Happy Holidays!
Holiday Display
     We always find ourselves getting really revved up around the holidays and for good reason!  This is our busiest time of year, and our customers are buzzing with an infectious bounty of yuletide cheer (albeit often while in the throws of SSF ~ seasonal shopping frenzy.)  There's a lot to be excited about this year - a steady stream of new wines which are chomping at the bit to be stuffed into the stockings of your friends and family or shared at the year's most festive parties and gatherings.  Also, don't forget that in just over a week (on Saturday, December 15th), we'll be joined here during our tasting by esteemed New York Times wine journalist Eric Asimov from 1:00 - 3:00pm!

 A Small Vineyards Discovery:
Journey Through Italy
Small Vineyards What's behind that gold seal on all of the bottles that come to us from the Small Vineyards portfolio?  A philosophy that's very close to our hearts!  Small Vineyards is an importer of wines from Italy and Spain which, just like Wine Authorities, focuses exclusively on small family-owned winegrowers.  In fact, each of the producers they represent is among the smallest 10% of its respective region.  This Saturday, join us as we pour samples from four of these excellent (and gift worthy) Italian selections which prove once again that small producers not only offer the best value and quality but are indeed often the most innovative and forward thinking as well.  Bellissimo!

"Sara" Bianco 2011

Malvasia, Trebbiano,

Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc 

(Tuscany, Italy)

Sort of a white-wine take on the crowd pleasing Supertuscan tradition, this is a vivacious blend of two classic Tuscan grapes (Trebbiano, Malvasia Blanc) and two familiar French varietals (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc). The four...

Elia Barbera

Poderi Elia 

Barbera d'Asti 2009

100% Barbera 

 (Piemonte, Italy)

Fruit from 90 year-old vines is interesting on its own, but Barbera this intense is cause for a double take. In this case, 18 months in French oak helps bring out the grape's innate depth, matching a soft, modern texture with typical Italian...

Tempranillo Perazzeta

"Erio" Rosso 2010

Super Tuscan

50% Sangiovese, 17% Cabernet,

17% Merlot, 16% Syrah   

 (Tuscany, Italy)

Supertuscans are designed to be crowd pleasers, and they don't get much more approachable than this great blend from Perazzeta. In fact, we could go so far as to say that it represents some ur-theory, some unifying constant of red wine, some...

Arcangelo Palama
Primitivo 2011

100% Primitivo

(Puglia, Italy)


A bold red with blackberry fruit both elegant and rustic. Ninì Palamà is a restaurateur and vinicoltore in the southern Pugliese town of Cutrofiano. His wines are named for his father Michele Arcangelo, and they herald the divinity that rises out of Salento's chalky, clay-rich soil. This luscious Primitivo is...
