FEATURED: !ROSSONOAH!

FEATURED: !ROSSONOAH!

ROSSONOAH is fermented in steel tanks and then aged for 1 year in old Slavonian oak, to preserve freshness and fruit but also add a bit more complexity.

The result is a bright, juicy wine that is full of mountain herbs and savory minerals and has just the right amount of structure to enjoy with almost any food.

Featured: 80 +1 is a Magic Number

This is a wine story unlike any other. Fate and circumstance meeting up with dedication and tradition, just an hour outside of Italy’s most famous city. The nuns had been working for decades, unknown to the wine world. But Giampiero found them, created an authentic and dedicated relationship with the Sisters that has greatly impacted the wines.

Featured: Imereti, Set, Go! Gaioz Sopromadze's Georgian Gems

The region rightfully claims the title “Birthplace of Wine.” And, as wine drinkers in the US become pickier and more educated, they are seeking out a wine’s history. Finally, history and tradition has become another decisive factor on whether to drink a certain wine (like place, producers, and most importantly--taste).
