Tasty Tuesday!
The Cotes Roannaise & 
Domaine Robert Serol 

  This Tuesday, April 16th, we present our mid-week FREE wine tasting.  Every Tuesday is tasty! From 5:00 - 7:00, we host this bonus tasting of three wines to get you through the early week and land you safely on hump day!
Serol of the Roannaise
   Passed down from father to son for over two centuries, the producer known today as Domaine Robert Serol has existed uninteruptedly through many generations.  Journey with us this Tuesday to the most southerly of Loire appellations, the Cote Roannaise, and sample one of Stephane Serol's very representative reds and two of the estate's wonderfully adventurous offerings including a remarkable Viognier in the tradition of Condrieu and a tangy-sweet sparkler that's perfect for spring!

And don't forget:
Our Tasty Tuesday 20% Mixed Case Discount!
After you taste, put together 12 bottles from our Tasty Tuesday lineup, and we'll take an entire 20% off!

Southern Italy
Southern ItalyThis weekend, we're headed south to Italy's foot-shaped land of vines!  We'll specifically be focusing on the ankle (Campania), the Achilles tendon (Molise), and the heel (Puglia) for tastes of four unique and very southerly delights.  Beginning in Molise, we'll meet a Tebbiano-based white that exudes sumptuous and refreshing richness. Next, we'll venture to Campania, where we'll encounter three of the region's most prized grapes in the form of an ethereally aromatic white blend and a bold but restrained example of the powerful volcanic varietal that is Aglianico.  Finally we'll hit up Puglia for a fantastic example of the Negro Amaro grape from the (very fun to say) Squinzano appellation!

Il Quadrifoglio (Terresacre) 

"Orovite" 2011

100% Trebbiano 

 (Molise, Italy)

The Trebbiano grape is sometimes dismissed as "undistinguished" filler whose hardiness and high acidity have led it to become one of the most ubiquitously planted grapes in the world. The good people of Terrasacre elevate this workhorse and allow its true character to shine. With sustainable agricultural practices and respect for the tradition...

Irpinia Bianco 2011

Aglianico dell'Irpinia 2011


100% Aglianico

 (Campania, Italy)
