Lambert de Seyssel Petit Royal

I used this lovely sparkling wine from the Savoie for my wedding celebration. Lucky for us, there is some amount left. Get it while you can.

Nobilissima Prosecco DOC

We bring Prosecco out for any excuse to celebrate. It’s simpler than Champagne and infinitely better than most sparkling wines costing much more. There is insipid Prosecco and there is beautifully
 dry and aromatic Prosecco. Try it, you’ll love it.

Clos Normand French Brut Hard Cider 

There are few beverages more refreshing than dry hard cider. This version from Normandy is both crisp and delicate, with lively dry fruit and a lovely bitter finish. Feeling adventurous? Try a Normand Kir, a lovely drink combining French cider, creme de cassis and a dash of Calvados.

Clos Pegase 2016 Chardonnay
 Mitsuko’s Vineyard Napa

We are rockin’ the old school with this wine. It’s a style you don't see too much anymore, but it certainly has a place in the California Chardonnay Pantheon. It’s 100% barrel fermented and is redolent of lemon curd and ripe pineapple, while maintaining freshness.

Domaine Valanges 2017 Macon Prissé Les Clos

This delicious 100% Chardonnay from the Mâconnais is full of pear fruit with delicate white flower aromas. Fresh and lively on the palate with a touch of chalky minerality and a zingy citrus finish makes this one of Burgundy’s most affordable white wine pleasures.

Jubiläumskellerei 2017 Pinot Grigio Alto Adige

I find it hard to hide my distain for generic Pinot
 Grigio. The insipid, somewhat sweet, thin wine
 that is served at almost any chain restaurant is 
often overpriced and underwhelming. Well wine 
lovers, I have good news for you. There is lovely, 
wonderfully dry, peach infused Pinot Grigio from 
the Alto Adige region of Italy. The region is in the Northern part of Italy on the Austrian border and 
the wine is more analogous to Grüner Veltliner than the Pinot Grigio you are familiar with.

Pascal Jolivet 2017 Sancerre Rosé

Produced from 100% Pinot Noir from the Loire Valley, this winery employs a non interventionist approach in the vineyards and winemaking practices. Using all native yeasts, the wine is full
 of juicy strawberry and white peach fruit with
 a hint of tangerine peel.

Stoplman 2016 Syrah Ballard Canyon

It is relatively easy to grow Syrah in California’s climate, but growing Syrah that tastes like something from the Northern Rhone is a whole different story. This small, family owned winery makes a delicious Syrah with juicy berry flavors, hints of licorice in the finish and that appealing iron, gamey element typically reserved in French wines. Love this wine!

Sineann 2014 Pinot Noir

We received the new vintage of this wine from our friends at Sineann who private label it for us and wow...what a wine. Perfect with almost any dish, this wine is curated from our good friend Peter Rosback of Sineann.  It shows the beauty of a bountiful vintage from key vineyard sites within the Willamette Valley. Beautiful, juicy dark cherry fruit and a long luxurious finish. Think Nicolas Potel as a Portlandia hipster.

Henry’s Drive Parson’s Flat 2015
Shiraz-Cabernet Sauvignon

Made by Kim Longbottom, these wines are always 
in short supply and high demand. This robust, 
rich, Australian blend from Padthaway is one of 
the most alluring, sexy reds I’ve tasted in a
 long time. Don’t miss out.

St. Cosme 2017 Côtes du Rhône

The wines from this Domaine have been getting a lot of press the last few years and that means this Côtes du Rhône is typically in short supply. Well, I’ve procured a decent amount to share with my French wine loving customers. 100% Syrah that is lush on the palate with juicy black fruit flavors and a 
rustic herbal and peppery finish.

EgoBodegas 2015 Fuerza

If you loved the wine Goru we featured a month, you are going to love another of their wines from the intriguing Spanish region of Jumilla. The wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Monastrell aged for 12 months in new American oak. The resulting wine is smooth, warm with dark plummy fruit. Perfect for these cooler, almost Spring days.
