, brothers Natale, Nicola, Riccardo and Umberto Pasqua moved from Puglia to Veneto and established their company, Vigneti del Sole, in Verona. The family estate is now run by second and third generation Pasquas. In 2000, the family bought additional land in Puglia, where they focus on grape varietals that are indigenious to the area. This delightful little prosecco has a lively bubble and creamy notes of banana and vanilla. A light maceration on the skins gives this soft, briochy wine a little bit of acidic structure with notes of lemon zest.

lacollina-rosaluna.png

La Collina, "Rosa Luna Lambrusco"

Emilia-Romagna, 
Lambrusco dell'Emilia, ITA

lambrusco salamino (NV)  $33

La Collina is a whole-agriculture co-op founded in 1975 by 12 farmers. The farm is just outside of Reggio Emilia, the historic heart of Emilia-Romagna. Along with vineyards, the coop cultivates fruits and vegetables, grains, livestock, bees and dairy for one of the region's prime exports, Parmigiano-Reggiano. The coop was certified organic and biodynamic in 1985. Herbs and black fruit with notes of juicy pomegranate, fresh raspberries and sweet balsamic. The effervescence almost takes on a mousse-like quality.

pierre gimmonet champagne.png

Pierre Gimonnet & Fils, "Champagne Brut Sélection Belles Années"
Champagne, FRA

chardonnay (NV)  $75

It’s a grower champagne! Didier Gimonnet is the second generation of growers to direct this estate, with 28 hectares of holdings in grand and premier cru villages, predominantly in the Côte de Blancs. The winery is in the premier cru village of Cuis where Didier’s family has been growing grapes since 1750. Pierre Gimonnet, Dider’s grandfather, started bottling estate champagne in 1935. In addition to the 13.5 hectares in Cuis, Gimonnet owns 11 hectares of chardonnay vines in the grand cru villages of Cramant and Chouilly, plus another hectare in Oger and two in Vertus. Gimonnet also owns half a hectare of pinot noir, split between the grand cru of Aÿ and 1er cru of Mareuil-sur Aÿ. This champagne spends 72 months on the lees. This brings forth yeasty and creamy notes of brioche that intermingle with notes of melon and lemon zest for a mineral finish. Truly a celebration bottle!

le rocher des violettes pet nat.png

Le Rocher des Violettes, "Montlouis-sur-Loire Pétillant"
Loire Valley, Touraine, FR

chenin blanc (2017)  $43

Winemaker Xavier Weisskopf earned a degree in viticulture and enology at the wine school in Beaune.  He then went to work for Louis Barruol at Château de Saint Cosme in Gigondas. He quickly became Louis’ chef du cave, and made four vintages there. In January 2005, Xavier bought 22 acres of vines in the Saint Martin le Beau sector of Montlouis and an enormous, raw 15th century stone cellar—originally a quarry dug deep into the Loire’s chalk limestone bank in Amboise. The vines (chenin blanc, cabernet franc, grolleau and malbec) are scattered about in various parcels and were planted at different times, but the majority were put into the ground before WWII. This 100% chenin blanc is bracingly dry and effervescent. It is vinified in both stainless steel and old wooden vats and then blended to achieve balance. The result is a grassy, floral wine with a fruity and salty finish. Notes of cherry blossom and marigold perfume with golden apples. 

gabernik23-muscatpetnat.png

Gabernik 23, "Rumeni Muškat Pét Nat"

Podravje, Štajerska, SVN

rumeni muškat (NV)  $33

Gabernik 23 is a small family-owned winery in Štajerska, Slovenia. Janko Bogatic started working alongside his father in the vineyard when he was 10. He took an interest in dairy farming, but was forced to return to the family property to manage the vineyards after the sudden passing of his father. 30 years later, Janko is farming 9 hectares of vineyards situated on the slopes around Ritoznoj in the foothills of the Pohorje range. While some of the grapes are sold to another local winemaker, Janko began bottling his own wines under the Gabernik 23 label in 2018. There are many varieties planted in the Gabernik 23 vineyards, but the focus is on the less fashionable varieties, like yellow muscat and zweigelt. This is a delightfully rosy and tropical sparkling wine. The large bubbles and persistent effervescence show notes of pineapple, honeysuckle and a kick of argula-like green spice.  

huntersestate-orbispetnat.png

Hunter's Estate, "Orbis Moderandi Petillant Naturel"

Marlborough,Wairau Valley, NZL

sauvignon blanc (2021)  $32

Hunter’s Estate is one of the oldest in the Marlborough region. The family were pioneers along with Cloudy Bay. Winemakers Peter and James McDonald are young winemakers who wanted to create a line with some whimsy, made with all sustainably farmed, estate fruit. This wine is in a class of its own. Perfect for casual drinking on a hot day, it’s bursting with notes of guava, pineapple, mango and jasmine. This wine has a significant amount of sediment because it was not cold stabilized or disgorged after its secondary bottle fermentation. 

corta y raspa palomino.png

Corta y Raspa, "Cádiz La Charanga Mahina"

Andalucía, Cádiz, ESP

palomino (2019)  $42

Corta y Raspa is a label made by Mayeteria Sanluqueña, a collective of farmers who also makes their own wines. In this case, given the small production of each grower, they decided to come together in 2016 and form a group to combine resources. Currently the group is made up of 4 mayetos: Antonio Bernal Ortega, Rafael Rodriguez Jimenez, Jose Manuel Harana Yuste, and Daniel Rodriguez. The pillars of this mayetería are organic farming, preservation of old vines, and spontaneous fermentations in old sherry botas. The wine is bottled without fining or filtering. All of their wines are labeled under the Corta y Raspa brand which is a reference to a specific type of pruning used locally. We like this wine as a dessert option and for solo drinking. The nose and texture feel very much like a fino sherry with deep notes of toasted hazelnut and a touch of salinity. Definitely a good choice for the curious wine drinker!

christopher-barth-handwerk.png

Christopher Barth, "Handwerk Riesling"

Rheinhessen, DEU

riesling (2020)  $43

Christopher Barth is a young winemaker who came from the school of enology at Geisenheim University, which emphasizes biodynamic viticulture. 
Barth is currently working on 7 hectares of vineyards in three different plots in the southeastern part of Rheinhessen and received his Demeter certification in 2020. Barth works largely with riesling grown on  volcanic soils as well as, silvaner, sauvignon blanc, pinot noir and pinot blanc. Harvesting is done by hand. This riesling is a beautiful example of a wine that balances sweet and savory notes. Initially savory and herbal, the mid plate shows crisp acidity and ends on a round, yellow apple note and flinty minerality. We suggest pairing it with a bitter greens salad or other light fare. 

frecciarosa-sillery-pinotnero.png

Frecciarossa, "Sillery"
Lombardy, Casteggio, ITA

pinot nero bianco (2019)  $28

The Frecciarossa estate sits above the small town of Casteggio, in the hills of Oltrepò Pavese, at the same latitude as Piemonte, Burgundy and Bordeaux. Like these other famous regions, Oltrepo Pavese has been a wine growing area since the days of ancient Rome. Founder Mario Odero came back to Italy shortly after WW 1, around 1919. He was originally from Genoa but spent most of his adult life in England, working the coal trade between the UK and Italy. Four generations later, the vineyards have expanded and Mario’s great granddaughter, Valeria, is head of operations. Crushed red berries and white-flesh stone fruits dance with spices, balsamic herbs, and pressed white flowers in this enveloping, lively pinot nero bianco. This wine layers its silky texture on a sturdy acidic spine. This straw-yellow wine is an unusual spin on the traditionally red wine grape.

botromagno-gravina.png

Botromagno, "Gravina Bianco"

Puglia, Gravina, ITA

greco, malvasia (2020) $31

In 1991, the D’Agostino family merged with the local cooperative winery of more than 100 growers, creating Botromagno. The D’Agostinos invested in the Gravina DOC, recovering the production of this white wine and rebuilding its reputation as an elegant and versatile wine. Today, they are the only producers of the flavorful and refreshing gravina. This gorgeous, soft and silky wine smells like golden apple cider and tastes like buttery, caramelized tarte tatin. Excellent for solo drinking or richer seafood dishes. 

weingutbrundlymayr-landt.png

Weingut Bründlmayer, "L& T Grüner Veltliner"

Niederösterreich, Kamptal, AUT

grüner veltliner (2020)  $28

Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. Willi Bründlmayer leads the family estate together with his wife Edwige, Thomas Klinger and Master of Wine Andreas Wickhoff. This is a lovely spring and early summer white, flush with floral notes, lime zest and the lingering taste of spicy spring greens. Excellent for solo drinking or with light tapas. 

Red Tail Ridge, "Good Karma Riesling"

Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake, USA

riesling (2020) $25

Red Tail Ridge Winery is owned and operated by husband and wife Mike Schnelle and Nancy Irelan. The bulk of Red Tail Ridge’s production is riesling, but they also grow several clones of chardonnay and pinot noir alongside small experimental plots of blaufrankisch, dornfelder and teroldego. As a former executive in charge of viticulture and oenology R&D at a large winery, Nancy strongly believes in sustainability and the winery is the only LEED gold-certified green winery in New York. Along with their commitment to sustainability, Red Tail Ridge works within their local community. Learn more about Red Tail Ridge’s role in community-supported relief from food insecurity. This riesling has a lovely, bright acidity that’s balanced with notes of stone fruit like peaches and apricots and the scent of white flowers. We suggest pairing this with spicy foods and summer salads.

chateaufarizeau-entredeuzmers.png

Château Farizeau, "Entre-Deux-Mers"

Bordeaux, Entre-Deux-Mers, FRA

sauvignon blanc, sémillon, muscadelle (2020) $40

 

The Moreau family has been involved in the wine trade in Bordeaux since the early 1800s, initially working as coopers and cellar masters. In 1911, Maxime Moreau was finally able to purchase a small vineyard of his own in Sadirac, in the region of Entre-Deux-Mers. In 1980, Maxime's son, André, and his wife, Nicole, officially founded Château Farizeau. André's eldest son, Guillaume, eventually joined the family winery, bringing with him a renewed focus on farming and natural work in the cellar. The Moreau's began by ripping out high-yielding parcels and replanting them at much higher densities. The Moreau's went on to pursue full organic certification starting in 2010. They use biodynamic practices in the vineyard and cellar processes. The blend of sauvignon blanc, sémillon, muscadelle creates a fruity and floral wine with a supple texture. Notes of yellow fruits like yellow plums and nectarine compliment the citrus zip of lemon zest and aromas of white flowers.

cavaceppo-passerina.png

Il Conte Villa Prandone, "Cavaceppo Passerina"

Marche, ITA

passerina (2019)  $25

The brothers De Angelis (Walter, Emmanuel, Samuel and Marina) are the third generation to follow in the footsteps of the founders of Il Papa Marino, and Grandpa Amilcare who founded the company in the 1960s with 7 hectares of vineyards. Now Il Conte Villa Prandone has 50 hectares of land in the Montetinello district and has become an internationally recognized winery. This light white wine has breezy notes of pineapple and lemon zest. The silky texture and high acidity would make this an excellent pairing for seafood.

Castilla-La Mancha, Villanueva de Alcardete, ESP

tempranillo (2021)  $25

Currently 450 families’ descendants of the founding members, represented by 630 associates with an average age of 55 years and an average estate size of 7 hectares, constitute the soul of Bodegas Latúe. Bodegas Latúe was added in 2007 under the direction of Blanca Muro, who also leads the coop. he texture and look of this wine transported me to drinking nigori, a delicate, unfiltered sake, at a New York sushi counter. Floral and salty with notes of  yuzu, bitter melon and white strawberry. We recommend it with sushi and spring salads.

Bodegas Latúe, "La Mancha Tempranillo Rosado"

Castilla-La Mancha, Villanueva de Alcardete, ESP

tempranillo (2021) $22 

Bodegas Latúe began as the San Isidro Cooperative in 1954. At that time, 131 winegrowers were determined to produce Spanish wines that could compete with any other European wine. Currently there are 450 families in the cooperative, represented by 630 associates with an average age of 55 years and an average estate size of 7 hectares. The Bodegas Latúe label was added to the San Isidro Cooperative in 2007, under the direction of Blanca Muro, who still leads the co-op. The vineyards are located in central Spain, in Castilla-La Mancha. Bodegas Latúe, La Mancha Tempranillo Rosado 2021 is their first 2021 vintage to be released and should be enjoyed ASAP. This rose is a perfect choice for spring and killing the winter doldrums. It’s got a yogurt-like tartness that gives way to the delicate fruits and finishes with white pepper. Ideal for drinking all by its lonesome as warm days become a more regular occurrence.

jaszlaci-risingsun.png

Jász Laci, "Rising Sun"

Balaton, Somló, HUN

olaszrizling, juhfark, chardonnay (2020) $43 

Jász Laci founded the “Nagy Bajuszú Jász Laci Pincéje” (The Big Mustached Jász Laci’s Winery) in 2013 on Somló hill, a volcanic butte in western Hungary. His two first wines were both regionally traditional skin contact styles: an orange wine and a síller (minimal skin contact red). He went on to complete degrees in winemaking and viticulture, with a thesis was on low-sulfur winemaking and theKartulian (Georgian) winemaking method. Now, he only makes wines thatspend time on their skins. He adds zero or very little sulfur in the cellar. His vineyards are in the Somló region, Hungary’s smallest appellation and once an underwater volcano. Now dormant, its slopes of ancient sea sediment, hardened lava, and basalt are home to some of Hungary’s steepest vineyards.This is one of the most unique orange wines we’ve tasted. Instead of a typically tea-like and tannic presentation, this blend is bursting with baking spice notes of nutmeg and almond extract. Tangerine acid and fruit with a smoky finish. 

gonc-anna.png

Gönc Winery, "Anna Rosé"

Podravje, SVN

žametna črnina, pinot noir, pinot grigio, blaufränkisch (2021)  $30

When Peter came of age, they built a new cellar in Ptuj and started Gönc again. Peter is the 4th generation of winemakers and winegrowers in the family. This is the perfect rose for drinking as the weather turns. Springy notes of white strawberry and lavender florals with a bright acidic peak and crisp finish.

Martin Arndorfer and his wife, Anna Steininger both come from winemaking families and grew up in the craft. Anna remembers working in the caller and vineyards since she was a young girl and Martin found his love of winemaking at 12. As adults, they began their own wine making project in Austria’s Kamptal region in the northeastern part of the country. Their vineyards are worked using sustainable farming methods and many of their wines are finished in barriques, which are large oak barrels that have often been toasted. This wine has a summery warmth to it, like fresh hay left out to dry in the sun. Juicy notes of pomegranate and cranberries bring tartness and depth to the palate.

bodegasfrontonio-miscroscosmico.png

Bodegas Frontonio, "Microcósmico"

Aragón, Valdejalón, SPA

garnacha (2018) $30

Bodegas Frontonio is the personal project of Fernando Mora of Aragón, Spain. Mora and his team own fifty hectares of beautiful old bush vines in rocky clay-limestone. Aragón is thought to be the birthplace of the garnacha grape, which makes up 100% of this wine. This is a bright and juicy gem that still has depth. Notes of charcoal provide a foil to the robust tart, red fruit notes of red currants and cherries. Light bodied with a dry finish. 

redtailridge-pinot.png

Red Tail Ridge, "Finger Lakes Pinot Noir"

Finger Lakes, Seneca Lake, USA

pinot noir (2020) $31

 

 This 100% pinot noir is a light and juicy expression of the varietal that spends 10 months on the lees in old oak barrels. This softens the tannins and brings out herbaceous notes of oregano and thyme that nicely contrasts with the fruity, hard cherry candy flavors.

dangelo-aglianico.png

Casa Vinicola D’Angelo, "Aglianico Del Vulture"

Basilicata, Barile, IT

aglianico (2017)  $34

D’Angelo is a fourth generation family vineyard in Basilicata, Italy. It’s wines made their first appearance at the 1924 Bari Trade Fair and began importing to the US in the 1980s.

giribaldi dolcetto.png

Giribaldi, "Schiena del Crottino"

Piedmont, Dolcetto D'Alba, ITA

dolcetto (2017)  $26

The Giribaldi vineyards and winery in Piedmont, Italy are run by 10 family members who are third generation viticulturalists and wine makers. In 2001, the Giribaldis began the process of switching their vineyards over to organic production and in 2004, they received their certification. In 2015, they began experimenting with low sulphite winemaking and natural production methods. Christie says this wine “does a good job of representing that it grows in the dirt,” which makes me laugh but also feels right. This lighter-bodied red has a nice fruit-forward structure heavy on notes of blackberry and balanced with black pepper spice and a springy green quality. Serve with a slight chill.

marinier-chinon.png

Domaine de la Marinière, "Chinon La Peau de l'Ours"

Loire Valley, Chinon, FRA

cabernet franc (2020) $35

The Domaine de la Marinière, situated in Panzoult on the eastern edge of Chinon, has been farmed by the Desbourdes family since 1965. The land here was initially used as a polycultural farm, raising animals and growing cereal grains in addition to grapes. Renaud Desbourdes returned to help his father in the 1980s, turning the focus to grape growing and winemaking and expanding the vineyard plantings, and eventually took full control of the domaine in 1999. Today, Renaud’s son, Boris, has joined his father full-time, and is helping to take this traditional family farm into the next generation. Boris initially became passionate about organic farming after working with Vincent Laval in Champagne, and upon his return, he immediately transitioned his family’s vineyards to organics. This 100% cabernet franc from the Loire Valley hits all of the classic notes of cabernet franc with green notes of bell peppers and the woodsy spice of white peppercorn. The twist is that this wine was carbonically macerated, which brings forward fresh red fruit notes and some extra zip.

lebled-cot.png

Barbara Lebled, "Hey! Un Dernier Côt?"

Loire, Vin de France, FRA

côt/malbec (2020) $37

Barbara Lebled is the daughter of Laurent LeBled who made his first vintage in 2010 after switching careers and learning the trade. In 2019, Laurent was able to purchase 10 hectares of vines and a cellar from a retiring vigneron in the same proximity to the Saint-Aignan vines he’d been working. After acquiring all of this land, Barbara stepped in to help her father and in return was granted 2.5 hectares to begin her own project. This is her first independent vintage from that land. The name of the wine is a pun. "Hey! Un Dernier Coup?" roughly translates to "Hey, One last Drink?". The word coup has been replaced with Côt, the grape this wine is made with. This wine is carbonically macerated, a process that highlights the fruit notes and brings them to the forefront. Notes of black plums, and blackberries mingled with deeper notes of earth and balsamic, leaving this wine complex but still light on its feet. 

intellego-pinkmustache.png

Intellego Wines "The Pink Mustache"

Western Cape, Swartland, ZAF

 syrah, cinsault (2020) $31 

Intellego translates “to understand” in Latin and is aptly named as Jurgen is just beginning to understand more than the potential of Swartland. He currently owns no vineyards and no cellar of his own, but developed Intellego while working at Lammershoek with Craig 'El Bandito' Hawkins. His wall of old barrels in the rented space at Annexkloof bears the names of favorite musicians and DJs. Intellego Wines never fail to delight us. This rosé has a nose like fresh goat cheese followed by flavors of cherries and strawberry tea on the palate. We recommend drinking this while crushing a whole pizza.

stoplman-crunchyroastie.png

Stolpman Vineyards, "Syrah Crunchy Roastie Rainbow"

California, Ballard Canyon,

USA

syrah, viognier (2020)  $43

Thomas Stolpman founded Stolpman Vineyards over 20 years ago on a limestone outcropping in the hills of California’s Central Coast. Now it’s in the hands of a talented team of people, including Peter Stolpman, Thomas’ son. This family business takes ecological impact and concerns seriously while focusing on making fun, light hearted wines. This syrah is carbonically macerated, which brings forward the crushable cranberry and raspberry flavors in a zippy and light bodied red. The finish is tart and reminiscent of a yogurty tang. The bottle is named for the infamous “Double Rainbow” video.
