Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2014 Product #30562 (In Stock)
Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2014 Villa Dria Gascogne Blanc Colombard Sauvignon 2014

The motto here is “Gascony seen by a feminine point of view.”  Other than the fact that the estate is led by women, I’m not sure what that really means, but this is a heck of a delicious white for Spring and Summer sipping.  The blend is 80% Colombard – the main white grape in Gascony – for bright acidity and round texture and 20% Sauvignon Blanc for a big burst of fruit and touch of fresh hay.  The fruit flavors coat your palate with ripe green melon, golden apple, and orange/tangerine flavors set off by lemony acids, a dash of minerality, and a whiff of fresh cut grass.  A great summer sipper that delivers Sauvignon Blanc-like flavors that have been softened and tamed by the Colombard.  Yummy with salads, asparagus, shellfish, or just to sip on its own.

La Cappuccina Soave 2014 Product #30447 (In Stock)
La Cappuccina Soave 2014 La Cappuccina Soave 2014

As fine a release of this long-time favorite as we've ever seen! 100% Garganega (organic!) with 5 months lees contact for richness and depth. A rich, almost opulent, texture to the lemon, mineral, and grilled nut flavors with bitter citrus pith and orange zest on the mouthwatering finish. More than rich enough to enjoy solo, but stunning with smoked, grilled or poached fish.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava 2014 Product #30153 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2014 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro Schiava  2014

Schiava (also called Vernatsch or Trollinger) was actually the region’s most planted grape for many years – with 60% of total vineyard area – until Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay began to supplant it.  That’s too bad, because the light, crisp, and juicy red wines this local grape makes are fun to drink and pair well with a wide range of foods.

Reflecting the cultural and linguistic diversity of Alto Adige, the Schiava grape is called “Kalterersee” in the local dialect of the region around Lake Caldaro.  Grapes for this beauty grew on loamy, limestone gravel soils at 230-450 meters above the Lake and were fermented and aged entirely in tank. A delicious farmhouse red, loaded with red berry fruit, a hint of smoke, and a bright gentle finish.  Kind of like a ripe Chinon (but without the herbal notes), this is delicious with a light chill and shines with everyday foods and cured meats.  Great value, too.

Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Product #30464 (In Stock)
Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014 Kellerei Kaltern Caldaro K Rosso Alto Adige 2014

We confess to being huge fans of Kellerei Kaltern, the outstanding cooperative winery perched in the foothills of the Dolomites just outside Balzano, Italy.  The Pinot Grigio and Pinot Bianco from the hills sloping down to Lake Kaltern are mainstays here, but it's the lake-side reds that are most special to us.

Both the very popular Schiava and gutsier Lagrein bottlings rely on older vines, so the winery created this blend to feature younger vines (up to 30 years) of both.  The light-colored Schiava give this wonderful aromas and flavors of cherry, lilac, and rose petal while the more powerful Lagrein adds black raspberry, plum, and licorice notes.  Light - just 12.5% abv - but packs a big flavor punch.  Try it cool with a spread of cheese and cured meat and we think you'll be convinced!

"Here, Here, Here!" chalked the monk charged with finding taverns for the bishop to visit after tasting this Umbrian classic.  A blend of Trebbiano, Malvasia and Roscetto, Falesco's version is lemony and fresh with pretty accents of lemon rind and fennel frond.  Finishes clean and citrusy with a hint of herb. Great seafood, sausage or sipping white.

De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2014 Product #30196 (In Stock)
De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2014 De Angelis Falerio DOC Bianco 2014

Best vintage yet for this fresh, fruit-filled, Italian white. The Falerio DOC sits at the southern end of Marche, on Italy's Adriatic coast just East of Umbria.  The relatively new DOC was created in 1975 to promote the region's two best white wine grapes-Passerina and Pecorino-while continuing to allow use of the ubiquitous Trebbiano.

Great aromas of pear, peach, and lime with a salty scent of the sea in the background.    On the palate, there's loads of ripe, creamy peach, apple, pear and nectarine fruit with a spritz of key lime juice and seltzer followed by a chalky, salty, mineral-driven, finish.  There's a lot of creamy richness here that will please fans of unoaked Chardonnays, but the zesty acidity and mineral element make this super fresh and mouthwatering.  Brilliant with a garlicky scampi and seafood but pretty darn fun to just drink at a party or with friends over antipasti.  Fantastic value.

Volpetti Cesanese 2014 Product #30446 (In Stock)
Volpetti Cesanese 2014 Volpetti Cesanese 2014

Even bigger, bolder, more fruit filled, and even more delicious than before (while still pretty garishly packaged).  From vineyards around Rome, the Volpetti packs a punch of lush dark damson plum and black cherry fruit with accents of earth and spice.  A short stay in old oak barrels softens the tannins and adds a hint of sweet balsamic.  Drink this a touch cool with pizza margherita, a bowl of pasta in red sauce, or even a big, juicy, burger and you'll be very, very, happy!

Ferraton Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Samorens 2014 Product #30460 (In Stock)
Ferraton Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Samorens 2014 Ferraton Cotes Du Rhone Blanc Samorens 2014

Here's a delicious white Rhone from biodynamic producer Ferraton Pere et Fils.  It's a blend of about equal parts Grenach Blanc and Clairette, picked ripe and made all in stainless steel tank.  It's all about aromas and flavors of peach, white flowers, and lime with a dusting of white pepper and crushed bitter mineral providing support on the mouthwtering finish.  Lovely to sip and will sing with fish or salads.

"The medium-bodied, clean, crisp and balanced 2014 Côtes du Rhône Samorens Blanc offers plenty of citrus, white flowers and minerality on the nose. Made from Grenache Blanc and Clairette brought up all in stainless steel, it’s a rock solid white that’s ideal for starting a meal with over the coming 2-3 years."Wine Advocate 88 points

Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2014 Product #30470 (In Stock)
Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2014 Bodegas Virgen De La Sierra Macabeo Albada 2014

Better known under it's Rioja name of Viura, Macabeo flies under the radar as a main or blending grape in white Rioja, Cava, and other regional wines.  British Master of Wine Jancis Robinson has dubbed it "the Cinderella grape" in recognition of the way Macabeo is coming out of the shadows now and being allowed to shine on it's own.

This is a fine example from 35 year-old vines in Calatayud, not far from Rioja. You'll find Macabeo's signature notes of peach, orange, and almond here lifted by a note of juicy lemon.  Rich and creamy on the palate with good weight and a nice, refreshing, dusty minerality on the generous finish.  This will be especially delicious with fresh water fish done with butter and nuts or even with richer dishes like salmon.

Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Product #30627 (In Stock)
Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014 Ijalba Rioja Viura Genoli Blanco 2014

A great example of how refreshing and fun white Rioja can be when it's not too ripe or over-oaked.  Here 100% Viura sees no oak at all, and that lets the crisp, ripe, pear, apple, and stone fruit flavors shine through. The fruit pumps on through the generous finish where a touch of dusty stone adds interest. Try it with seafood, salads, or just warm afternoons!

Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Product #30699 (In Stock)
Odoardi Savuto Red 2013 Odoardi Savuto Red 2013

A paradox - how can such a fresh, vibrant, red come from the brutally hot Southern Italian DOC of Savuto in Calabria?  Elevation (Odoardi's vineyards are at up to 2,000 feet) helps, as does a big dose (45%) of Gaglioppo, the soft and bright grape called Arvino locally.  Gaglioppo gives this bright cherry/berry fruit and a soft, round, juicy mid-palate while Aglianico (25%) adds structure and Magliocco Caniino, Greco Nero, and Nerello Cappuccino perfume and complexity.  A great pizza, sausage, pasta, grilled food red, especially with a chill.

Les Ligeriens Rose d' Anjou 2015 Les Ligeriens Rose d' Anjou 2015

A fresh, fruit-filled, fun, low-alcohol bargain rosé that can make the cloudiest (or coldest) day seem positively summery.  It's a blend of Gamay and Grolleau from the centeral Loire Valley that bursts with red plum, ripe red berries, and a touch of strawberry blossom aromas and flavors.  Round and fleshy in your mouth, it finishes crisp and clean with cranberry and raspberry flavors lingering nicely.

Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Product #30755 (In Stock)
Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014 Dom De Viranel Trilogie Vdp Cessenon Rouge 2014

The Viranel family has made wine on the stony soils of Saint-Chinian, in the very heart of the Languedoc's sunny, hot, dry vineyard, since 1551.  Today a new generation is making wines with traditional Languedoc warmth and richness and just a touch of modern innovation.  Here, brothers Amaud and Nicolas combine Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and the much maligned Alicante Bouschet to make a fresh, fun, south of France treat!

Cabernet and Syrah are found across Languedoc and rate as "improving" varieties, while Alicante thought of as the grape that needs improving!  It's a red-fleshed berry that gives lots of color and first became popular as a way to darken over-cropped Grenache/Carignan blends.  But from old vines (these were planted in 1939) and at low yields, it adds a burst of tobacco-like complexity to the big, lush, red and black fruit aromas and flavors here.  Juicy and a touch decadent (in a good way!), this no-oak red will shine with anything off the grill (although the winery's suggestion of rabbit with turnip or pigeon with raisins sounds good, too!).

Everything about Washington's Thurston Wolfe winery is a bit "unique," including this unusual blend of 58% Pinot Gris, 37% Viognier and 5% Orange Muscat all made in tank.  Uniquely delicious, too!  Fresh and bright with clean peach and apple fruit on the nose and a touch of floral complexity.  Plenty of peach, pear, and pineapple fruit on the palate, but this stays crisp and dry right through the  fruit and flower finish.  Fun stuff!

An outstanding in real Madeira for sipping or use in rich sauces or soups.  The light tawny color and heady aromas and flavors of toasted nuts, dark caramel, and burnt orange peel come from barrel aging and exposure to high heat for 3+ months - the process that "Madeirizes" the wine and creates its distinctive tang.  Lightly sweet to balance the zingy acids.

Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012 Cantele Salice Salentino Riserva 2012

If you know Negromaro from Salice Salentino, you’ll recognize the aromas and flavors here.  The dark color tells you this is a ripe, deep, wine, and the aromas of dark black plum and cherry, warm licorice root, savory spice, and purple flowers reinforce that impression.  In the mouth, the flavors are bold, warming and ripe – blackberry, black cherry, hot earth, roasted meat, spice and cocoa powder – with plenty of the meaty, earthy, complexity that Salice Salentino is known for.  But, it’s the purity, clarity, and wonderful freshness of flavor and texture that take this to another level.  Ripe, not roasted.  Powerful, not rustic.  Absolutely delicious with grilled sausages, roasted meats, or just nuts and olives, at a value price hard to resist.

Look at the back label - how can you possibly resist supporting the work of dedicated women like these two?  Sisters-in-law Marta and Maria Elena have transformed this old (1790) estate into a cutting-edge but back to the future gem.  They've converted to certified organic farming and will soon achieve biodynamic certification.  They work with the classic grapes of Spain's Penedes, here blending three grapes normally used in Cava:  Parellada, Macabeu, and Xarel-Lo. It's all about tangy fruit - citrus, passion fruit, under-ripe peach - salty mineral, and a lifting boost of fresh lime zest.  Fascinating and delicious.

Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2015 Product #30585 (In Stock)
Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2015 Dom De La Bastide Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2015

Domaine de la Bastide’s vineyards are near the village of Visan in the far northern reaches of the Cotes du Rhone appellation and within sight of the hills that define the eastern edge of the Rhone Valley.  While there’s still plenty of sunshine and mid-day heat here, the nights cool off more quickly than further south making the limestone soils exceptionally well suited to fresh, delicious, whites.

This is a blend of 60% Viognier, 10% Grenache Blanc, 20% Roussanne, and 10% Bourboulenc, all planted by Vincent Boyer about 10 years ago and farmed organically.  The ripe fruit is harvested in the early morning cool and fermented and aged in cool stainless steel tanks for maximum freshness.  You’ll find generous aromas that center on mid-summer ripe yellow peach and fresh apricot with accents of white flowers and honeysuckle.  The wine feels rich and broad on the palate, but not at all heavy or thick, with lush peach and apricot fruit, more floral/honeysuckle, and a juicy dash of lime for freshness.  The limey acidity and a touch of dusty mineral lends freshness to the rich, long, finish and keeps you coming back for more.  A great companion for anything from chicken salad to fresh fish or just a sunny afternoon.
