Margin Santa Cruz Mountain Rosé Summer Wine by one of California’s Brightest Rising Stars

We have had the pleasure of watching Megan’s growth as a winemaker. Fun and funky in the beginning there was always an impression that these were made by talented hands. Fast forward to now and Megan is making some of the state’s most terrier driven wines that are as poised and complex as they are a joy to drink.

Volcanic Wines from Lazio

Volcanic Wines from Lazio

Andrea Occhipinti started his eponymous winery to focus on indigenous Lazio grape after falling in love with the area when he attended oenology school there. No, Andrea is not related to the more famous Occhipinti’s in Sicily. But he does share with Arianna an almost preternatural ability to convey terroir through gentle and thoughtful winemaking.

Boxler is a granite specialist, and Brand boasts plenty of it – granite that is more and more decomposed as you go up slope. Brand is a Riesling that ages extremely well, and we are excited to be able to offer one today that has already spent more than 5 years in the cellar.

Amorotti = Beauty and Nature in Abruzzo Valentini-like, for a Fraction of the Price!

Amorotti = Beauty and Nature in Abruzzo Valentini-like, for a Fraction of the Price!

We are always a bit skeptical when importers talk about new producers with lavish comparisons to the greats that are nearby. “This is the next Conterno” or “it tastes just like Raveneau” are the kinds of hyperbole we hear all the time. But sometimes, every once in a while, they are right on. This was the case when we were introduced to the beautiful wines of Amorotti.

Soave: A Market Failure Means Great Values

Soave: A Market Failure Means Great Values

Soave also has its share of Foillards – a handful of producers who make great wines from top terroirs using traditional or enlightened methods, usually both. Pieropan may be the best of them. Among their lineup are two singe-vineyard bottlings from the heart of the Soave Classico zone, where old vines grow in volcanic soils at fairly high altitudes.

Cezin Jasnieres: The Beauty of Far Flung Wine

Cezin Jasnieres: The Beauty of Far Flung Wine

Today's special place is to the north of the Loire Valley, on a tributary confusingly named the Loir (our spell check so badly wants to add the "e"). Here, those generations of experimenters discovered that it happens to be a perfect place to grow a grape they call Pineau de la Loire (this time you really do need the "e") but everyone else calls Chenin Blanc.

John Cameron: The Wizard of The Dundee Hills

John Cameron: The Wizard of The Dundee Hills

The name John Paul Cameron has become synonymous with the best Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made this side of France.

Enfield, and a Most Serious Rosé

Enfield, and a Most Serious Rosé

In recent years, the world of Rosé wine seems to have gone straight from sweet white Zinfandels to the palest, lightest pink wines imaginable, usually from Provence, but increasingly from every other corner of the wine world as well.

All of this, of course, misses a very important wine category, that we’ll just call “Serious Rosé”

Trediberri + Little Wines = Deliciousness

Trediberri + Little Wines = Deliciousness

Trediberri is a couple, Stefania and NIcolas Oberto, making Barolo in La Morra, the village known for its elegance and pretty aromatics. A few years ago, our colleagues in New York “discovered” them, when they showed up at the New York shop and told us they were looking for a U.S. importer. After tasting their unbelievably good wines, we put them in touch with some good people and the rest is history. Trediberri has since become the latest Barolo sensation in America.
