Los Monteros Cava
I adore Cava and for everyday sparkling wine, the Spaniards do it right. There’s something about those bubbles that just screams “PARTY!” I don’t mean party like it’s 1999, I mean celebrate, appreciate, give thanks. It is light in style, but complex, dry and lively. 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.

Chardonnay Mitsuko’s Vineyard Napa 2014 Clos Pegase
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.

Unity 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
There is something very satisfing about a well crafted, over the top California Cabernet and Unity is one of those wines. Made as a family endeavor by Fisher, the premium winery of Napa, with the help of their children. The wine is a lush blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon,13% Merlot, 6% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petite Verdot from 3 vineyard sites from small, family owned and sustainable sources. This wine consistently receives big ratings if you care about that sort of thing, but more importantly, it provides rich, juicy blueberry, blackberry fruit, smooth tannins and a silky, luxurious finish only a premium California Cabernet can provide.

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.
